Sk8er Boy

Hi, all! It's Wednesday, huzza! The weekend is in sight!

Think of me on Saturday, when I go with 2 other middle-aged ladies to Somerset, where we'll be camping for a week at a Christian Conference called New Wine. I have camped (though not for years!) but never attended a conference like this. It's the opposite for the other ladies! Wish us luck!

Back to today, and a card I made after doing some more colouring of dark skin with my Speccies. This is by Francoise Read for Woodware stamps, and I love him, he's having such a great time!

I apologise for the wonky photo, the light today is abysmal. The colours are much brighter irl.

The papers are snippets from Nitwits Tour of London set, I love these blues! I used a Nestie to cut the lad out but for once didn't try distressing round the edges, as I thought he'd need a lot of space for the marvellous tricks he's about to do!!

The baker's twine is from The Ribbon Girl and the buttons are from my button tin. The sentiment is a chipboard that came in a pack from The Works, I coloured it with Salty Ocean and Broken China Distress Inks then Glossy Accented. I also Glossy Accented the skateboar, it's lovely and shiny irl!

Challenges entered: I brake for challenges Red, White and Blue

Thanks for looking,  hope you all have a good day!

love Mags B x

Speccies: GB10, 9, 8; TB6, 5, 4; DR7, 5, 4
