Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and more.

I bought some new stamps at the local stationary shop and just had to play with them. While I was bloghopping a while ago I came across the Scraptacular Sunday Challenge and realised that my card was a perfect fit. So this is the first time EVER I am taking part in a challenge. I haven't even been making cards for that long, so it is kind of cheeky to put myself out there amongst all those talented ladies, but you have to start somewhere.
The papers are by K&Co (I think!) and Bazzil. The image was coloured with Copics and the dress painted with Making Memories glitter glue after it was coloured. It looks very nice IRL.
I fanally scrapped again! When my DD came back from the last Water Polo tour to Durban, she was clutching some photo's and held them out to me saying they were a present for me. My DH's only comment? "Does your mother scrap or what? Other children, bring chocolates home and you bring photo's?" I had to laugh. I have trained them well!
The title says 'One legged wonder' and refers to the fact that she seriously injured her leg less than a week before the tournament and refused to let that stop her from playing. It tells how proud we are of her and how much I admire her perserverance. (The whole story is somewhere in my blog) In spite of the injury she played herself into the Soth African senior Ladies side. Not bad for somebody with one leg!
