Challenge #61 at Crafting from the Heart

It's been a busy few days with celebrating our granddaughter's 7th birthday at the Hello Kitty Cafe on Friday night and then our 40th Wedding Anniversary yesterday. The kids got together and organised a party for us and also paid for us to stay overnight at the venue where we dined together and they alsoarranged breakfast at the hotel as well this morning. Our DIL swapped her working day so I didn't have to babysit Isaac today, so it's been a relaxing day and I managed to do some colouring for DT images coming up over the next couple of weeks. Hubby was generous and bought me two rings as he knows purple is my favourite colour. He gave me an amethyst ring in the morning and I was just a tad disappointed that he hadn't held to tradition and bought me a ruby one and then at the party he surprised me with a ruby ring as well. It's silver not gold but has 4 large ruby stones, a knuckle duster, lol. I'm getting used to it, but it's a ring I won't wear all the time.
Well I had better move on to the challenge starting today at Crafting from the Heart. It's Anything Goes as usual and our sponsor this week is Karleigh Sue Digis

Hey There ~ Challenge #15 at Get Creative Challenges

It's time for a new challenge at Get Creative Challenges and this time we are asking you to create using an Ingredients Challenge. The requirements are to use - 1 printed paper, 1 fibre and 1 sticker. And yep, that means I've raided my large stash of stickers and embellishments twice this week. I was so pleased to find this basketball and hoop as I had decided to colour the boys clothes in with a stripe of colour down the side to make it look more like a team uniform. I think the image and sticker go well together.
Our sponsor this week is Limited Runs and I chose this fab boy image with his cute freckles!
Here is my card......

Recipe:
SU Baked Brown Sugar cardstock for the basecard
SU Bashful Blue cardstock for the matte
White cardstock from stash for the image and sentiment
DP is from Kaisercraft 61/2x61/2 paper pad ~ Basecoat
Image is from Limited Runs ~ Jacob with free sentiment
Sentiment is from Paper Smooches - Sentiment Sampler
Basketball and Hoop sticker from stash
String from stash

I've just popped in to edit my post and update the info, came back from camp with a sore back and also have had my grandson here today. It's his 4th birthday today, so he came in his new lego pj's that his other Mama bought and I changed him into his clothes which included a new long sleeved t-shirt from his Uncle and Aunty and he has been playing with the "Gup" toy which we bought him (It's from one of his favourite shows - Octonauts!)
So....... please come and join in the challenge at Get Creative this time around. My fellow DT and I are looking forward to seeing your creations!!!
