Here Come The Boys Challenge #57 SKETCH

Hey everyone, wow these challenges come round so fast I can't believe its been 2 weeks since our last challenge. It's challenge time again over at Here Come The Boys and this week we have a fantastic Sketch by our wonderful Woo for you to work with:

A bit more news from Here Come The Boys too. Dr Digi House of Stamps has recently joined us as a new sponsor and are offering the winner of this challenge a digi stamp of the winners choice. We are all very excited to be working with Dr Digi as they have some amazing male digis, perfect for our challenges.

 Ok so why isn't my card made with a Dr Digi image? Well the answer to that is we only found out last week that Dr Digi was going to be sponsoring us and I had already made my DT card by then. I have been away so haven't had chance to make another. So onto my card:

The image is from Bugaboo called Gus Birthday Reaper available HERE

The image is coloured entirely with promarkers

The papers used are Spots & Stripes > Festive pack from Papermania Capsule Collection. 

Head on over to Here Come The Boys for full details on  challenge #56 winner, how to enter this weeks challenge and full rules. Make sure your card is male orientated, we can't wait to see what you come up with.

That Craft Place Challenge

A New DT Position! 

I am very pleased and proud to announce I have been asked to become a DT member over at That Craft Place. 

If you have never stopped by That Craft Place you really should. Lisa sells some amazing goodies and the service there is second to none. I first 'met' Lisa when a mutual friend recommended That Craft Place as somewhere I should go when I decided to get my Cameo. I received top service and ordered my cameo and received it the next day!!! So when I was asked to join Lisa's team I jumped at the chance. Anyway thats enough waffling from me now lets get to the challenge. 

The theme for this weeks challenge is 'It's a Girl Thing'

I wanted to use my cameo a lot in my cards for That Craft Place to show the many many amazing things you can do with it. I have only had mine just over a month and already feel like i've definately had my moneys worth. If anyone is thinking of getting one, DO IT! you certainly won't regret it! 

The cut file I used for the card base is called Happy Birthday Card by designer Daniela Angelova available from the cameo store Design ID #45100

The Happy Birthday greeting was made using the text feature and then making a background using the offset and weld feature. (sounds more complicated then it is honestly)

The image is Bambi Bubble Gum by Kraftin Kimmie and is available from That Craft Place HERE

The image is coloured with promarkers and copics and all embellishments were from my stash. 

Head over to That Craft Place Challenge Blog for details on how to enter. I can't wait to see what girly goodness you all come up with.
