The Engineer


What is going on??? Another day with two posts - obviously not enough housework being done :)  Hey, it will still be there tomorrow!!


For this card, I have used this great Mo Manning image - The Engineer. Doesn't this old guy look as though he is really enjoying himself.  I have coloured him with Promarkers and used Basic Grey papers for the card - I think they are from the Archaic collection (quite old).


The wording on the tickets came with a Bugaboo digi and the one on the base of the card is a Paper Artsy stamp.




I am entering this card into the following challenges:

I Love Promarkers  # 57 - Men's cards
Paper Pretties - Masculine card
Digi Doodle Shops Best - Anything goes
CES Challenges # 27 - Men only
Mo's Challenge # 74 - Lets hear it for the boys

Hugs to All
