Where did the weekend go! I promised myself a crafting day on Saturday as the weather wasn't very nice and started my card for this weeks Penny Black challenge which is men's cards, something I usually struggle with. I used this cute PB stamp - Fly Away.
I paper pieced his hat and jacket with textured papers to look like material, and I stamped his plane onto an old silver Christmas card to give it a metallic look and then coloured with Promarkers. The reason for this was to enter 'I love Promarkers challenge - Paper Piecing', but by the time I finished the card, Mr. Linky had closed!
I followed the sketch this week on Papertake Weekly and used the 2 different sized check papers from the Papermania Blueberry hill pad - the challenge this week on Totally Gorjuss is checks so I will be entering it there!
I am also entering it in Passion for Promarkers - One for the Boys
and Craft Your Passion is also Male cards.

Well that it for now, I have a little job to do - DH runs a special needs youth club and they want to make Mothers Day cards, (I think he's giving me plenty of notice cause its not till the beginning of April!) so he has 'commissioned' 10 easel card blanks and suitable stamped images and embellishments - it'll be my good deed for the day! Oh! and he needs a lesson in making easel cards!!!
