Stamp with fun #95 – DT card

Good morning everyone, I’m here to share my DT card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge.  This week’s theme is “blue & brown” which in my mind automatically means a male card to me.  As luck would have it I needed a card for my brother-in-law so I decided to combine the two!  I used a cute image from Pollycraft called ‘Maurice – ready for business’ and obviously coloured him with my promarkers.  Here is my card:

SWF #95 - blue & brown

SWF #95 - blue & brown (close up)

Now Maurice doesn’t look anything like my B-I-L but I just thought he was a really cute image and perfect for those difficult men cards!  For once I’m actually quite happy with my colouring on this card (which makes a change lol!). 

We have a sponsor this week for our challenge – One Stop Card Crafts and the lucky winner will receive a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.

I actually followed the sketch over at Moving along with the times challenge but I didn’t realise there was an additional option of flowers – oh well! 

I’m off to physiotherapy again this morning and although my back is still painful it is easing so hopefully I will be whizzing around again in no time!  I’ll be back later with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
