Hockey for Fun

Well away again from my blog for a week or more as life does get in the way sometimes,with appointments, hubby having a bad week  and family visits.  Hopefully things will go smoother this week and I will be able to get caught up with making comments and maybe getting a few more cards made.

The card for to-day is a digital image from Kenny K (always enjoy his images.)  Most hockey players that play on local men's hockey teams often wish they had made it to the big leagues.  So when I was trying to figure out what to put on the front of the card beside the image, I noticed a note pad on my desk that had these very light images in the background and decided that would be the perfect backdrop! So I placed that behind the digital image on a slant and then placed the sentiment at the top and the bottom on the same slant. Sentiments from Me and My Big Ideas.  Stars from my stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Clear It Out Anything goes / stash AG March
Cards Galore Anything Goes March
Crafting By Design Anything Goes March

This is Fantastic Jackie and the image in the background is fantastic and sets off the card perfectly. Perfect for a Boy/Man..loz

What a clever use of your note pad! Fab male card, I like his tough expression, lol. Thanks for popping in to my blog. I once had 13 pens all run out around the same time and had them refilled at the craft shop and they overfilled every one of them. I was so frustrated and ruined lots of images. Filling your own is a much better option.
