Rugby Addict

Ooh how I would love to be at Ally Pally right now but will have to settle for the rain in Spain instead. Woo hoo it started to drizzle a few hours ago and everything now feels so fresh and temps have dropped to 25, ahh sheer bliss so I have had a wee play and managed to combine 3 challenges.

Die Cut Dreams #15 is It´s Raining Men so anything male oriented is ok. Stamp Something would like you to use your favourite layout or sketch and Simon Says It´s A Stitch Up and they are trying to reach 200 entrants this week so what else can a gal do but join in to help make up the numbers.

I have coloured Ian with my Copics then pricked around the border and backstitched, papers are PM For Him and sentiment is a peel off, golly gosh I have 1000´s of these.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and those of you fortunate enough to be at AP ... I hope you Spend, Spend Spend.

This is fantastic Nicola, you've coloured him beautifully. I'd settle for the rain in spain, been gorgeous here and really warm but nothing like the sun, sea and sand. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
