Whose Handsome?

Good morning and a jolly happy weekend to you all! A big welcome to my newest followers - Camellia, Sharon and Bridie I am thrilled to have you!  I would normally be sharing my card for Card Makin' Mamas with you today but we are running a bit late with the challenge so it won't be today. As I have been busy trying to get ahead with DT work I didn't have anything new made.  But I did find the birthday card I made for my son back in January which I haven't posted before.  He is a big Salvidor Dali fan so I thought this Rick St Dennis image would be perfect for him:


I know the image is Rick St Dennis and I coloured it with Copics.  I think the papers may be Bo Bunny but not sure now!  The clock is Tim Holtz die and the sentiment is computer generated and hand cut with a square punch to make the fish tail.  Distressed with Antique Linen.  I think I should have done the picture bigger now I see it up there!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Card Crafters Circle - Boys to Men
Digital Tuesdays - Birthdays
My Time to Craft - Use Kraft

Anything nice planned for the weekend? I was supposed to be taking my Aunt down to Stratford-Upon-Avon today to see her newest great grandchild but the blooming garage didn't have my car ready! I don't like driving my husband's car its too big so I have had to re-arrange our soiree down to Stratford, I really hate letting my Aunt down especially at the last minute!  Thanks so much for looking, have a fabulous weekend and take care xx
