Karen's Doodles Challenge#51 - 3rd GD Card

Morning peeps. Another week has speeded by so that must mean it is Monday again. I hope you are ready for another super Challenge over at KAREN'S CHALLENGE BLOG . The theme this week is we would like to see a Masculine project.

My Guest Designer Card.

The digi image is "Mr Fix it Grandpa" and it can be found in the SHOP . The colouring medium is Promarkers. The sentiment is computer generated. The image & sentiment have been cut & mounted using "Labels One" S4-161 from Spellbinders and also has been stippled with "Crushed Olive" DI using Ink Dusters. The dp's are "Son" My Family item#136 & "Delicate Dots" Road Show item#170 both from Fancy Pants Designs. The buttons are off of old jeans!!! The string is from my stash.

I hope I haven't broken any of the rules by actually making this card for personnal use but I couldn't resist making this one for a friend's 70th. He has spent his life either paying someone to do his jobs or his wife has done it!!!! It has become a joke between us over the years we have known him.

Don't forget besides having the pleasure of using Karen's super images in this Challenge you have the opportunity of winning:-

1st Place - 3 Digi Stamps of your choice from KAREN'S SHOP and card of the week Blinkie awarded to the best entry.

2nd Place - 2 Digi Stamps of your choice from KAREN'S SHOP .

3rd Place - 1 Digi Stamp of your choice from KAREN'S SHOP .

Have a great time in this Challenge and good luck.
