Blue is the Colour

Hi Folks
Hope you are well and having a good week.  I love Wednesdays as it marks the half way point of my working week.  After Wednesday only another two days to the weekend.  It's not that I don't like my job but there are so many other things that I would rather be doing instead. I keep telling hubby to win the lottery for me but he just doesn't take any notice lol.
Anyway, another good thing about Wednesdays it that is sees the start of a new weekly challenge over at Dude Time Doodles.
We have a nice easy challenge for you this week:

Use 2 or more shades of blue

Simples, just upload your creations that use differing shades of blue.  Just remember that your project should be masculine in nature.  I am expecting to see lots of entries for this one.  The prize on offer is some free digis of your choice from the Dude Time Doodles store.  With so many fab images available you will be spoilt for choice.

Here is my inspirational piece for you to feast your eyes on.

As you can see I used this fab image (Waylon Waves) to create a little gift tag.  It is my nephew's birthday at the end of September and thought this would be great for his gift bag. Not sure where the papers are from as they were in my scraps pile.  He looks like he is having the time of his life riding the waves.  I added a peel off Happy Birthday sentiment and used some old string for the hanger of the tag.
To upload your entries just pop over to Dude Time Doodles challenge blog.  You can also check out the fab work of the rest of the Dudettes and Dude.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Allsorts - Anything but square
The Paper Shelter - Tag you're it
Sweet Stampin - Inspired by a song or film (Surfin USA - Beach Boys)
A Gem of a Challenge - A boy thing
The Crafty Pad - Anything but square
Cutie Pie - No flowers
Papertake - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by.
