Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 16 - It's a Man's World

Hi!  OMG we have only two days to get ready for Christmas!! well three including today :-)

I'm sure I am not alone in saying that the snow we have had uncharacteristically early here in the UK has seriously impacted my plans...

... Scrapbook Sisters are planning to be open today and tomorrow only for your last minute crafty gifts and they do vouchers too... perfect for the partner or husband who asks "Martha Stewart who?", and worries slightly at you sighing over someone called Tim Holtz :-)

I for one have armed HB with a FULL list... where to get it, prices and sizes where applicable are included but I know if the worst happens and we get another dose of the white stuff before he finishes work today then he will be able to get hold of Karen and she will make sure Santa is kid to me :-)

Seriously though, I'm Christmas shopping RIGHT now and have both a proper 4x4 ( prehistoric Land Rover, knobbly tyres) and a tractor on standby to get my useless rear wheel drive, automatic, usually-oh-so-efficient-but-completely-hopeless-in-the-way-of-a-duck-on-ice-german-built-monster out from whichever ditch I finally succumb to... I'm getting the sinking feeling it is a matter of time, no matter how careful I am :-(.  HB has been looking for a second hand Land Rover on eBay... and for once I am not protesting!! 

Right, enough rambling, onto today's card

It's a Man's World

Here's my card

Please excuse the two interlopers into the picture... they wanted their 15 minutes of fame and who was I to say no :-)

Once I'd persuaded them to get out of shot...

I've used the lovely new papers by Echo Park for this card, which is for my neighbour... I think he'll appriciate it :-)

This is a lovely design, but I have used red and blue stickles on the dots to perk it up a bit more...

as I had a bit of paper left over I carried it over to the inside

The image is coloured with copics, and accented with Glossy accents and more stickles

CS - Blue and White Bazzill Bling; Borders from Wintertime Collection, Echo Park: Image and Sentiment - Bugaboo; Ribbon; Woodware Fluffy Stuff; Red and Blue Stickles; Personal Impressions Sentiment; Stone Grey Stazon; Cricut; MS Border Punch; Woodware 3" Circle Punch;

Before I go I would like to thank all my blog followers for their support and encouragement for my creations, and to all my friends at Scrapbook Sisters (you know who you are!!) and to everyone who has taken part in the Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenges.  Merry Christmas!!

Thanks for stopping by, looking forward to seeing how you interpret this challenge :-)
