Double Trouble

Evening Folks
Hope you are well and have had a good weekend.
Had a nice day out today with my Mum.  We went to the Sincerely Yours paper craft show at Lincoln.  I have never been before so was not sure what to expect.  Obviously, it is a lot smaller than the likes of Ally Pally or the NEC but enjoyable none the less.  Lots of lovely goodies to look at.  I did get some new stash including some memory box dies that I just fell in love with, more card candy, stamps and card blanks.  I also came away with 14, yes 14, reels of double sided tape.  It was such a bargain and I use so much of it lol.

Anyway, I am now nursing some sore feet so thought I would post these two cards for you.  This is another request from my sister - this time for her boys to give to their twin cousins for their birthday.

The stamp is from Lily of the Valley and is just perfect for all those young men out there who love gaming.  The images were coloured in promarkers and matted onto kraft card.  A bit of distress ink and some faux stitching added to the edges.  The papers were from Wild Rose Studio and Echo Park.  The sentiments were stamped and heat embossed and given the same treatment on the edges as the image.  I added some ribbon, card candy and buttons to finish the card.  Simple embellishments but boys don't want anything too fussy.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Forever Friends - Bingo (ribbon, buttons, blue)
Crafty Ribbons - Childrens birthday
I Love Promarkers - Anything goes
Lilis Little Fairies - Anything goes
Fussy and Fancy - Anything goes
Cards Galore - Anything goes
One Stop - Anything goes
The Squirrel and the Fox - Use a ribbon

Thanks for popping by and for all the lovely comments you leave.  I do read every one.
Take care.
