Good Morning
Another overcast day here.  This weekend is gonna be a huge weekend with my other half competing in the 96km Kokoda Challenge down the coast.  He said this is gonna be the 3rd and final time his doing it. ( This is a fund raising event to help our young ppl who've had a difficult life and showing them about team work and co-operation and give them the confidence to better themselves.)  The aim is not only to complete the course in the time give but beat the clock as well.  Their aim for this year is 20hrs.  Last years winning team did it in just over 10 hrs.  How good is that.  I get to do support again this year which is just as huge in a different way, making sure your at the right checkpoint when they come in to refuel and repack their rations to get on the way.
No walk in the park for this challenge.  From start to finish we get to track the teams on Google Earth and see where their at.  Too bad I don't get to see that happening since I'll be out on the road at various checkpoints.  Here's a link to anyone whose interested about the challenge

Anyway back to this card I made for the challenge over at  ,  in the Customer Gallery section,  I use LaLa Land Stamp, coloured it in Copic Markers, Spica pen is give the hair a bit of highlighting,  Spellbinders Shapeabilities for the embellishments, and Candi brads to finish it off.

Have a gr8 day
