Man's Best Friend

Hello Everyone
Here I am again with my next DT card for Cardz 4 Guyz. This week we would like to see your 'Man's Best Friend' male orientated creations.
This was quite tricky for me, as I  must admit  I am much more of a cat person than a dog person.
I looked through my stamp collection, and was struggling to find any that fitted the theme and inspired me, so instead I thought I'd do a punch art creation, inspired from Pintrest.
All the stamps used are from Stampin' Up, and I have used a stamp from the Glorious Grunge set to add the spots. I hope you like my little doggie, and he inspires you to join in the main challenge.
I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges;
Ike's World - embossing
Tuesday Throwdown - embossing
Craft-Dee Bowz - anything goes with a handmade bow
Creatures and Critters - anything goes with a creature
Incy Wincy - texture
Creatalicious - anything goes with no DP
Paradise Of Stamps - a touch of Kraft
Alphabet Challenge - F for furry friends
Crafty Catz - dies and punches
and
Crafty Ribbons - it's a mans world
Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back soon with some more creations.

Dig It

Hello All
Well it's a very busy week this week - my youngest son turned 13 at the weekend, and my eldest is 18 on Wednesday, so it's all been a bit hectic at the ranch.
Hence I have done a very quick card for this weeks challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz, where we would like to see your 'Dig It' themed cards. This could be gardening or 60's/70's dig it saying or digging for treasure or however you wish to interrupt it.
I have used a very old DoCrafts backing sheet for my card, with some PaperNation decoupage and a simply sentiment to finish. Considering how quick this card was to make, I was quite pleased with the outcome.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Creative Card Crew - anything goes
Lemon Shortbread - anything goes
Crafting From The Heart - anything goes
Our Crafty Corner - anything goes
Amusing - anything goes
and
Crafty Friends - in the garden
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you will jump on over to the main blog and join in the fun,
See you again soon.

Button Bling

Hello Again
Well, I've gone all blingy today for the latest challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz. This fortnight we would like to see your female orientated cards featuring 'A Button or Two', which was my choice.
