Another Monday Grrrr - but made a card!

Well its Monday and that means its another day for starting Chemotherapy :o( ... I've had a lovely week off from it and enjoyed being able to play with Poppy and not have to worry about eating at a certain time to take the dreaded pills. But enough of the depression! How about a card...
I've not really played around with male cards, simply because they are a right pain to make - well at least I think they are. Girl cards are sooo much easier. With male cards you have to think a little more, and to be fair, I dont do thinking - it hurts far too much...
So when I stumbled across Colour Create Challenge Blog - I thought I'd have a go at thier Orange, Green and Brown Challenge for week 13... As an optional extra we could make a male card. So I opted for a card that would suit my friends Son, who will be turning 3 soon. I've kept it simple, because even though he is only 2, coming up 3, he is an immaculate child. Doesnt like to be dirty and hates mess...
So... Using a Hangler & Stangler that I was kindly sent to me by a friend a wee while ago, but never got round to colouring him. I've used my Copics to colour him. The hanging charm was one I found in my stash - from where I have no idea.
The Papers I have used are all from Designer Extreme Vol I created by Donna over at Bearly Mine Crafts. As you may have seen on other posts - Donna is due to release a new set of discs, another backing paper cd (Designer Extreme Vol II) and a brand new inserts cd (Designer Inserts Extreme)... Pre-Orders are being taken now, and the discs are due for release on May 5th.
Well thats it from me... I am off to Looe for a couple of days with my boyfriend and baby girl for a couple of days. I will endevour to comment on everyones cards over at Colour Create who have taken part this week when I get back on Friday afternoon... Until then, have a lovely week, and I hope the weather stays very dry for everyone!!
Y Thanks for popping by! Y
