One For The Boys at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Wow, the weeks seems to be flying by this year.  Already nearing the end of April.  My holiday to Turkey in June will be here before I know it lol.

Today I am here to share a little inspiration for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is
One For The Boys
We have two fab sponsors for this challenge:  Kenny K and Delicious Doodles.  Just pop by The Crafting Cafe blog for full details of the challenge and the prizes on offer.

I used a great image (Cool Trucker) from Kenny K for my inspiration project.

I coloured the image with promarkers before matting onto brown card.  I went around the edge of the image with some faux stitching.  The papers are from my scraps box so not sure who they are from.  The sentiment is from LOTV.  I added a wooden cog from Hobbycutz and some card candi as embellishments.

Thanks for popping by and hope you will join us at The Crafting Cafe.  You still have until the end of the month to join in the fun.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Without Words - Gentlemen only
Ditzie Digi Design - Anything goes
Whimsy Stamps - Anything goes
As You Like It - Real or faux stitching (love faux stitching as I don't own a sewing machine)
OSAAT - Use a digi

MAWTT - Use the word Happy
