Ladybug Crafts Challenge – Something for the Boys &/or Use Your Dies

Hello, how are you keeping?

So it's June already, (Really? Are you sure?) and it is time for a new Ladybug Crafts Challenge  and our theme this month is Something for the Boys &/or Use Your Dies!

Well I chose to do both and I used an image from the LOTV sketch pad ‘Vintage Boys Set 1’ that I got for Christmas! I love this little golfer, he looks so determined marching down the fairway, maybe he hit the ball into the water!! I coloured him with my Spectrum Noir markers and pencils and thought I would die-cut him to make him look like he’s on a golf ball! I know, I know!!! Give a girl a break would ya!!! J

Stamps: sentiment from LOTV ‘Pretty Grungy – Good Times’ set – Do-Crafts Golfing accessories (as ancient as the hills)
Dies: Tonic ‘Nesting Circles & ‘Happy Birthday Sentiment Set’ (just outside frame) – Memory Box ‘Puffy Clouds’
Paper/Card: LOTV ‘Country Gent’ - Kraft
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers and pencils
Others: Charm from The Hobby House (coloured with a SN marker)
Hopeless Hand drawings: Golf Tee!

Have a wander over to the Ladybug Crafts blog here and play along!

Thanks so much for looking and enjoy your day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
