A couple of cards.

Here's a couple of cards that i've made...
Emergency Crafters challenge. I found out about this new challenge blog via facebook, this is their first challenge and the theme is to use Red or Blue (or both)
Today happens to be my friend's hubby's bithday and his card happens to be mainly blue so I thought i'd show my support to this new blog and enter this card...

The metallic and soundwave papers are from my Kanban Male Backgrounds CD, This fabby image is called mini love and is from Sketching Stamper, although I had to alter it a little in my graphics program so that it would look like his own car (I have also put his reg number on the licence plate, but have gone back into my editing program and distorted that bit for this photo)
The sentiment is by Inkadinkado.

I'd also like to enter this card in the challenge over at Polka Doodles, Let's hear it for the boys!

And here's my other card...

This was a quickie make, The hilarious image was a freebie from Dustin Pike (thank you Dustin) I coloured it with promarkers, then assembled the card using a powder blue cardstock base, scraps of navy blue, grey and black cardstock and acetate (the windscreen, hard to see in the photo, sorry)
The sentiment is a SeeD's one.

I'm hoping that this card is eligible for the challenge over at Cards For Men, which has the theme 'Cheeky Chappies' the DT examples show cards that cause a giggle for a man.
Also for the challenge over at Digi Doodle Shop challenges which has a theme of Animals.

Thanks for looking xx
