Fore You!

Sunday, 6 April 2014

 Good morning everyone!

This is an exciting day!  I've just found out that Sky Atlantic are showing the first episode of Game of Thrones series 4 tonight!!  It will be on at 2am to coincide with when it is being aired in the States.  It's a wee bit annoying that it's on in the middle of the night as I have to be away early in the morning so I won't be able to stay up to watch it, but I will record it and have it there to watch as soon as I get home tomorrow instead of having to wait until tomorrow night!!  This is the series where the scenes will be shown that were filmed on my family's land, I don't know which episode it will be in though but I will definitely recognise it as we were allowed on set! :D

So as I calm myself down I will tell you about the new challenges up today on Eclectic Ellapu - 2 challenges running side by side.  The Pink team and the Purple teams challenges are...

One For The Boys

&

Easter!

As I'm on the Pink team here's my card that I made for my Daddy's birthday


I made a twisted easel card, cos I thought it would look good as a wee golf-y flag!


I love this image from Mo's Digital Pencil as it reminds me a lot of my Daddy, he plays golf and he sticks his tongue out like that, all the time! lol!  I coloured him with the following Copics: Skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Clothes;E39,37,35,29. E47,44,43. YG97,95,93,91. Grass;E43,29,G17,14,YG97,95,93. Sky;C4,2,B00,000.


The papers are from Tim Holtz' Retro Grunge pad.  I punched out the triangles with a Stampin' Up punch and stamped them with the matching stamps for the edging.  The sentiment is hand-written.  I die-cut some circles and embossed them with my swiss dots folder and used the back as the front to look like golf balls.  I used a really old and crappy alphabet stamp set to stamp the letters on them after I had affixed them to the card, and made a total hash of it!  But, what's done is done!


And that's my card, make sure you go and see all the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the DT at Eclectic Ellapu and join the Pink team's challenge, I think we can do better than the purple team!! lol!
Go Pinks!!
