Not As Old As It Looks!

Friday, 27 July 2012

Good morning everyone!
And a beautiful morning it is too - at long last!  We've had lot's of rain and cloud here in Northern Ireland while everyone else, it seems, was getting lovely weather - no fair!!  Pity I can't enjoy the sun today as I'm stuck in work :(

But anyway, today is Friday, so that means there's a 50% chance of there being a new challenge on the Alphabet Challenge Blog and today we're in luck!!
We're up to M and the lovely Shaz chose the theme of...

M for Men Only!

Always a tough theme so I made my card early - so although my card for today is for Father's Day, it was given to my dad on the actual day! lol!

Here it is:


The fun image is from the fabulous Bugaboo and is called Consciousness.  He's coloured with the following copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20.  Clothes: B39,37,34,16,14,12.  Cup: Y08,06,02 Hair: C9,7,5,3.  I used a clear Sakura glaze pen on the mug and his glasses.


The papers are Basic Grey Lime Rickey.  The sentiment is by Lili of the valley from the postage sentiments sent.  The buttons are from my stash.


The inside uses the same papers and the sentiment that came with the image.


So go to the Alphabet Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the design teams fab work and have a go yourself!
