Make It Sporty!

Hello again. Please forgive me if I sound a little bleary-eyed, for Daylight Savings started today and I lost an hour of sleep. But if anything could get me springing out of bed this morning, it's announcing that it's time for our second challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox!

(okay, so I didn't exactly spring - but I did get up and make coffee and turn the computer on with a minimum of grumbling.)

As mentioned earlier, this Challenge blog aims to not only  inspire you, but also take you on a bit of a journey of typical Aussie life. So as the highlight on most sport fans' agendas this weekend is the Rugby League Grand Final, the theme for our challenge this fortnight is:


Now I hunted high and low for a stamp to suit this challenge - and finally settled on 'Rugby Justin' from The Stamping Boutique, and here he is in all his glory on my card.

Copics used:
Uniform: R22, R27, R29, YG63, YG67, C3, C5
Skin: E000, E00, E11
Hair: E31, E35
Ball: E25 Grass: YG03
Digi Stamp: The Stamping Boutique "Rugby Justin"

Now I have to say that as my two favourite Copic colours at the moment are red and green, I coloured Justin in without realising that he is now actually dressed in the uniform of the South Sydney Rabbitohs, the team co-owned by actor Russell Crowe. Now I am not a bunnies fan (boo! hiss!), so this was not intentional - nor was the striking resemblance to a young Freddie Krugur of Nightmare On Elm Street fame - as my husband pointed out to me afterwards.

I really hope you are able to join us in Challenge #2 at The Squirrel & The Fox and to welcome our new DT members. We have a full team now (hoorah!) and the ladies have done a fabulous job on their first challenge task.

Also entered into the following challenges:

Until next time,

PS - Go The Warriors!!!
