Crafty Downloads - September Challenge - Sports & Leisure

It's a new month and a new challenge over on Crafty Downloads! For September, the challenge is:

Sports and Leisure

It's really easy to enter the Crafty Downloads monthly challenges - you simply follow the theme and use a Crafty Download image (you can find one here for free!) and anything else you want! The challenge is also open for a month, so plenty of time to get creating! To enter, leave a comment on the relevant post on the challenge blog and I can then pop by and visit you to see your creations!
My only dilemma this month was which image to use! In the end I decided on Soccer Star Thomas as I had just printed off the perfect backing papers for a little boy! The papers have been designed by Funky Hand for Craft4Charity (Boys and Girls collection) - you can only buy the cd from the charity. Lots of other designers contributed but I do like the Funky Hand papers!

I've simply layered up the papers (printed off to A5 size), inked and then doodled a border around the edges. The sentiment is handwritten. Thomas has been coloured with watercolour pencils and he was a joy to colour - really easy! I do like it when a card is easy to make!

Hope you can join in with the September challenge - would love to see your creations!
