Lookin' Cool...

Here's a very quick card that I made.... I had a play around with digitally layering the sentiment but it didn't come out quite how I planned it... think it needs some tweaking!! LOL ... but thought I would show you the card anyway... as the doggie is very cute!! 

Image: David Parkin freebie with magazine
Patterned Paper: Stitchy Bear Stamps - 'Doodle Boys'
Metal Embellie: Wild Orchid Crafts - 'Antique Gold Square'

A very simple card and as it is for a bloke.... I've just added one metal embellie...

I've coloured this cute little fella with Copics and Promarkers

I would like to enter the following Challenges:-

Cupcake Craft - 'Raining Cats and Dogs' 
Aud Sentiments - 'For a Guy' 

I hope you all had a lovely Saturday... my daughter is home this weekend and so we are enjoying catching up on some of our favourite TV Programmes!  I have also just bought the book Shopping, Seduction & Mr Selfridge which is the real life story of Mr Selfridge ...  I think it's going to be one of those books that you can't put down!  LOL

Thanks for all your lovely comments... I will catch up with you very soon....
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday! :-)
Love and hugs

I think this card looks great, Sue! I like how you did the sentiment, where some parts of the sentiment have the same pattern as your DP. The DP is really cool, great for a male card!

Janice said...

That is such a cute dog! Love your colouring and your super male card. Well done you jigging around with the sentiment, I wouldn't have a clue how to do that. Have fun with your daughter and enjoy your new book. I'm reading about the sugar girls at the moment - the girls that worked for Tate & Lyle sugar factory. Light reading but I enjoy it! Jx

Hi Sue Love your card your image is beautifully coloured and your sentiment great fun. Great guy card. Hope you and mum and dad are keeping well. Have fun when your daughter is home my elder son was home for a very fleeting overnight visit last week ( 5pm Friday until 7 am Sat) but it was smashing to see him. Lots of problems with my computer younger son says I need to invest in a new one. Have a great weekend Hugs Meg
