Yellow for sunshiny summer days

Morning all, no exam today so I get to play on the internet whilst Andrew's teacher is here, so I thought I'd ttry and put a post up. i made this card yesturday while Andrew was doing his maths exam which he thinks he did quite well in but not good enough by his standards as he won't have top marks as he ran out of time and didn't answer 3 questions fully but as long as he did his best I'm not really bothered what the marks are, and I know he will have done his best.

My card is a bit different for me , for some reason maybe it's all this revision I am helping Andrew with testing him etc I think its rewired some bits of my head and I keep using colours I wouldn't normally use and colours I would definitely not use for boys and mens cards too. They do say variety is the spice of life so here goes, let me know if you think I need a brain transplant???

My card will be entered for the following challenges in no particular order:-

Tellons Place-use a tag(small but definitely a tag)
Penny's challenge- 1 ribbon(hope my woven strip counts, it was in my ribbon bag), 2 patterned papers and 3 embellishments
Thursday Treehouse-masculine( didn't make this card with this challenge in mind, have to be honest, but when a card fits the challenge should be entered  is what I say. Hope Treehouse agree)
Cupcake craft challenge-buttons
The Pink Elephant-buttons, yellow and Designer papers
High Hopes- absolutely fabby sketch layout
Cards for men-outdoors
Klsns-1 ribbon(again hope my woven strip counts),2 designer papers and 3 embellishments
Crafty Catz- card and a tag
Secret saturday crafter- 3 embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image
Going grey with scrap creations-use an animal, sorry mine with a wee boy too but when they are feeling that way inclined they can be wittle animals too can't they?

This is so cute! I love the monochromatic theme! Thanks for playing this week at KL Stampin n Scrappin! Have a great weekend! :)

Kelly - KL Stampin N Scrappin said...

I say your woven strip definitely qualifies. :) I create the card and then find challenges later that it qualifies for too. I say, "why not." GREAT job! Thanks for joining us at KL Stampin N Scrappin DT blog for Jodi's challenge this week.
