Sweet Stampin DT Card

Good morning everyone how are you all this fine morning? Actually I dont even know if it is fine as its really 11pm friday night & I'm scheduling this for this morning.........keeping fingers crossed that it publishes as the last few times it s let me down......bad bad blogger!!!
I would also like to welcome all my new followers (waving like a lunatic) I'm so happy & honoured to have you here & I hope I continually provide inspiration....mmwah..
Well its Saturday so that means I have DT cards to show you this post is for
Yes its team Fluff's turn this week to show you some inspiration. First tho we would like to thank everyone who entered the movie themed challenge it seems you like that a wee bit better than the sketch the week before.......we had very few entries that week. Hopefully this week will be better still so I hope you will all join in as we need to make the girls job hard for picking the spotlights lol.
This week the theme we are going for is
Slugs, Snails & Puppy Dog Tails....
Our sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps.
Which basically means a card for a boy.....a real propper boy who loves to get dirty!! Think boys, mud, insects etc......
Now you know me & these male cards (I'm sure they are doing it to me on purpose you know lol)
Well here is my boys card....

It is a Kenny K image 'Tug O War' which I just think is awesome to be honest & whenever I've played this with my boys & hubby we have also got dirty lol......such fun tho.

These little boys have been coloured with Copics

All the papers & sentiment are digi printables papers from Pink Gem & the sentiment from the Cutting Cafe.
The button, string & brown saddle stitch ribbon(altho you can barely see it lol) are from my stash & the brown leather string is from my jewellery stash. I was asked to make a bracelet last year & I brought a load in all different colours as you do lol. The brown card used for matting is the rolls from inside wrapping paper at crimbo lol.
Now with tug of war you need people the other end............. they are......this is one fo the reasons I love digi's cus you can do things like this. I just mirrored the image & stuck it to the inside. I kept it plain white on the inside so I just layered another piece of white card & then stuck the image on gives it the same thickness & feel as the front then if you get what I mean lol.

Well thats it from me pop over to the challenge blog here to give my fellow teamies some love cus they have sure made inspiring creations again this pop over & take a peekskie.
I will be back in a little while with my next DT card so dont go too far lol.
Thank you sooooo much for all your lovely comments about my new DT position I soooo appreciate it I can still hardly believe it!!!
Will be round to see you very soon my lovelies.
Lotsa huggles & cuggles
