The Creative Cottage Challenge # 22 Celebrations!

Hi, how ya doing? Well I'm totally wrecked to be honest... just wish I could win the lottery and become a lady of leisure! Speaking of lottery wins... Rebekah has chosen our theme over at The Creative Cottage this fortnight which is 'Celebrations'... any kind of celebration counts so I chose to do a card for my nephew who just passed his GCSE's...

I've used this cute freebie digi image that I found at Hambo Stamps... bargain or what?! He's coloured with Promarkers of course! The paper is from the gorgeous Little Monkeys Pirate Adventure kit and the stars and ribbon are from the Little Monkeys Wild West kit, both from The Creative Cottage! These two kits have got to be my faves to date! I don't know what it is but I'm warming more and more to 'boy' type cards. I'm entering my card into the challenge at Totally Papercrafts which is 'Clean & Simple'.

Why not pop over to the blog to see the other girls DT cards, they're all so different! And there's a super prize of 2 digi kits from The Creative Cottage for one lucky winner, all you have to do is enter your card! Hope you can join us! Thanks so much for popping by today!
