Charlie the boxer

Well not sure if that is his name but thats who this fab digi reminds me of. The image is actually called 'Boxer pup'bySue from Beary dust and you can find it here at Stitchy stamps. Now the reason I call him Charlie is as my bro and sis in law had a boxer and he had this fab brindle colour so when I got to play with this super image I just knew I would be making a birthday card to go in storage for October for my bro in laws birthday.

I think by now that you have gathered its sunday and time for another fab challenge from the wonderful team at One Stitch at a Time.

We had some super entries for our use a digi challenge and boy was there alot of them and all so different, glad I don't have to choose a winner, it would be a real hard job.Why not pop over to the challenge blog to see who the lucky winner was and check out the DT inspiration cards for our next challenge, you'll not be sorry.

Now for my card as I said I used this fab Boxer image and coloured him with my promarkers, the rest of the card is a die cut deep red and simply scraps from my scrap stash.The sentiment is a 'shameful'(lol) peel-off but I think it just finishes off this card and suits the design, never understood the shame in them myself..

Anyway here's my card.

Oh suppose I should tell you our challenge theme, another one you are all going to play I'm sure as our theme-anything goes. Our sponsor this time the stamping boutique some yummy digi's as the prize.
