New goodies #1 - Computer Fun

Yesterday I made the 120 mile trip up the A1 to just outside of Leeds to visit the Lili of the Valley's open day and bought myself a few new goodies (few she says! I spent a fair amount and ended up with 10 new stamps, plus one more in the goodie bag, a pad of patterned paper, some kraft card blanks, loads of paper flowers and a load of Memory Box & La-La Land Crafts dies). Even though it was a 2 1/2 hour journey away I was so glad we went and I was able to see the stamps in the flesh and on their gorgeous display cards!

Anyway here's one of my newbies - Computer Fun, perfect for a boy's card! This one is for Inkspirational's Challenge #9 for the sketch and for Friday MashUp's Challenge #99 to use Pool Party, Real Red, So Saffron  and a neutral, so I picked Chocolate Chip. I don't do baby cards until they're necessary (don't do babies either!), so I made a kid's card instead (can handle those! LOL).


And here's my card.


Recipe:

Stamps: Computer Fun from Lili of the Valley, Star Prints, Boy Basics: Game On both from PTI

Papers: So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Whisper White all from SU

Inks: So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Pool Party all from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers

Accessories: Chocolate Chip Twill (Retired) from SU, Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug

And that's all for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
