Penny Black Saturday #139!

Good afternoon! Another week has been and flown by and it's time again for another Penny Black Saturday challenge! This week we'd like you to make a card for those tricky people in our lives...yep, a Men's Card! And 2 of our lovely teamies (past & present respectively) are putting up the prizes for this week - Carole & Pauline - have a look on the blog to see the gorgeous stamps up for grabs.
Here's my card using a previously stamped out image - onto watercolour paper - wow that stuff does not like my Copics, it almost drank them dry! But I really wanted to use this image - it reminded me of a dad trying to get a bit of peace then his little'un having other ideas, so I made it a Fathers Day card! I've used some of the gorgeous new MME papers and minimal embellishments.
It's also for these challenges -
Sketch and Stash Challenge - this sketch (my new stash is the papers)
Cards for Men - A Recipe (1 image, 2 papers & 3 embellishments - mine are the twill, buckle and Card Candy)
Stamp Something - Something Funky
Totally Gorjuss - Check it out
Image - 'Bibliophile' by Penny Black
Colouring - Copics
Papers - My Minds Eye 'Stella & Rose - Hattie'
Sentiment - Paula Pascual
Twill & buckle - stash
Card Candy - CraftWork cards
Also, we have a little toot for ourselves! This month, our humble blog is one of the Blogs of the Month in Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine! And do you want to know who the other one is...? Our very own Kath! Woo Hoo!! Here's a piccie!
That's all! Thanks for looking, have a lovely weekend!
