Friday DT and GDT cards

It's Friday once again and her is my GDT card for Crafts 4 Eternity where the challenge this week, along with the great sketch, is a sport theme and use an arrow. Now my first thought was an archer but I didn't have one of those. I'm thinking Kevin Costner as Robin Hood, now, yummy. I did find this golfer lurking in my stash of images, no idea what make he is as he was a gift. Papers are K&Co Hopscotch and I made one of the strips an arrow, clever, huh! The embellie is part of a golfing set I bought in America and the colour goes perfectly with these papers. The corner stickers are from an old pack from Lakeland. There are so many challenges wanting male cards so hope to see you joining in this week.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges who all want male cards this week, Totally Gorjuss, Stamptacular, Crafty Cardmakers, Cupcake, Incy Wincy, Pear Tree Designs, Creative Inspirations, Polka Doodles. Our Creative Corner's challenges is Gotcha cornered.

This week at Winter Wonderland our challenge is a festive tree. I found this image in my Christmas stash box which was another RAK. I think this one came from Christine in Canada as the teddy had a stars and stripes flag. I added white glitter flocking to Santa's beard and fur and the tag went over the flag. The papers are some old ones as are the little tree stickers. I added a Christmas tree brad to the flower so that's 5 festive trees. The number of entries is growing every week now so more and more of you are seeing the benefit of getting ahead with those Christmas cards. This week's fab prize is 3 digis from Delicious Doodles so get creating.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges
The Corrosive Challenge sketch
Paper Play Something old (that's most of this card!)
One Stitch at a Time Celebrations
Bah Humbug Child's Christmas

It has been another gloomy and cool day here and tomorrow we are promised a Northerly wind and an even cooler day. I'm off to see Snow White on Ice at the theatre tomorrow night. Seems most appropriate given the weather. Enjoy your weekend.

You have made 2 lovely cards Marianne. Really like how you have used a tree brad for your flower and all your little additions help to make up for poor Santa's rather bare looking branches LOL!
