Be a good sport

 Morning all.  It's my turn to pick the subject for this month over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge.  I have chosen 'Something Sporty' as my theme.  Predictably, as it's sport, I have chosen Cricket for my card.  We start the ladies softball cricket matches next week and the juniors are already playing their matches. 

In choosing Cricket I also managed to do a bit of stash busting.  I've had these papers and decoupage sheets for donkey's years.  It's so satisfying to be able to come up with an idea for your old stash.  I really need to try harder and get my craft room in order - like that's ever going to happen!

OK, I really need you to join in the fun as I have to pick the winners for this month.  Besides, we have a lovely new DT member and she's a fabulous talent.  Pop over and check out all of the lovely ladies.  You won't be disappointed.  

Right, I'm off to plan next weeks junior coaching session for the under 11 cricketers.  Hope to see your work soon.

Thanks for reading.

  2. A fabulous card Dawn love your background papers and topper

  3. What an eye-catching, terrific card. Cricket, while not unknown, isn't very common here in Canada, so it's extra fun for me to see a card featuring this splendid sport from the other side of the pond.
