#9 Orange and Brown

Today we have another new challenge over at HERE COME THE BOYS and the theme is to use orange and brown, and it has to be for a man or boy. Here is my take on this weeks theme.
I would like to enter it into

A Spoonful of Sugar #162 Happy Birthday
Cards For Men # 17 Anything Goes

As you can see I used a great Teddy Bo image for my critter.....he is such a cutie and so easy to colour with my Promarkers. I kept the card layout nice and simple with only a little distress ink ( Vintage Photo) and wore the edges with a distressing tool. The card candy dots were made using a circle punch from Hobby Crafts own range. The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You.
Hope you like it.... hop on over to HERE COME THE BOYS  to see what lovely creations the rest of the DT have done.

#8 Critters

Today is a new challenge over at HERE COME THE BOYS

So here is my DT card. The theme this week is Critters, anything to do with slugs, snails and puppy dog tails. But remember the card/ creation has to be for a man or boy.
I would like to enter into these challenges

Passion for Promarkers #111 Hugs nad Kisses
Stampalot August Challenge # Whatever you fancy
Fab N Funky #84 Friendship
Crafts and Me Challenges #46 Anything Goes

I made my card using one of Mo Mannings fantastic images, this "critter" is sooo loved by his boy just like my sons and our dog Bud! I used a little vintage photo distressing around the edges of the backing paper and my sentiment is from Lynnes shop SENTIMENTS 4 YOU. The image is coloured with Promarkers and of course I had to use a bit of string for embellishment.
So hop on over to HERE COME THE BOYS to see what fun ideas the other DT girls have done and don't forget to enter yourself too.
Thanks for looking, hope you like.
