Cards for Men #18 meets Sketch Saturday #118

I always seem to post 2 in a row - I think its because I work on a Thursday and Friday so have to get all my cards done by Wednesday lol! Anyway, this offering is for this week Cards for Men with the theme "Long Summer Days" and the fab sketch from Sketch Saturday. The lovely summery image is LOTV Deckchair Dreaming and I have to admit he is a die-cut! The papers are Papermania's Hampstead as well as the brad and gems. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz Adage Tickets. Thanks for visiting!

Pollycraft Monday Challenge #56 - Photo Inspiration

Good Morning! Where does the weekend go? Up here in Scotland the school's go back a week on Wednesday so once the boys go back I should have a bit more crafty time on my hands lol! Anyway, this week's Pollycraft Monday Challenge is based on the above Photo Inspiration - you can choose the colours, or the shapes, mix some or use them all!!! Pop over to the challenge blog to see this week's fantastic prize!

I managed to use nearly all the colours and the shapes for my card! The image is of course the fab "Critters Ship" from the Critters and Cogs range as is the sentiment. The rest of the card is some sticky stars and a diecut earth which I found in my stash. The alien is actually attached to the card with a spring which allows him to move in space!! Thanks for looking!
