Faithful Friends

This is my entry for this weeks CD Sunday Challenge, the theme is 'Faithful Friends' and because it's the first challenge of the month the winner will be able to choose a CD of their choice from Ooh La La Creations.

I have used an image from the Ooh La La Creations Faithful Friends CD, this was one of the cards that I made for the Create and Craft Launch of the CD back in April that I never got around to blogging.

The image, papers and sentiment are all from the CD, I have backed everything with dark brown card stock and cut a border with a Fiskars border punch, another CAS design - most of my cards seem to be turning out this way at the moment!

I have decorated the inside of my card using the same layout and papers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The CD Sunday Challenge - Faithful Friends
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Spots and Stripes
Cards for Men Challenge 11 - Dad
Pile It On Challenge 22 - Stripes and/or Plaid
Crafty Creations Challenge 225 - One for the Boys!
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge 261 - Fantastic Fathers
The Perfect Sentiment Challenge 82 - Father's Day or Special Man
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Masculine/Father's Day
Card Crafter's Circle Challenge 77 - Stripe Me Silly!
Songbird Challenge 21 - All creatures great and small

Well, that's it from me for today, I need to do some housework and then back to the hospital with Mum this evening.  Thank you for your company.
