So Stinkin’ Cute

We’d love to see your Black and White cards/projects at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best this week.Check out the challenge bog for details on how you could be the lucky winner of a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop or join us as a Guest Designer.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s beautiful creations too. 

For my card I’ve used the irresistible Stinky!He’s such a sweetie!He’s been coloured with Promarkers and depth has been added with some Black Soot Distress Ink.I actually found it quite scary to use such a dark colour but I think it turned out OK.I used a Cuttlebug puzzle die to cut two pieces of black and white card that I printed off from Canon Creative Park.I was just going to run them through at random then it hit me to match them up!Didn’t do too bad a job.I’ve still got some left over to use on something else.The swirly panel was created by using a Cuttlebug embossing folder on some Whitewash card and sanding it back to reveal the colour underneath.I rubbed over the sponge with the remaining ink on it for extra definition.I cut the flower,part of a Cuttlebug alphabet set, from some felt for added furry texture to go with my little friend here and adhered a black pearl in the centre.The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set.

It’ also a special day for me today.It’s my Birthday!!Although I say it with some trepidation – another year older and all that.Anyway I had some lovely cards,pretty flowers, yummy Thornton’s chocs and The QI Book of General Ignorance – one of my fave programmes .I haven’t had my ‘real’ pressie yet.Unfortunately it won’t be anything crafty as I’ve been waiting for what seems like an age for some Al Murray – The Pub Lanlord tickets to be available.They seem to sell out rather rapidly.I know he’s not to everyone’s taste but as it’s DH’s Birthday next week too he treated us.Mind you we’ve ended up in the Circle as the only tickets left in the Stalls were in the front row.Given DH’s ever growing Beer Belly and shaven head,to hide the grey,I’m pretty sure he would be a prime candidate for Al to pick out.I feel you’d have to be very brave to sit under his nose at one of his shows!!All hail to the ale!
