Dude Time

Here we are, with a new challenge for you at Craft Your Passion! This week, our theme is to make a male card. Not easy for some of us, but an easy challenge for some of you! I hope you'll play along with us this week!! You could win some great prizes!

Oh, and of course, we have a fabulous sponsor for you this week! This week it is Dude Time Doodles (Bonniebleux Designs)! Bonnie generously gave the DT some of her awesome images to work with, and she is offering $10 in digi images from her store, to one lucky winner! You don't want to miss out on your chance at this fabulous prize!

For my card, I am using this hilarious image, Jose Hosed, by Dude Time Doodles (Bonniebleux Designs). As soon as I seen him, I just had to have him! He cracks me up! I knew, instantly, the sentiment I was going to use with him!

The papers are all from my stash. I tried to go with male type colors, so I chose a mix of browns, blues and greens. Of course, I had to throw a little twist on it, with the addition of the brown polka dots. Who says Polka Dots can't be for men?! Mr Jose Hosed is using his hose to spray off his porch. He is colored with Promarkers. I typed up the sentiment, It's not the size of your Hose, it's how you use it," on the computer and then punched it out with a scalloped oval punch by Marvey. I used a cinnamon brown ink to go around the edges of the sentiment. The sentiment is attached, using foam mounting tape for added dimension.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
