"For The Kids" at Crafty Time Challenges

Good morning to you all.  Where does the time go?  Friday already! Our theme  at Crafty Time Challenges this month is "For The Kids"and the sponsor for this  challenge is Fabrika Fantasy . The image I am using is a pre-coloured one, Pirate Parrot.

My Card

6" square card base - Papermania card stock
red & blue papers - from stash
patterned paper -Caribbean fromThe Colour Wheel Company (ancient stash!)
"Lifebelt" - made from SB Circle dies
sentiment - computer generated
bakers twine and gems - from stash

 I thought this backing paper was a little like the netting on a shop and I could just visualise my pirate climbing up it.  Hopefully the die cut circles give the impression of a life belt.

We would love you to join us in our  challenge so that we can go out with a bang!!  Hop across to the blog and see the great inspiration from the DT.  There will also be more inspiration on the 14th and 27th of the month so remember to check back.

We have had a couple of beautiful days here and on Wednesday John and I had an "away day".  We took ourselves off to Henley on Thames, visited the National Trust property Greys Court and had lunch out. We need to do it more often! The sun is shining again right now so let's hope it signals another good day.  I do love spring!

Well I hope you are well and enjoying life.  Take care!

Hi Christine,
what a super card for a youngster.
I love what you have created here.
The image is fab, and the paper is perfect for the design.
Great idea the lifebelt.
So glad you had a lovely day out the other day.
It sounded wonderful.
We need to get out a bit more, as we seem to be always indoors lately.
Maybe now the weather is spring like we should go for a day out too.
So thanks for reminding me that's what we should do.
Love and biggest hugs from my house to yours.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Christine
I find kids cards quite difficult but you have done a perfect job here.
Glad you and John managed an outing. Hopefully the weather is moving in the right direction enabling more trips out.
