Father's Day Or Something Masculine

Good Morning everyone and a big Happy Friday to you all!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at CardMadFairy's Digi Days.  The theme of the challenge this week is Father's Day or Something Masculine.  I have gone with Something Masculine as you can never have too many male cards and I think none of us like making them too much - we'd all rather be playing with our ribbons, bling and flowers!!

I have used the digi Kevin and coloured him with my Copics  you can buy Kevin here.  For my papers I have used Nitwits Kick in it! The sentiment is computer generated.  The footballs and stars are actually table confetti I have had for so many years - knew it would come in handy one day!!  I have followed the sketch at Sketch 'n Stash for my layout.  For more inspiration please pop over and see the rest of the talented DT over at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch and Stash - Sketch and my stash is my footballs and stars - ancient!!
Pattie's Creations - Father's Day or Something Masculine
Phindy's Place - Father's Day
The Poodles Parlour - Father's Day
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Male Card
Digi Doodle - Male Card

 Kevin reminded me of my son when he was younger his hair was just like that but a lot darker.  He used to play football for the school team but really hated it because he was always in goals.  I used to have a real struggle to get him to the matches because he really didn't want to be in the goals but I think he was in because he was so tall and lanky he could just reach out and stop the balls!

My day at the races was great fun.  We went out for a lovely lunch in Ripon and then went to the races for the evening races.  The racecourse is very pretty and it is such good fun.  I won on the first one but it was each way and he came third so I decided that from then on I would just bet for the winner.  Naturally enough the next two races the one I backed came second!!  So I a didn't win but it was great fun and will certainly go again.

A big welcome to my newest follower and a big thank you!  That's it from me for today, have to catch up on all my housework and your lovely blogs!  See you tomorrow and take care xx

Oh my gosh, I love this!!!! My son is just learning soccer (football). I started him at an indoor soccer place and hopefully will do a rec team in the fall for outdoor! Looking into British soccer camps to help him! As I tell him, Practice makes you better. I like that much better over Practice makes you perfect! :-)
