Did you know that the first week of September is INTERNATIONAL ENTHUSIASM WEEK?

No?  well, nor did I, but in honour of the cause, I created a card using the king of cynical enthusiasm, our dear old Gus! 

Go check out the Bugaboo Catch the Bug blog for some more fabulous HUMOR ME WEDNESDAY creations!

My card features the Bugaboo Stams digital image called Gus tidbit - Spontaneous that I coloured wit my new GRAPHI'IT alcohol markers - have YOU tried them yet?  The courier delivered mine yesterday and I was so excited that I had to try them out immediately.  I have to share with you that I LOVE LOVE LOVE them, and oncee they are available in South Africa I am sure that they will be my marker of choice!


Here is a detailed pic of the image coloured with my graph'it markers:

The layout of my card is according to Sketch 4-12-12 at Let's Scrap where it will be my Day 4 entry for the LOAD challenge. I used the left hand page and rotated it 90 degrees to the left :


I used the following for my card ;

white CS card base
dark blue CS card mats
2 different DP
white CS (punched) scalloped borders
sentiment on a tage with a silver cord tie
large (antique) button with silver cord tie
