*Ronnie Relaxing* and Challenges

I'll be the first to admit that my supply of digi-images is limited and those that I do have on my PC are for the most part, blog challenge prizes.  This is partly because I prefer the process of physically inking up and stamping my choice of images, but to be honest there are so many digi-images online that are free to download, I haven't seen any reason to dip into my purse to purchase any.  Until now that is!
After seeing Emma's charity appeal to raise funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance following the tragic loss of her dad last September,  it would've been mean not to help her achieve her target.    
Although I missed the deadline of 5th May for her challenge, her fundraising is ongoing and she is currently offering 4 Alota Rubberstamps as tempting blog candy.  CLICK HERE for the details.
I did want to show the card I made using her 'Relaxing Ronnie' image and highlight her appeal to any who may have missed it and want to help.  For further details of Emma's YAA appeal CLICK HERE or alternatively click on the image on my sidebar.
I coloured him with Promarkers and used coordinating patterned papers from Papermania Pad - The Big One matted onto card in various brown shades and gold mirri leaving a narrow border each time.   

I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafter's Companion Challenge 9 - Monotone
Stampin' for the Weekend - Card for a Male
Paperplay Challenges - Brown and ?

Hello Max

Wow this is just so cute and adorable. I love your mix and match of papers and what a fabby layout.

I'm hibernating in the craft room away from the mess.

wow Max totally agree with what you said about digis and stamping. I prefer stamping too but digis are good is you need something fast or want to resize.
I love Pollycraft stuff and this image is just fantastic especially as it is being sold for such a good cause.
Love how you have used it. Those papers look fantastic.
