Cupcake craft challenge #113 – DT card

Hello again, I promised you I would be back didn’t I!  I’m sharing my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week’s theme has been set by the lovely Shelly and she has chosen “boys and their toys”, so we want to see lots of cars, bikes etc this week.  I have chosen a fun image by Mo Manning to use on my card (and will stash it away until my son’s birthday in November as it is him down to a T!).  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 113 - boys and their toys

The only thing I don’t like about this card is the rub-on I used looks really crappy in the photos – although it doesn’t look so bad IRL.  The image is so fantastic and as I mentioned this is how my son looks pretty much all of the time :)

Our sponsor this week is the ribbon girl and the lucky winner will receive a ribbon bundle (more details on the challenge blog).

Don’t forget we also have our cupcake madness draw.  For this month we have Lili of the Valley as our sponsor and one lucky winner will receive 3 stamps of their choice.  To be in with a chance of winning you must enter at least 2 of our challenges during October – easy right?


My DT teamies have once again pulled out all the stops and created some amazing samples for your inspiration.  Please pop over to the challenge blog and take a look, you won’t be disappointed.  We always appreciate the support and lovely comments you leave for us. 

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

OSAAT challenge – embellish it

Paper sundaes challenge – for someone little

Anything goes challenge – ribbons

Papertake challenge – 3 of a kind (3 papers)

Digi doodle challenge – these are my peeps

Mo’s digital pencil challenge – sketch

Raise the bar challenge – get a hobby (my son’s hobby is playing on his x-box)

CES challenge – make a male themed birthday card

Our creative corner challenge – at least 3 embellishments (ribbon, pearls, stars)

Sweet stampin’ challenge – ribbon

Wee memories challenge – celebrate good times (birthday)

Cards for men challenge – happy birthday

Lexi’s creations challenge - birthdays

Ok so that’s me done for today.  I hope you will be able to join in with our challenge this week – I can’t wait to see what you create.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.

Love MO's images. And the truth - some times I also look like that (despite the fact I'm not a boy ;-)

The rub-on - don't mind, you can never see the truth in the photos. The sentiment in the star is just great
