Cards for Men challenge 8

Im having to upload this early this morning, as I have an eye test booked for 9am.

The challenge for this week is any card other than a bifold.

Our sponsors this week are Fresh brewed designs all created by Heather who offers a wide range of images from coffee, to cute and inspirational.

Heather very kindly let the design team choose any one of her images, and there are over 200 to choose from. I chose this image for my card, With 5 Grandsons, who all love bugs and creatures. They love nothing better than going on a bug hunt with Nanna, armed with a plastic box, and a pair of disposable gloves they collect as many different ones as possible, and then look in the book to see what they are. Yuk I hear you say. Not the best pastime I know, but the boys love it, and its great to be on the same level as them "for a while at least." This card is for Reece to send his Grandad on his birthday.

Image from Fresh brewed design's coloured with promarkers.
Two other stamps from Papermania. (Out of the kids box of bits)
Dp's from K&Co
Computer generated sentiments.
Card candy from Craftwork cards.

  3. Oh such a fabulous card Issy!!!. Love the colours you've used. Hugs Michele x

  4. HAHAHA!! LooOOooVe it! Gorgeous colors and the fold is fantastic! I did laugh out loud with this card. My kids also love to bug hunt. Their favorite, pill bugs (or rolly polly which is what we call them) and worms. Well, Lady bugs, caterpillars, beetles and ... well... just bugs! LOL!!!!! The kids loved playing with the green nasty tomato horn worms last year, and the worms loved my plants, so we had plenty to go around!!! :/

    I hope Grandad liked his card. Have a wonderful day.
