Another Card - Simples


This little guy is my entry for this weeks Lots To Do ,Sketch and Stash and Dare u 2 Digi Stamp challenges. The Lots to Do challenge is numbers, and as it's my Brother in Law's 40th birthday soon I thought I better get on with his card. I'd like to say that it's a little something I knocked up in my coffee break, but in fact it took me AGES to make. Why is it some people make fantastic cards in minutes and it takes me forever to make one that I have a picture of the layout for??
The new element of the card is the digi download from Sandra Dry Designs. My brother in law is a big Southampton?? supporter, so I've done 'Simples' in the team colours. My bit of bling for their challenge is the glitter down the lapels of his smoking jacket.
As soon as I saw the meerkats I had to buy the whole lot - they are so cute and great for a man's card. Anything that makes these easier is OK by me!
Thanks very much for looking xx
