Teen skater

Hello, thanks for stopping by. It's been a lovely day here so I did get some washing done. Our daughter called in late afternoon and then stayed on to eat with us. I roasted a split chicken marinated with coriander and lime. I never liked coriander, but have become used to the taste and quite enjoy it now. A friend lent me her DVD series of "Bones" and I sat and watched about 4 episodes. I didn't realise they have been going for 6 years, so there are quite a lot of discs to get through. Hope she doesn't want them back in too much of a hurry!
I sat down about 9.30 p.m. to start thinking about what I wanted to make today and here is what I came up with.
The basecard is SU Chocolate Chip cardstock. I used two different spotted papers from My Mind's Eye and then cut a reverse wonky rectangle in SU Tempting Turquoise. The sentiment was inked with a Marvy Marker and stamped onto white card and punched out. The image is another digi from Anne Bodhill and coloured with different shades of blue and brown Copic Markers. To finish it off I added a large brown button and added some blue and white twine. I did the inside of the card to match but added a bit of white card as well to write birthday greetings on.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Make It Monday - #81 - Anything Goes
Crafting When We Can - Challenge #14 - One for the Boys
Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog - Seeing Spots!
2 Sisters Challenge - Challenge 83 - Spots & Dots
Well had better be off.
Take Care,

Oops, the bit of twine is not sitting quite right in the pic, didn't have time to rescan. Sorry!
