Happy Holidays!

Happy Wednesday bloggers!
I hope you're all well!
It's time for the latest challenge at Dude Time Doodles.
This week is an Inspiration Challenge
Here's my card!




We'd like to see you make a Holiday Creations for a man,
your project can be either Christmas/Hannukah!

I made a twisted easel card using kraft card for my base.
pad by Southfield Stationers. I think these colours are just right
for making cards for men!


The image I've used is Bloodhound Christmas, it's available in the 
Every time I look at that image, it reminds me of the mayhem & fun
which results in our family get together's at Christmas!
Always a real hoot I have to say! lol
I coloured my image with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
then distressed the edges with a Colourbox chalk inkpad.


Here's another view.
I kept my card simple, matting the design papers with
plain black paper. I then made some little corners with a snowflake paper
& I used the sentiment as the stop for my easel section. 
The ribbon trim was a gift, I'm not sure how well
you can see it in the photo but it's black & silver too!
