West Ham Billy!

Hi, i'm back again today with another sneak peak for the new Pink Cat Studio Sporty Billy set. Not long to wait now Pink Cat fans and this set is released tomorrow! Wow, I think you will also agree that the DT team created some awesome cards yesterday.

Today I am showing you football Billy or should I say soccer Billy for other parts of the world ;-) Billy is dressed in my hubbie's football teams colours claret and blue as he is a supporter of West Ham United.

I pierced the edges of my cardstock using my sewing machine. The dp is from the MME Magnolia stack. The colours couldn't have been anymore perfect. Billy is coloured with Prismacolor pencils using sansodor and paper stumps for blending. My Father-in-law is a huge West Ham supporter so I will probably give him this card for Father's Day.

I have even shown you a picture of player Mark Noble for anyone who has never seen West Ham's kit.


I received the above award from Georgia yesterday. Thank you so much sweetie for thinking of me. Please do go and visit Georgia at her blog... she is one very talented 13 year old!

Don't forget that today there is also a new challenge over a A Spoon Full of Sugar so be sure to go and check this out. They have a fabulous stamp prize this week from our sponsor Nutcrafters.

See you tomorrow when I can show you all the images for this fabulous release! Don't forget to see yesterday's post for the links to the Pink Cat Studio DT team.

Hugs,
