Tuesday 26 January 2016


Good morning all.
Looks like we will be battening down the hatches here as the storm that swept across the US at the weekend reaches GB. Hope you are all safe and sound over there, thank goodness that snow is not forecast, just strong winds and heavy rain. 
Anyway down to business. As it's Tuesday it's time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz. This week our theme is -


Simples. Just create a masculine project that has spots and stripes on it somewhere!
Here is my interpretation.

I used the sketch from the Paper Players for my layout and a few scraps from the bits box. I kept the colours to red and blue to match my nautical theme, using a LOTV stamp, coloured with Copics, fussy cut then placed over a circle die coloured to look like a life saving ring. This is no doubt off to replenish Ben's party card stash.
So please check out the rest of the DT's fab inspiration and join us this week.

I'd like to join in over at -
