Hope you're all enjoying the Easter weekend...and eating lot's of chocolate :0) and that the weathers been kind to you all,like it as here!
Today's card is for our new chellenge over at POLLYCRAFT....this week our host is the lovely Emma and she's set the theme of "FUN & GAMES".
I've used one of the new Swings and Slides 2 images "Skills"...coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's...i love these new images of Paula's,so perfect for children's cards.
The paper is Dovecraft from the "Masculine" set.
I printed the two different sized footballs from the computer and just went over the black parts with a black Promarker.
Garden twine from stash.....there's no sentiment yet,i'm not sure what i will use this card for,so will add it when needed.

Emma (CRAFTY EMMA'S STORE) is also our sponsor this week...with a fab prize up for grabs for one lucky winner...can i play along :0).

So darn cute San! How clever to use the soccer balls as part of the sketch elements - you're so creative that way on each and every card you make. Perfect coloring. I'd love the see the boy's face that gets this fabulous card - a look of pure delight I'm sure.
