Light that lamp !

I needed an ice hockey player for an ice hockey mad friend turning 65.  Cue Kenny K.  Just what I had in mind.  I'm hoping I got the Wightlink Raiders colours right - or it will be a puck in the eye for me !

Challenge blog entries:

Anything goes at Kenny K's (sorry no love twist for me)
Seeing red at Creative Corner
Brads at Fab'n'Funky
Colour B at Allsorts(Black obviously)

Happy crafting !

Anything goes at In the Pink
Use a fairy at Crafty Catz
Recycle at Oldie but a Goodie (background pink shiny paper is from an old Tiffany calendar)

One of my team members is expecting a baby.  She call's her bump Baby Bean.  This does make me smile.
Anyway, it seems to have become a small tradition that I make leaving cards.  So here's the latest.
I think I'm starting to get a grip with hair colouring.  Skin tones need perfecting next.

The sketch is my take on the one over at Sketch Saturday.  Thank you.

And in to the following challenges in addition to the above:
