A Sketchy Challenge on Cards for Men .....

...... and a DT call too!  Yep, that's right, if you fancy joining myself and the other girls on the DT then this is your chance.  You'll find all the details over on the main post as well as lots more ideas.

The challenge this time is a fab sketch from Mandy and the prize is a 12-pack of promarkers from Letraset.  Please take some time to pop over to see our sponsor and the other team-members because they really are a treat.

I made my card with my youngest son in mind.  He'll be three at the end of March.  The image is a Hanglar & Stanglar stamp which I got as a RAK a long while back.  I've coloured him with Promarkers.  I made a bit of a mess with the trousers but I can live with it.  I'm still learning how to shade and blend.

The cards stock is Bazzill Basics and the DP is October Afternoon (Campfire) which I love.  The brads are Basic Grey - Archaic and the star/no. 3 were cut on my Cricut using the Don Juan cartridge.

I'm quite pleased with my finished card although I did think I might glitter the edges of the star before I give it to Robert.  I'm going to enter it into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine - Birthday card
Creative Card Crew - No Flowers
Top Tip Tuesday - Happy Birthday
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes

Crafty Sentiments - Just For You
Floweret - play/kids birthday
