Let's Hear It For The Boys !!

Challenge #174 at The Crafty Pad is...Let's Hear It For The Boys !!

 Now I know men can be hard to create for,  but we all have to come up with something so now is a good time to enter our challenge seeing Fathers Day is just around the corner or get ahead for a male Birthday becuase we have two fab sponsor prizes this week !!

First is from : Letraset
With a fab set of Pastel Tones promarkers !!
Second is from: Crafty Emma's Store with £10 to spend online !!
It's Design Team  A's turn this week so that includes me !!

I went a bit mad again this week and made a squeezy card from scratch !!  I start with an idea and it sort of grows...........
 Forgive me not going into great detail over this card,  but we will be here forever !!  I started with three 7" x 7" pieces of white card and cut the same aperture in the middle of two of them. Then cut two strips of white card to make the concertina sides. These sides allow you to flaten your card for posting.
The digi images I have used are :  "Albert Diggin"- "Sammy Scarecrow"- "Molly with Birdhouse" and "Bestest Dad Ticket"   All have been coloured with promarkers and then cut out.

I then cut out and coloured umpteen trees using a marianne die,  a few fence panels and ivy trails also using a marianne dies.  I did cloud effects on all three of the 7" x 7" pieces of white card using a blue distress ink and then just really played in making up the scene !!

Now if you enter our challenge using a Crafty Pad Design digi you will be getting a  FREE TREAT  ??????
