SPECIAL DAD.....

Well where did the weekend go then!...Monday again and the start of a new week and also a new challenge over at POLLYCRAFT.....this week our lovely Maria's our host and not only as she set the theme of "VINTAGE" ,she's also come up with a fabby sketch for you to work with! I've used the new charity digi "Vintage Ronnie" which Paula's just released to help Emma (one of our DT)raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance...all proceeds from this image will go to that charity(minus Paypal fee's)..Emma's already raised over £800 so far and so not far off her target of £1000...well done Emma :0) I changed and printed the outline image off in Sepia...and used a Sepia Prisma pencil to colour it in...the map background is a page out of a old AA road atlas...no longer required due to the age of the Tom Tom's and Sat Nav's...but so glad my hubby didn't throw it away :0) I've distressed the paper both with a distressing tool and Distress Ink. We are sponsored this week by THE CREATIVE COTTAGE...and the lucky winner will get a £10 voucher to spend in the store....well worth joining in for!
I'm also entering this into the following challenges:-

TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS(Wed)...."Vintage".

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES(Thurs)...."Mmm Chocolate",food,drink or the colour of chocolate....mines the colour.


Well that's all for now...have a fab day and hope you'll all come and join in the fun over at POLLYCRAFT.

Take care
