Sweet Stampin' DT Card............Red, White & Blue


Good morning all you lovelies hope you are all fit & well for those that aren't I'm sending Get Well wishes & hugs to you. Thankyou to everyone who left me messages & e-mails regarding my hospital visit. I am back home now feeling rather groggy from the sedation but never mind. My test for my bowel came back clear & altho I still have to suffer constant pain every day while they investigate my kidneys & abdomen my bowel has nothing sinister going on......the tiny cancer growths stayed away woo hoo. It kinda puts things into prospective really lol....I'm not one to moan about illnesses & stuff anyway I look at what other people go through & just thank my lucky stars.
Anyway its been such an hectic week I have managed to do all my DT work....well just about lol altho I've had no time to just play for me but hopefully once I've caught up with all your lovely blogs then I will play. In between sorting my craft room lol.
Right onto my post which is for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin this week. It is of course Team Fluff's turn to inspire you this week & we have a colour theme........
Red, White & Blue
Now I have to admit this colour threw me a little, I will work with any colours from pastel to bold, from dark to light & even mono & sepia, but I've never used these 3 colours together so to top it off I did a male card as well.......yeah push them boundaries lol.

Of course you will know who this guy is....he is 'Huge Hero' from Kenny K. I've had this image so long & not used him so when I saw what this weeks challenge was he was the natural choice for me.

My mojo really had done a fly away when I did this so plzzzzzzz excuse the colouring. He is coloured with Promarkers.....I think & the shading on the blue was done with Prisma!!! Sedation has made my brain like cotton wool....ye I know it was like that before!!

The stars I made myself then added letters cut out using my Tim Holtz die to spell 'DAD'. The card was also made for Cards For Men who want 2 paper - check, 1 image - check & 3 embellishments - check. I've made the 3 stars as my embellishments.

The papers are from Bearly Mine Volume 3 CD & the striped ribbon is from my stash & I cant remember where it was originally from........now I've sorted my ribbons into better storage I can see what I've got & I didnt realise all what I had lol.....dontcha just love it when that happens lol.

Inside is decorated to compliment the front altho in hind-sight maybe I should of used the same shape for the inner panel on the front but never mind its done now.
Really looking forward to seeing your creations this week so we hope you can all join us. Please pop over to the challenge blog & look at what my other teamies have created, they are an incredibly talented bunch you know & they would love to see you.
Well this is a scheduled post, it is really 01.39am & I'm now going to go to bed, poor hubby is waiting for me & nodding off next to me on the sofa.....why dont men like to go bed on their own lol....he will only go bed when I go lol. Bless him!!
Well I will say tatty bye for now I will be back with my CES DT card in a bit. So all of you take care & keep on smiling. Thank you soooo much for popping in to see me I know how busy you all are so I certainly understand if you dont have time to leave me a comment......that darn thing called life does like to get in the way lol.....just joking!!!
Huge hugs to you all mmwah
Loves ya.........

Oh sugar, I cannot believe you are not happy with your colouring, because I think it looks FANTASTIC, as always. I also happen to love this card, I think it's a great male card. And you are awesome. Have a good weekend my little sticky toffee pudding. xxx

Hi hunni. Fantastic news about the bowel results. So sorry you are still in pain though. Fabulous card and your layout is just as super for a male card as your female ones. My hubby will not go to bed without me either. It is annoying at times if I am watching something on tele he is not interested in. I feel guilty.

Hugs
