SNS New Challenge



Hi there  - hope you all had a lovely weekend, I had a lovely day with my sister on Saturday and then went out to lunch yesterday for Father's Day here in the UK. I used our new sketch over at Sketch and Stash to make my card for my Dad - he's a keen bird watcher and likes nothing better than going out taking pics and seeing what he can see.  Obviously better to do this in the summer - and that just happens to be our optional theme at SNS for this challenge - Summer Fun!
My image is called Adventure Guy by the brilliant Mo Manning - you can find a the image here in her on line store.

My papers are Webster's Pages, and the little birdies were a gift from matey, Lesley - I've inked the edges with a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Acutally, the wheel and arrow, which I sort of thought looked like his compass, were also a gift from Lesley- lucky me!


And, as we're being sponsored by the Stamp Fairy for this challenge - £10 voucher up for grabs, folks - I made another card using one of their images, Molly on her Swing.


The checked papers are  from Craftwork cards, and the rest  of the bits are from Stash - isn't she a little cutie!



You  can see the rest of the SNS team's gorgeous cards here.
