Roller Skate

Morning crafters :-)

I do believe we have a bit of sunshine here in Peterborough this morning!  I'm not sure how long it's going to last for though as the forecast for the weekend is terrible.

Mark and I are going to the Moto GP on Sunday at Silverstone and the weather forecast is for rain so guess who'll be getting wet?  Yep little ol' me!!!!  Off to buy some waterproofs today, did someone say it was summer?

Anyway, it's Friday (yippee) and we have a new challenge for you over at Fussy and Fancy.  As it's Father's Day here in the UK on Sunday we thought it would be a great (last minute) reminder to get your cards made for your dear old Dads or just to make a card for any male occasion.  So the challenge for the next fortnight is BOY ATTITUDE.

I was asked to make this card by a colleague at work for her son in laws 40th birthday.  The brief I was given was that he is a keen roller skater so this idea immediately sprang to mind and apparently he loved it.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Art Impressions - husband/father
Charisma Cardz - male cards
Do You Stack Up - boys/men
Clear It Out - male/eyelets
Outlawz - male cards

xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx
