Stamp with fun #120–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I hope you had a great weekend, although it was probably a wash-out, cos it certainly was here.  We did see some spells of sunshine but they were soon drowned away lol!  Never mind at least I had good news on Friday – my dad was able to come home from hospital *yay*.  He still needs to have some tests and has to go back for blood tests but at least he’s home and he’s feeling much better than last weekend.  In total he lost 1st 2lbs in weight after treatment for water retention during his hospital stay.  I wish I could have a diet that works that well and that quickly lol!!  He wanted me to thank you all for your lovely messages whilst he has been in hospital. 

Onto today’s card and it’s for the brand new challenge today over at stamp with fun challenge.  This week we have a brilliant sketch by Tina46 to use and here is my card:

and here is the sketch:

I have used a brilliant image by Kenny K called ‘cheers dude’ and coloured it with my promarkers.  The papers are SU and as the card is for one of those “difficult males” I used only tiny stars as my embellishments. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Kenny k’s krafty girlz challenge – anything goes + blog hop

Oh, this is a fun card and that's not easy to do with masculine cards - but this is a lovely mix of playful and manly!
