Allsorts Challenge Week 180 - Young at Heart

Good Morning Crafters,

Saturday again and another Allsorts Challenge and this week it is the lovely Tracey who has chosen this weeks theme which is ~

Young At Heart

I think that you agree that this a great challenge with lots of scope to cover a range of topics.
I have decided to show you this card which makes me smile and reminds me of my next door neighbour (he is a lovely man but I hope he doesn't read the blog!!!)

The stamps are from a Creative Expression set which features some fabulous stamps that are all humerous and perfect for golf enthusiasts.  (I apologise I cant remember the name of the stamp set - I will look into it and let you know)
The papers are again from Creative Expressions and is from the foundations collection - these are an excellent A4 sheet and are double sided , very popular in the shop.  I have also included some paper piecing which worked well to emphasise his cap and trousers.  Not sure if he will be able to do anything with that golf club though!  Candy and a little ribbon finish off the layout.  What do you think - does it remind you of anyone?!

Today in the shop we have painting on parchment which my friend Maria Maidment is running (I am sneaking in as a student today so will need to be on my best behaviour.)

I hope that you all enjoy this weeks challenge pop over and have a look at the DT work at Allsorts.  Thankyou to our fabulous sponsors who are

Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps

Many thanks for popping by and please leave a comment.  l I hope that you enjoy a fabulous weekend.
I hope that if you have or are going to the NEC that you have a lovely time and spend lots!!!

Bye for now and take care,

Jo xx

  3. Fabby card Jo, it's always nice to have inspiration for "male" cards. Love those papers, and the layout too.
    I'll be popping in to the shop later (for a sneaky peak at what you're making) so I'll see you then. No need to say "have fun", I know you all will.

  4. Great card Jo and a fab image and sentiment. Hoping to find some Tim Holtz stamps tommorrow but find this event a bit much sometimes. However I shall brave it for what I want. Hope you really enjoy your class today Have a good weekend and glad to see you are on the mend.
