Another Krista Smith card

Hello everyone! I trust that you all had a wonderful holiday weekend, if you live in the U.S. and a great regular weekend if you don't. My nephew and his wife had a cookout for family at their house with hamburgers, hot dogs, all the sides and plenty of sweets.  It was fun and the food was great.

I also spent some time crafting and taking photos of some of my recent projects so I can start posting them here.  I know it's been quite a while since I posted regularly but I'm going to try my best to keep them coming, for a while at least.

The adorable digi I used on my card for today is by Krista Smith of Saturated Canary (that was a big surprise, right?) called Sport Guy.  I think he's just as cute as can be and was a lot of fun to color.

With the red, white and blue color scheme, I thought this was a good choice to post just after Memorial Day.

I just love the expression on this little guy's face. He looks to be concentrating really hard on making that basket, with his little tongue sticking out! Funny thing is, I do that when I'm coloring so while I was bringing this cutie to life, I must have had an identical expression! LOL!

My grandson plays sports but I don't think basketball is really one in his repertoire. I'm trying to convince Krista to draw a boy and girl performing martial arts as both my grandchildren take classes.

Below is the inside of the card.  I always like to decorate the inside too. I think it just makes it look more professional and complete than having the plain unadorned cardstock showing and it makes the cards sturdier for standing on display for long periods of time. That's just my personal preference though. 


Coordinations Cardstock - Blue and White
DCWV Summer Dream Stack - Patterned Cardstock
Red Ribbon- from Michael's
Alphabet Stickers - from my stash
#1 stamp - Inkadinkado
Quick Quotes Powderpuff chalk ink - Marachino Cherry

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Outlawz Twisted Thursday - Anything Goes with a Sports Theme.
Others to be determined

I hope you enjoyed this little card.  Thanks so much for stopping in today.  I hope you have a great week! I'll be back tomorrow with a bookmark that I'm entering in the Saturated Canary Challenge so I hope you'll visit again to see it.  As always, your comments are very much appreciated.  Until next time...

Happy Crafting!
