DT CARD Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #106

Hello everyone and thankyou for stopping by.  It's Saturday so that means another challenge at SCSC, HUGE thanks to all of you that took part in last weeks Oriental theme.

This week we are celebrating the launch of more Secret Crafter stamps - this time purely available in digital format from the Secret Crafter shop.

The first is called "Christmas Angel"

and the second one - "Christmas Sledging"

aren't they just superb.  I've not yet had chance to play with them and I'm itching to!!!
To celebrate their release, our theme this week is
" M A N G A "

So we want to see all your manga style images on your creations.  Here's my effort using one of the Secret Crafters own range of rubber stamps.
This image, "Shy Mollie" is also available in digital format HERE.   I've used BG papers from the SC shop and BoBunny paper.  The cardstock and photocorner is from my stash.  The colouring medium used is copics and promarkers also from the SC shop.

Please check out the challenge blog and all the wonderful creations by my lovely teamies HERE.  We can't wait to see what you come up with.
I'm gonna chill out now for the rest of the weekend after a pretty stressful week.  Pete, my husband was involved in an RTA involving four cars on the M4 on Thursday, writing the car off!  An articulated lorry coming up behind them all managed to swerve into a gap in the next lane and stop - miraculously hitting no one!!  Everyone managed luckily to walk away from the incident and Pete, though a bit shaken is home now with just whiplash.  The police say guardian angels must've been watching over all those involved that day!!!!
Thankyou for the kind words of support I've received from those of you that knew, it meant a lot!!  Enjoy your weekend everyone and take care - particularly if driving!!!!!!!!!!

Wonderful card and can't believe you remembered with such a horrid day Thursday.
