DT card for The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge 23 Make It Sporty

Good morning! It's time for another challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox and this fortnight the theme is very topical - Make It Sporty!

Our lovely sponsor is Robyn's Fetish and the DT were fortunate to be able to use some of their cute images. I chose s. s. Hoppity. The rowing events in the Olympics are taking place on the River Lea just a few miles from where I live, so this was the perfect image!


I used Speccies to colour him in, and stickled all the water. The corners have been punched with a Woodware punch. The 3 strips of Velvet ribbon are from stash, they hide the join where I glued 2 pieces of paper from Prima's 'Alla Prima' collection.

The dragonflies are Magnolia dies, cut from a scrap of yellow paper and then thickly stickled. I only glued the bodies down so that the wings could be raised to give a 3D effect. The sentiment is an LotV stamp.

We have been preparing for our Children's Holiday Club at Church, which has an Olympic theme, and this card will be an ideal Thank You for one of our amazing organisers! I'm only sorry that the picture is so flat and dull, but unfortunately it was photographed on a flat and dull day. In real life it looks much brighter!

Thanks for looking, and do hoppity across to see the gorgeous cards made by the DT!

love Mags B x

Speccies: GB10, 8, EB1, PP1; BT1, 2, 4, 5; EB8, 5, 4, TN7, 5
