Five Challenges!

Hi everyone, I'm in confession mode this morning, so here goes....My name is Chrissie and I'm a Mo-aholic!
I think this could well become a real word, as looking around all my favourite blogs I'm certainly not the only one who's well and truly addicted. When I saw this one called 'Sam in Trouble' I just couldn't resist. He reminds me so much of my boys when they were small and had gotten into mischief! Of course, while I was there it would have been rude to purchase just one image, so no doubt you'll all be seeing a few more in the very near future lol! Anyway, onto the card....
I'm entering this into FIVE challenges today (can't believe I managed this!)
Mo's challenge blog, which this week is a sketch, actually it was a great sketch and perfect for male cards as it's quite minimal.
Passion for Promarkers another sketch but the same as my card, so!
Creative Inspirations their theme was New or Neglected - the image is brand new!
La La Land Crafts with a theme of Getting Puchy - I've used my photo corner punch!
and finally Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Lotsa Circles (well, I've used one big one!)

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning 'Sam in Trouble'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers and Distress Inks
* Papers - My Minds Eye 'Wild Asparagus'
* Corner Punch - EK Success 'Photo Corners'
* Nesties - 'Standard Circles' and 'Fancy Tags'
* Everything else from my stash.

I seem to have had one of those weekends where I was running on the spot. No matter how hard I tried to get some cards finished things conspired against me. Now that I've completed this one I have another two partially done, which I'll (hopefully) get posted within the next day or two. I also need to get some blog hopping done and leave comments on challenge entries for Sketch & Stash and Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog (see how behind I am, I told you I had one of those weekends!)
Thanks so much to everyone who's visited and left comments, I'll be returning your visits very soon, I promise!
