Creative Card Crew Challenge 14 and Awards

Mornin´peeps, I hope the sun is shining for you and you all have a wonderful day.
This week´s theme at the Creative Card Crew has been set by our lovely Sharon and she wants us all to follow GEOMETRIC PATTERNS so come on and put those thinking caps on and join in.



I decided to go along with "circles" and have used "Skater Ian" from the Greeting farm , coloured him with my Prisma pencils blending with Sansodor. He sure looks as if he is having fun on his skate-board don´t you think?

My DP is from the Hopscotch pack from K&Co and I used my Swiss Dots folder to give a little texture. Sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly and as I used my circular nesties I suspended some buttons to continue my circular theme.


I am honoured that my blogging buddies Liza and Poppy have both passed this beautiful award onto me. Their blogs are amazing and I really appreciate all the wonderful comments that they, and everyone else leaves for me, so a huge thank you girls.

I'm going to pass these on to some awesome crafters, so without further ado, they are going to Marcea, Chris, Jen and Vicki.




Liza has also given me the Lemonade Award but as I have already passed this on it is here with my love for you my friends whom don´t have this already.
