Good morning. I've heard from a blog friend that they have been unable to leave a comment on this blog. I'm not sure why as all the settings are as before but if you have tried like Sarah and been unable I do apologise and can only blame Blogger!!!
Anyway it's time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz and this time our theme is:-
There are lots of things which suggest summer, tennis, it is the start of Wimbledon fortnight, sun, sea or sand but I went with the theme of cricket. Nothing says summer in the UK more than cricket. I've spent many a summer evening taking my son to cricket matches along with his mates. A car full of spotty teens with all their kit, driving off to some quiet village cricket ground, not sure why they piled into mine, perhaps it was my music choices! The sun wasn't always shining and sometimes we got there only to turn around and come straight home because of a heavy downpour. You could also find me on the sidelines with a score book, often huddled in many layers to keep out the chill!
He doesn't play these days but he tries to get to as many Headingly Test and other 1st class and one day matches as work and family allow.
So here is my take using one of my earliest LOTV images.
After colouring with Copics and fussy cutting, he was arranged onto some punched grass and NitWits DP, framed with a simple frame matted on blue. I added a cricket ball made from a circle of dark red card with some white fine liner detail. The sentiment is from Magnolia, I think, it's from so long ago I can't remember!! Mounted on a die cut piece of yellow satin card, I added a smaller 'cricket ball' to cover the central flower.
So where will the summer theme take you? We'd love to see your takes in the gallery. There's more inspiration over at Cardz4Guyz.
Joining in over at:-
Masculine or Feminine
Has to be masculine. Although I love making girlie cards, I have far too many males in the family to make for and masculine cards also suit my CAS style. I agree with Squirrel that you can give a masculine card impact without embellishments!
