Cupcake craft challenge #172–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again friends, I’m back as promised with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week our lovely boss lady Faye has set the theme and she has chosen to give us a fantastic sketch to use.  I really enjoyed using the sketch and will definitely be using it again.  Here is my card:

and here is the sketch:

CCC challenge 173 sketch

I used an image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Stan with beer’ and coloured him with promarkers and flex markers and I added some diamond glaze to the froth on his pint of beer.  The papers are wild rose studio from the ‘for men’ paper pack and I used my very last scraps of elzybells kraft card (sob!!).  I kept the layout really simple as the card is for my uncle and only added a punched star and button.   I have to say that I’m quite pleased with the finished card, even though it’s fuss free – makes a nice change sometimes doesn’t it?

Our challenge will last until 24th December but the DT will then have the following 2 weeks off to spend with our families therefore as a special treat this week we have 3 sponsors this week. Firstly we have tickled pink stamps who are offering a prize of either one rubber stamp or two digi's of winner's choice, our second sponsor is Crafty Emma’s store  and they are offering a £10 gift voucher and our third sponsor is Digital Delights who are offering 3 images of winner’s choice. 

Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsor and for December that is Polka Doodles and 2 lucky winners will receive the Pretty Sweet CD

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, 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:

Corrosive challenge – anything except Christmas

The crafty pad challenge – anything but Christmas

Cute card Thursday challenge – stripes (on his shirt??)

Little miss muffet challenge – buttons and ribbons (hope it’s ok that I only have 1 of each)

Frosted designs challenge – ribbon

Really reasonable ribbon challenge – anything goes + ribbon

Totally papercrafts challenge – time to party

CES challenge – party, party, party

Totally gorjuss challenge – for someone special

Paper sundaes challenge – celebrate

I hope you will be able to join in with our challenge this week, don’t forget it ends on 24th December and then our next challenge will begin on 9th January 2012.  I would like to welcome my newest follower Karen Letchworth who left me the most kindest, loveliest comment – it was much appreciated hun and I hope you continue to like my creations. 

I have to try and get organised tonight – I still haven’t written my cards, although at least I do have some to write this year and I’ve not wrapped any presents yet!!  Nothing like being last minute is there lol!  I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by.
