I Demand A Recount!!!!!!

It's my BIL's Birthday on Saturday and he's fifty so I wanted a fun image for him. I have seen these images a few times when I visit Coops & Gaynor from Bugaboo and think they are fab so I decided to to purchase a few of the fun images.

This is Gus isn't he just gorgeous my DH's knees are just like these!!! lol Coloured with pro markers and then shaded around the image with my chalks can't remember the last time I used them but I think it has given a great effect.

More papers craft the Cosmo Cricket stash I found its just yummy and loads of it!!

Added an extra sentiment but didn't do it very big as he may be a little touchy about the bit 50!!

Buttons and twine to finish it off. I love it and even my DH laughed though it was a great image and that's a good sign cause he either says oh that's the best card you have ever made or why do you use dead people!!!!! He's not keen on quite a few of my stamps!! lol
I am entering this into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine - Spots
Gingerloft - Birthdays
2 Sisters - Spots & Dots
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Lots of Green
Craft Your Days Away - Men/Boys Buttons

Cards for Men - Cheeky Chappie

Well I'm of to play with my Easter Stamps for a bit then will be commenting.

Hope you have a lovely evening.

Love Chanelle xx

Thank you Channelle for your lovely message on my “Monday,Blues post ” when I went to look after Mum and Dad . It was so kind of you and I was overwhelmed by your kindness.
Dad is much better now, he has a recurring abscess , but a course of anti-biotics seems to do the trick. Sadly Mum had a massive stroke 4 years this May and will never be fine, she is unable to move or speak , but she can communicate by facial expressions, Dad is her carer , she has 4 x2 carers visits per day. So when Dad gets poorly I have to step to care for them both. Thank you again for your kindness. I am now back and on track . Hugs Elaine
