So Macho!

Good morning peeps, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts today and our theme is 'Masculine' hosted by the lovely Mervi. Our wonderful sponsor is Digistamp Boutique.

Digistamp 

My card was made for a football mad chap who celebrated a rather big birthday recently. I used the super cute Football Alf from our sponsor Digistamp Boutique. The recipient is a Chelsea supporter so I stuck to blue as my main colour...

 This is the gift we gave (only a token). It's a huge mug filled with quotes and silly sayings about being 40 and some chocolate...
 I wrapped the mug and card in cellophane...

Supplies:
Image - Football Alf coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Papers - some very old Doodlebug paper I found in my paper box
Buttons - stash
Seam binding - Crafty Ribbons
Other - Quickutz star dies, Memory Box Cloud die, Spellbinders label die

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

PPPPick up a Penguin...

Hello, happy Wednesday. We had a fab day at London Zoo on Monday. Having my hair cut today and then off for my flu jab later, thought it was a good idea when I booked it but feeling nervous now :-( The rest of my day is going to be taken up by cleaning and sorting. I made these 2 CAS cards using the same paper pad and same image but they look very different, what do you think...


Supplies:
Image - from the Arctic Fun set coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Winter Wonderland by Dovecraft
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Buttons - Dovecraft
Sentiment tag - Craftwork Cards
Other - Spellbinders circle & scallop circle dies, brown inkpad, Star Dust Stickles

Thanks so much for looking x
