"Errr what did you say?"

It's time for another
"Pike's Playground Challenge"
and this time the theme is 

(NB please use Dustin Pike images)

Unfortunately the teddy bear I used as a model on my card had "cloth ears" (slightly deaf)

When I said "thumbs up" he thought I said "bums up"!!

So I would like to apologise on behalf of myself and Dustin Pike for my bear bottom, sorry bear's bottom (typo)

Unfortunately I omitted to note the Copic colours used, I guess staring at a bear's butt may have had something to do with that!

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

No it's Super Boy!

It's dull and wet outside right now so I was in dire need of something bright, cheery and non-fattening when I spied Mo's cute little chap sitting on my shelf.....

..........and I thought I'd share him with my bloggyland friends!! 

I even decorated the inside of the card this time

Paper: DCWV - All About Boys (love this set)
Colouring: Caran D'Ache Supracolor Pencils, Chalk ink
Additional: ribbon and peel-offs from stash, Word art on front by Create with TLC
word art inside by me

Have a great weekend and Happy Father's Day to all those Dads out there!

It's a boy thing!

It's time for another Pike's Playground Challenge

"It's a boy thing"

Anything goes for this one as long as it's suitable for the male of the species!!

This is my interpretation: 

Now if my husband is reading this blog entry,( I know he does) honey you need to develop amnesia - you have not seen this card.......

Copics colours used
 Image: Dustin Pike "Read with me" available HERE
Paper: DCWV All About Boys stack
Colouring: Copics (see above for colours)
Additional: Quickutz dies, ribbon from stash, chalk ink

Why not join in, with Father's Day coming up on June 19 (UK & USA) you've got a great reason to get those creative juices flowing.
