At my age ...

I'm a day late with my card for the new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons again, I keep having multiple DT cards to post on the same day and I'm sure everyone gets fed up with it, so I saved this one for today.

It's our 100th challenge and our theme is Milestone Celebrations.

I have made a card using a fun image from Bugaboo who are one of our many sponsors for this challenge.


Gus is one of my favourite Bugaboo characters and I love this image and sentiment.  I have coloured him with my Spectrum Noir markers and added 3D Crystal Lacquer to his glasses and the numbers that have been cut out with my Die-namics By The Numbers dies - the zero is the same red as the rest of the card but for some reason my camera decided differently.


I have used Kraft card stock and some buttons that my Mum gave me - she is moving in with us soon and whilst sorting out her house we discovered a huge biscuit tin full of buttons, I don't think she can have ever thrown a single button away in all of her 80+ years, so I have plenty to play with now!

Our sponsors for this challenge are:

Ppinky Dolls - Prize 3 images
Just Inklined - Prize $10 GC
FaeryInk - Prize 3 images
Bugaboo - Prize 7 images
Tiffany Doodles - Prize 3 images

Please check the Craftng for all Seasons challenge blog for full details.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments Designs - Anything Goes
Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - Button Up
Top Tip Tuesday Challenge - 3 Of Something (Buttons)
Dream Valley Challenge 104  - Let's get Krafty
Little Claire's April Challenge - Use Kraft Card
Catch The Bug Weekly Challenge  - Earth Day - Recycle (Buttons) 

Thank you for calling this morning, make sure you pop over to the Craftng for all Seasons challenge blog and join in with our Milestone Celebrations challenge.
