DID YOU KNOW ...

Today is 
HUMOR ME WEDNESDAY
on the Bugaboo Stamps'
blog?

So in honour of NATIONAL SIBLINGS DAY today
I have made this card:


The image featured on my card is called Best Buds from the Bugaboo Stamps Store and I have used alcohol markers and a white gel pen to colour it.

The colour palette has been taken from The Outlawz Colour Challenge this week:


To make up my card I used:
mustard/golden card base
white CS card background
fabric print DP with edges chalked
an offcut of some 'strapping' stuff I found in my sewing basket
a red button
some red cord
a round sentiment (free) from Hannelie, the Desert Diva (thanks Hannelie- enjoy your spring break in Thailand!) 
I cut the sentiment using a round die, and mounted it onto a 'golden' slightly larger scalloped diecut.  It has a red gem nose

I think this is a great 'boy' card - don't you?

Happy National Siblings Day to everyone - now go an hug your brother or sister - and if you don't have one, adopt one for the day.

luv'n huggz (to all my sisters in craft)
