A Special Little Lady With A Special Message!

Good evening all!
Here's a special little lady, made for a very special lady!
She also carries a very special message!
If you look at her t shirt,  you'll see she's sporting a 
Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon
This is something very close to my heart at the moment.
Please, if you don't already do it, 
Check Your Boobies!

I love Saturated Canary images but I didn't own one until a few days ago!

This little stunner 'Boobie Love' was a freebie! 
Yes I said a freebie from here!
Isn't she just gorgeous! 
All that is asked of you is to become a follower of Saturated Canary's
Blog before you download her!
I coloured her up with promarkers!

The Design Papers I've used are from Craft Works
The layout was based on this weeks sketch from

Here's a closer look at the little lady!
I cut her out with an oval nestie then
 matted her onto a scalloped oval

The sentiment was from Rainbow Echo Designs.
I also cut this out with an oval nestie & inked 
while it was still in the die!

The little flower was made with a Marianne Die &
the leves were made using a Martha Stewart Punch

I also decorated the inside of the card!
I hope you like my little card!

Dinner is Served Sir!

Good Morning lovely bloggers!
Did you remember to put your clocks forward in the UK?
 Dude Time Doodles are sponsoring this weeks Challenge over at
Pile It On For/From a Man
Here's the card I made!

This is Gordy Garcon, from Dude Time Doodles,
he's such a handsome dude, isn't he!
I wanted to make a simple card with clean lines.
I used a 5" x5" square card blank, added matts of
ribbed cardstock & core'dinations card.
I punched one edge of the core'dinations cardstock with an 
EK Success punch & added a little piece of ribbon.
My Stash is full of these little bits of ribbon which people 
cut from their clothes & save for me.
I also added some buttons from my stash.

I coloured Gordy with Promarkers, trimmed the image then
rounded the corners with a little punch. I then matted him onto the 
two kinds of cardstock, adding some detail with
 little brads at the corners

The sentiment ticket is from The Crafty Pad Designs
I matted it onto the ribbed cardstock

To finish the card off I decorated the insde!
I hope you like my card & I hope you can find the time to play in the 
For From A Man Challenge over at
