Beer Mug Card

A Birthday card for a friend's father. The beer mug is a template from Anna Marie Designs CD volume 2, the brick background and bottle tops are from Polkadoodles Not For Girls CD. The 'froth' is pearlised paper embossed with the Cuttlebug divine swirls folder. The sentiment I printed off the computer, and finished it off with some blue knotted string.

C.R.A.F.T Challenge Milestone Birthdays/Anything Goes & DT Call

Firstly, we have some news for you at C.R.A.F.T, we're sorry to say that Andrea, Eileen, Julie and Claire are leaving us, we're very sorry to see them go but wish them all the best of luck in whatever they do next.

This means that we need some new DT members and so are having a DT call, if you're interested in being part of our team, go over to C.R.A.F.T to see what you need to do.

Now onto our challenge, this week it's Milestone Birthdays/Anything Goes, and our sponsor is our DT member Claire (Hope Jacare).

The prize you could win is Claire's lovely Daisy rubber stamp, these and more of Claire's stamps are available from Polkadoodles, or in digi form at Stitchy Bear Stamps.

For my DT card I have used one of Claire's images, Scatty Cat with Ball. I have coloured him with Promarkers, and stamped around him with a small flower stamp. The backing paper is My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow and the sentiment I printed off the computer. Finally some pale green organza ribbon and a crochet flower to finish off.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Polkadoodles colouring competition, they have a fantastic prize of a set of Aquamarkers which I'd love to win!

By The Cute & Girly challenge which is Animal Antics.

Thanks for looking :-)
