Mr Muscleman !

Evening everyone, This particular card is made for my nephew/Godson..He is entering into a 'Mr Muscle' competition here in Mallorca. There will be about a 1000 people attending and is a very important event ! Its difficult enough finding images and DP's for this type of sport. So l roped in a few CB forum friends and after alot of searching was sent these papers and image sheets. l have used them all LOL ! Waste not Want not hehehe...l have used a aperture card, acetate, gold mirri card for matting and decoupaged all the images....l am entering this card into the following challenges...Cards For Men , The theme over there is 'Someone Special '...Over at Pollycraft Challenge, the theme is 'Boyz-to-Men'... At Crafty Catz , the theme this week is ' Quote or sentiment '....l have shown the inside of the card too ! ..Hugs susan x

Good morning everyone, Hope you are all enjoying your Bank holiday today in the UK ! Normal day for us over here... Awoke this morning to hear the great news about the death of a 'monster'..This will bring some comfort to everyone that has been touched by the web of horror this monster has spun ! Can we now feel safe ? l doubt it,only time will tell... Thank you to the brave team that went in and took care of business ! Onto the card for today ....Over at Bah!Humbug!, the theme this week is 'Pleats / Ruffles'..So l have decided to go with a colour scheme of Lilac on a cream DL card.Image and sentiment are from Kanban and l have used gold mirri card for matting and the purple dots DP / pearls / and little ruffled flower are all from my stash ..simple little card, but l think its quite effective.So sorry for the dark pic, but the weather here today has been so dreary and stormy .. wishing you all a lovely evening ..Hugs Susan x
