A card for pleasure - Mikey Shopping!

Hi all

Firstly thank you all so much for your lovely comments about my son, he is doing much better now and getting back to his naughty cheeky little self haha! Secondly, thank you for the well wishes for my operation today, I don't have to be at the hospital until 1.00 so may just have time for some crafting this morning.

It seems like ages since I made a card for "pleasure" and not just a DT card, it is a pleasure creating for a DT but sometimes it is nice just to do something different!



I have made this card using one of the "Mikey" images from Charmed Cards and Crafts which I recently won at Daring Cardmakers! These images are amazing and perfect for lads cards.

I have coloured "Mikey shopping" using promarkers. Papers are a mixture of Basic Grey Lemonade and Papermania. Distressed with Tim Holtz Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap. The brads are Basic Grey Boxer, cirle sentiment created using Word.

For the layout I used a sketch from ages ago which I saved on my PC 9sorry can't remember where from though) and I "lifted" the idea for tag/tile style letters from a card I saw yonks ago but again can't remember where - it must be a sign of old age.

I am entering into the following challenges:

Dottie's World - Fathers Day/masculine
Basic Grey - Colour combo of Turquoise, brown and cream
Cupcake Craft Challenge - One for the boys
Partytime Tuesday - Birthday
Totally Gorjuss - For the boys!
Sir Stampalot - Punch it (the 3 circles with nesties)
