Blue For You!

Good morning all!
It's Wednesday already can you believe it!
Time for the new challenge at
 This time it's a colour challenge
Use two or more shades of Blue

The image I have used is Benny Hanna, don'tcha just love him!
I brought him to life with my Promarkers, then inked the 
edges with a little chalk ink pad!
I tried to come up with a real punny sentiment but I'm afraid
all I could think of was "don't lose your head"
I did find a fab new free font called MA Fishy though!
As you can see, I made a Gatefold Card.
I love this style of card!

The paper I used was from the Oragami papers I have in my stash.

I decorated the inside of the card to complement the outside!

As you can see I used a length of royal blue ribbon from 
my stash to tie around it!
I'm still working with a limited amount of craft stuff as the house
is still upside down! I can't wait until it all gets sorted out so I can 
find some suitable furniture to house my stash in the spare bedroom!
Don't forget to check out the other DT creations at 
Dude Time Doodles
I can't wait to see your BLUE creations!
