happy father's day

It's time for another challenge over at Crafts 4 Eternity, where we have:

The Sketch

Plus: use a sport image/theme and add an arrow.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:
Whenever I make a man's card I always want to distress it, but none of the men I make cards for like distressing!! They like nice smooth lines. I can never quite get me head round this! So that fact, together with the fact that it was a sport theme and I was under a bit of pressure last night to make a father's day card to send off today, managed to kill my mojo stone dead. So what follows is a very rushed card which to me I don't like for three reasons.

The three things I don't like are the UK flag paper, the white border strip and the fact that my little sticker letters didn't have a single apostrophe in the set and I am finding that the most hardest to live with! LOL!

The Lili of the Valley image is cute though.

And it was quick to make.

And I used up some of my scraps.

Thank you for looking.

I like your car. I like the UK flag paper. I think it really sets of the image and I'm an American!
Thinks for the inspiration.

Oh gorgeous card Keeley, sweet image and colours. I understand about the white border but I would've ink the edges so it was a bit more shabby to go with the england flag.

It's that time of year isn't it. Means my old man will wake from his dead sleep on the couch bright and early to watch Mexico and Uruguay, hope he stays quiet, lol!! Your image is super cute and as always, I love your colouring. I do understand about your 3 reasons for not loving the card, gosh, no inking, blarg and no apostrohe, that is a sin, lol!! Your awesome colouring makes up for it though!! Welp, thanks so much for playing at Creative Inspirations this week.

Got an idea, Hallowe'en swapsie, what say you?
