Have a Drink on me

Good morning to all my crafty friends and followers - I hope this day is as bright and shiny for you wherever you are as it is for me here in Hornby. I'm able to make this post, however, because I have to take my kiddies to the dentist this morning so I don't have to rush for school - but I do have to go to the dentist -aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!!

So here's one I've made for my husband's brother Lee who is a keen cyclist. He lives in Germany too but will appreciate the northern flat cap and real ale!

I started this card with a white 8x8 card blank and used a blending tool and distress inks (barn door - that's new, tea dye and pressed olive) to create the background. I chose the colours to match those on the La Pasche image that I decoupaged up. This is the neglected piece of stash - found it at the bottom of a draw and thought it would be perfect! The paper is basic grey from their life's a party collection and the sentiment is kanban. Buttons are from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card for the following challenges:

Sketch and stash Collection challenge:
Totally papercrafts Humour challenge
Pile it on no.13: for a man.

Not looking forward to the dentist but will have to be brave! Catch ya later!

  12. All toothpastes help remove surface stains because they contain mild abrasives. Some whitening toothpastes contain gentle polishing that provide additional stain removal effectiveness. Our Teeth Whitening is one of the effective dental service provider. I hope you like it.
