Penny's Paper-Crafty new challenge and DT call

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  First day back at work today after the extended bank holiday and boy did it go slow. Just couldn't seem to get myself going.  But only another two days and then it's the weekend.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty challenges.
Before I get onto the challenge itself we are having another DT call.  Sadly, a couple of members have stepped down from the team so we are looking for some new blood.  Why not pop over to Penny's and check out the details.  We welcome all abilities and styles of crafting so why not apply.

Now onto the new challenge for this fortnight which is
as it is Fathers Day in the UK on June 17th.

We have three wonderful sponsors for this challenge:
Robyns Fetish with 5 free images of your choice  
Digi My World with a $10 voucher  and
Eye Candie Creations with 4 free images of your choice.
So what are you waiting for, get creating.  The challenge is not just limited to Dad creations.  Any masculine project is welcomed.

For my card today I used an image from Eye Candie creations.

For the fab pint glass image I coloured it in promarkers, cut it out and matted it onto a die cut oval.  I added glossy accents to the outside and the handle (glass effect hopefully) and added flower soft to the froth to give some texture.  The backing paper I found in my stash and was just perfect to go with the image. Added some ribbons and buttons across the centre, lots of pearls and the two sentiments.
If you pop over to Penny's you can check out the awesome work of the rest of the DT.  Looking forward to seeing all your creations.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Jellypark - Boy Crazy
Pile It On - Put a button on fathers day
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Lots of layers
LEJ Designs - Button it

Take care.
