Spots & Stripes

As I type this I am thinking ahead to where I will actually be the day this post goes live.  Hopefully at the end of last week everything went smoothly and we are now owners of a student flat for my son and are busy there decorating it before the start of term.  With that in mind, I thought I best press on with card making in August so that things were taken care of in plenty of time.

So, today sees a new challenge over at An Oldie But A Goodie, set this time by Helen, and she's gone with

Spots & Stripes
(Remember also to use something older than 6 months on your card and to tell us what it is.)

Sponsoring us again this time are the fabulous Bugaboo, who are offering our winner 7 free digi's of their choice.  They were also very kind to offer us DT girlies an image of choice - thanks Jodie.

So, back to the card, I chose AKV Schoolboy available here, coloured him with Promarkers & set him on LOTV Nitwits papers.  My oldie are the doodlebug letters and ribbon, both several years old.


My card is actually for a friends son who started school at the end of August - such a milestone in their little lives.  By all accounts things are going well for him so long may that continue.

Challenges;
Sketch n Stash - New image but old doodlebug letters
Milk Coffee Challenge - Back To School
By Lori Designs - Back to School
Little Red Wagon - Pretty Polka Dots
Polycraft Challenge - For the kids
Sweet Stampin - Spots & Stripes
Crafty Ribbons - Back To School



So for a chance to win a great prize, please join us this week at an OBAG.  For more inspiration hop back to the main blog page to see the rest of the DT works, Jx
