Passion for promarkers #88–DT card

Happy Tuesday everyone.  I hope you are enjoying the half-term holidays so far, although the weather here is typical for the school holidays (very wet and wild).  My boys don’t really mind as they spend most of their days killing various monsters and vampires on the x-box (they are 14 and 16).  Unfortunately I’ve used up all my annual leave so I have to work this week, but on the plus side the roads are very quiet and parking in work is a breeze!! 

So onto the real reason you are here this morning – a card!!  As it’s Tuesday that means we have a brand new challenge over at passion for promarkers challenge.  This week the lovely Sarah has set the theme and she has chosen the dreaded “one for the boys” theme.  I know most people hate making cards for the boys and men in their lives but with 3 men/boys in my house it’s something I’ve become used to.  As luck would have it I needed a card for my nephew’s birthday, which is today (Happy 22nd Birthday Jonathan) so my card is for him.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 88 - one for the boys

PFP challenge 88 - one for the boys (close up)

I bought this digi image especially for my nephew (you know what they are like at 22 lol!) from Kenny K and it’s called ‘cheers dude’.  I really like these dovecraft papers, even though they are really old, but I’m almost out of them now.  I think they are just perfect for male themed cards.  Add my trademark stars and there you have it lol! 

Our sponsor this week is Angel Crafts and the lucky winner will receive a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.

Hi Denise, I saw this creation on the PFP blog earlier and it caught my eye. It's a great image, and your colouring is lovely, you can really see the shading on the shirt especially. Perfect image for an older guy too. I'm sure he will love it. A great creation. Thanks for joining in with our die/punches theme at Incy Wincy this week. Hope to see you again next week. Annette xx
