Sweet stampin' - masculine

Our challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week is 'masculine', which was quite handy for me because Morgan's going to a birthday party later today so he needed a card to take with him... they're going 'tubing' at the ski village (dry ski slopes)... must admit to not being entirely sure what tubing is lol!  We're sponsored by the fabulous Quixotic Paperie who are offering the lucky winner a £10 voucher, and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen who is also offering a £10 voucher for our monthly winner.

The image is from a fab set called The Snuggles from DigiStamp Boutique, printed onto linen card and coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The photos have made the spotty paper look a bit pink, but it does actually match the red/orange balloon.  The papers were a magazine freebie that I admired on Debs blog and lovely lady that she is, she sent me a copy of the mag with the freebie papers!  Thanks again hun :o)  The sentiment was made using the Birthday Numbers set from Pink Gem Designs, and the button was from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

We've been to see The Muppets at the cinema today... ooh I loved it, and the kids did too!  Hubby was a bit bemused though, don't think Poland really did The Muppets!  I think he liked it once he'd got used to all the sudden 'bursting into song' type stuff.  I've gone all sleepy now though - always the same when I go to the cinema during the day.  Hope you're all having a fab weekend :o)

Jenny said...

Lol... I suppose the muppets would be kinda strange if you hadn't seen them before!! Hehe
Cutsie card Lisa, I love the balloon lifting the pups ear :0)
I think tubing is going down the slope sitting in large inner tyres but I could be mistaken, Hannah has done something like that and it was great fun apparently!
Make sure he has his legs and arms covered, those slopes can burn.
