Something a little bit different today, and just a tad cheeky ūüėõ

Using the current Mojo Monday layout and the ABC Challenge topic, I was inspired to make this very male orientated card.

I’ve used an A5 white card onto which I have matted and layered some black and¬†gold card and a red imitation leather paper.¬† The various cogs have been die cut using my ever increasing stash of spellbinders and the very lovely lady is a Kenny K digistamp called Pitstop Penny, who has been coloured in with Promarkers.¬† The¬†buckle on the ribbon is also a die, cut out of black card and then¬†I’ve gone over it with Glossy Accents to make it shiny and the sentiment is a peel off.

I need some cards for men, for one of the girls at work, so I think this will give her an alternative to the usual sport and car options.

Anyway, must crack on, things to do, but I’ll be back again soon

Good Evening All,

I know it’s been a while, but work has kinda taken over lately ūüė¶¬† I have been making some cards, honestly, ¬†but I just haven’t had the time to post.¬† Anyway, finally got a little of bit time this evening, so thought I’d best get on with it!

This is the first time I have used a digi stamp, and OMG aren’t they a brilliant idea.¬† I printed off quite a large image,¬†and coloured it in with promarkers – very carefully coz I didn’t know whether they would bleed, but no, no problem at all.¬† Fantastic!¬† I made an 8×8 twisted easel card from some grey card stock, the check paper was in my stash, along with the black ribbon.¬† The star, “21” and “son” have been cut out using my cricut and the heart at the top is a peel off, which I’ve then cut round and used some black peel off¬†letters to put in the words “you rock”.¬† The stopper for the easel is just a large brad, put through the ribbon with a peel off on top.

I am so impressed with the digi stamp, I bought four more ūüėÄ !

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
