Simon Skateboarder


Thanks for all your kind comments and wishes regarding my noisy neighbour, it was very much appreciated and as quite a few people have complained, the powers to be are now dealing with them.  It was so lovely to see some sunshine at the weekend, that we went to Bodiam Castle -  and although H & I had been there a couple of years ago, when he dressed up as a knight, either Alan and Whisper had not, we decided to take Whisper off of her lead, so we crossed the bridge walk along the riverbank, a gun shot went off and Whisper took off like a greyhound, with H is hot pursuit, but he couldn't catch her before she hit the road - fortunately somebody else caught her !!

Today's image is one that i treated myself to, from  The Hobby House, as it was in the sale : Mo Manning - 'Simon', i so want those Dienamics Pierced Rectangles, but as i can't get hold of them at the moment, I decided to use my : Stampin Up - 'Mat and Piercing Tool' and did it myself, the papers are: Doodlebug - 'Boys Only', sentiment is: Woodware - 'Boys', stamped on: Whiff Of Joy - 'Arrows Metal Die', the skateboard is a : 'Sizzix Thin Cut', twine and buttons from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

The Hobby House - where the Challenge is 'Buttons' - the stamp is the product, i've used

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 249 is 'Sports'

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'Be Inspired by a Song, Book or Film' - i've gone for 'The Skateboard Kid (1993) and 'The Skateboard Kid 2' (1995)
