YNS Challenge #19: Rock Star Fhinn

Hey everyone!

This morning I'd like to share with you my DT card for Your Next Stamp Challenges.  It's Amy's turn to set the theme for Challenge #19 and she has chosen... PATTERNED / PRINTED RIBBON!

I have used my Rock Star Fhinn stamp to create my card and followed an old Mojo Monday sketch (#136).  I really, really wanted to make another 'male' card, as I'm planning to have a table at our dd's school summer fayre this coming Saturday (to raise money for the school and also for the British Scoliosis Research Foundation), and I have a really pathetic pile (if you can call it a 'pile'!) of cards suitable for males!  So this posed rather a problem when finding some 'male' printed/patterned ribbon, but after a bit of a route around, I found the only striped piece of ribbon I own (and luckily it's not pink, LOL!).

I also want to let you know that there is a SALE on right now at Your Next Stamp!  Karen is retiring some of the original stamp sets and so has reduced them by 35% - WOW!! But you better be quick to bag a bargain, as once these sets are gone, they won't be coming back ... ever!!  Karen has also introduced a fun "Mystery Stamp Package" to the store for only $4.00 - click here to view the details!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Creative Craft Challenge - Stamp it Up
2. One Stop Craft Week 85 - One for the Boys
3. Magical Crafts Challenge #17 - Something for a Male / Father's Day

I'm feeling pretty rotten today - dd has her appointment to see the paediatric neurologist this afternoon (which we're obviously very concerned about), plus my GP diagnosed me with labyrinthitis yesterday!!  As the room is literally spinning (I feel drunk without being drunk!), I have been advised not to drive, and so it's going to be a bit of a logistical nightmare this afternoon as hubby's a school teacher and his school won't allow him any time off!  Just hope I can focus enough to take in what the specialist has to say, LOL!  So if you see wonky cards/piccies on my blog in the next week or so, you'll know the reason why! ;o)

Do pop on over to YNS Challenges and check out what the rest of Starlets have created.

Thanks for dropping by!
