Hey, Young Man!!

Hey guys! It's Tuesday, and that can only mean one thing. It's time for another challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers, and today the challenge has been set by our very own Heidi - she wants to see those troublesome MALE CREATIONS that we know you guys can rock so well!!


The lucky winner of this challenge will win a Collecters Set of ProMarkers courtesy of Letraset. Aren't we good to ya? ;) Get those entries in NOW. Here's some stuffs to inspire ya..

I've used an image from Some Odd Girl, this is Puppy Tobie and I LOVE his hoodie - don't you? I so need one of those as part of my winter threads this year. I've coloured him up with the usual ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match my papers from Echo Park - This and That collection. LOVE those papers, so much so that I'm down to my last few sheets. ;)

I've added some yellow twill stripe ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and threaded a little olive button with some brown bakers twine to add some detail to the knot of that poofy bow. As for 'bling' which is always hard to include on a male card, I've sprinkled some Doodlebug brads here and there, in an odd number of course! The sentiment is from a Some Odd Girl Set, and I've stacked it up to fill in more of the white space around Tobie. Lastly, because none of my male cards would be complete without them, I've punched some stars using an SU! punch and some patterned papers from the same collection, which fills up that empty corner nicely.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
 Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Challenge 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
The Hybrid Chick - 7 Things
I have 7 brads on my card.

Before I go I've got some links to share with ya!
