Roller hockey...

Hello everyone :o)  Sorry to have been such a rubbish blogger over the last couple of days.

We had some horrible news on Tuesday - the little kitten who was supposed to be coming to live with us died, in not very nice circumstances, before we even got to meet him.  The boys were so upset, and my heart just wasn't in blogging at all, so I'm afraid I've got a bit behind with commenting on all your lovely blogs.

However, we managed to find someone with a little ginger boy who needed a home... and he's now here, asleep in his little bed, safe and sound :o)  We've called him Boris, he's 8wks old and gorgeous!

So... onto today's card, which is for an order - they wanted something with a 'roller hockey' theme, and I looked and looked, and discovered that roller hockey images just don't exist (someone's going to show me one now...), so I've adapted an ice hockey one from Bugaboo.  It's for a 13yr old, and I'm really hoping this will be ok!

Items Used
Base card - 6" x 8" made from Papermill white hammered card
Digi Stamp - Hockey Nut - Bugaboo Stamps
Colouring - promarkers & flexmarkers
Papers - old ones by Doodlebug
CC Designs Curly-Q border die
MFT dienamics corner die
Gems from my stash

I'm entering my card for the Stella Says Sketch challenge at Catch The Bug.

And here's a little photo of Boris :o)

Hope you all have a lovely evening!

Ahhh that is so sad about your original kitten, and I completely understand why you were all so upset, but your new little addition looks so cute and I detect maybe a little bit of mischief in that face too!

I love your card as well and I think the adaptation from the original image is a really clever idea.

Your card is great - I love the roller amendment!!!

Sorry to hear about your kitten, but it looks like you've got a lovely little boy in Boris. I have a ginger and he is the naughtiest and most lovable baby boy cat I've had. He's so affectionate and seems to fear nothing. Boris looks so adorable. I want to snuggle him. He's gonna be spoilt, I can tell. He's already got someone wrapped around his little paws! LOL

Fab card as well, great image and brilliant how you've adapted the image!
