A Gem of a Challenge #32 ... Janet's Sketch

Good morning

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.  It's a beautiful sunny morning here which is good news for me because Jamie is starting football club today.  He loves football but has been reluctant to join any teams until now so fingers crossed he likes it!  If he does you know where i'm going to be every Saturday morning from now on ... think I need to invest in some extra warm clothing for the upcoming winter months!!

It's time for a new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and this fortnight our lovely boss Janet is hosting with a sketch!  The prize is 6 digi images of the winner's choice from Pink Gem Designs.

I decided to use Nativity Philip which is a digi and is available as a line art drawing for you to colour or pre-coloured.  I was feeling a bit lazy when I made my card so opted for the pre-coloured one!  The papers are a mixture from my 'bits box'.  Sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You.  Finished off with a couple of punched snowflakes, pearls and die cut corners.

Right now off to get my little 'Beckham' kitted out! 

Hope you have a great weekend and manage to squeeze in some craft time :-)

Oh how I remember the football days! It became my job to wash the kit for the whole team each week (my Mum will do it, he said!) and I can tell you they get very, very muddy.

Great card Lisa, love Janet's images.

So cute Lisa, this is adorable and a great layout too! Don't feel lazy, you still had to put it all together and that takes a lot more effort than a shop bought card! :o)
Good luck to Jamie today :o)
