Cute Card Thursday - It's a Man's World



Here is my card for the new challenge on Cute Card Thursday which is men's cards this week. I used a Penny Black dog image from one of their new sets of clear stamp sets and coloured him in with pencils. I love brown and blue for men's cards so I used this as the colour theme and arranged various papers, ribbon, brads and doodling around the image. I used a Red Hot Bed 'good luck' message and wrote 'in your new job' with my own fair hand!

I've missed a few challenges these past few weeks because I just haven't had the time with one thing or the other but I seem to be getting the time to take part a little more now.

I was wondering if anyone else crafts under the same conditions as me. I sit on the sofa with a few choice item around me and lean on one of Dylan's books, today it was Postman Pat. Whilst crafting I have various cars and trains plonked on top of my work and whenever I need to do anything that requires a steady hand he seems to come and lean on me! I do envy those of you who can go to a nice quiet craft place without such interruptions, but I suppose the added dents to the card produced from Dylan's toys add a bit of personal character! :0)
