Ive chosen this image for my card, it reminds me of my Grandson Ade, he's always climbing or hanging upside down, and its what 3yr old do.

Dp from stash, Im not sure where from, Ive coloured the image with Promarkers the other elements were from a sheet that Donna from Donna's Den of craft sent to me, Donna is in fact having a closing down sale, So go check out the bargains.

Cards for Men challenge 17

Hi all

I know I haven't been to visit any of my favourite blogs for 2 weeks, I've been on Nanna duties, and with 5 boys coming and going I've had to put my stash away from sticky fingers, Ade who is only 3 likes nothing better than play with things he shouldn't. (lol)

Donna set a real challenge for me this time. cause I hate decoupage with a vengeance.

I don't have any decoupage in my stash, I have lots of cds, but guess what... the printer decided to run out of ink.. grrrrrrrr So Ive resulted to using a stamp.

I have this week to myself to play catch up. and hopefully get to play a little too................

Ive used a Peachy Keen stamp, isn't he cute, after looking at some stunning cards made by my friend "Viv" I knew I just had to have it.. I stamped 4 times and coloured the images with Promakers before cuting and layering them. The card and paper are from my stash, but Ive no idea where from. And the leaves were from a die by Marianne.
