Packed again!

Only a mere 460 miles this week! Life is currently settling into a bit of a routine - home Thursday night after another really nice few days (and lucky again with the weather!), Friday washing day, Saturday a chill out day watching the men's County team and today ironed and packed up ready to go for the road trip down to the South coast tomorrow!
Am not sure though if we will be as lucky with the weather for the first Celebration match of the week on Tuesday but fingers crossed. The Club members who request the Bowls England team visit put so much effort into their hospitality and it's a damn shame when the weather doesn't play nicely!
So here is Mo's Video Boy, coloured with Promarkers and made into a card for a teenager. Just a basic layout with bold colours!

The papers are from a couple of sources - the striped was from a 12 x 12 sheet previously never used and the other background paper was one of 3 sheets left in a tattered old pad where the front has well gone to the bin so no idea whose it is!
All mounted onto a piece of textured card which I thought was a real odd colour but it matches OK!
The sentiment is a stamp picked up in a bargain bucket, inked in Faded Jeans DI.
The stars were just punched out from the offcuts. Inside decorated to match.

I love this MM image Viv which you have made a great job of colouring and the papers go with it beautifully, and that nice sized sentiment and the stars finish it perfectly. Hope your south coast visits go well. x

A perfect image and design for a teenager. If you ask me they're the trickiest age group to make cards for, but this is youthful and cool.
