Hi all - I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!  Steve and I are off for trek at Birling Gap on the south coast of England tomorrow with the dogs.  We'll come back tired and aching, but it will be lovely to spend hours chatting and watching the dogs run around - it's gonna be great!  And a spot of pub food will be very welcome too!

Anyhoo, today's card uses this fun Pollycraft's Beer Monster - isn't he fun?

I am entering him into Karen's Doodles challenge for masculine cards and Pollycraft's Critters and Cogs challenge to use one of their critters or cogs and colour them in your favourite colour.  Of course, my fave is orange and I teamed it up with my other fave colours of green and blues.  Although I'm seeing a lot of pink in my cards recently - I blame that Pinky!

That's it from me today!  Hope your day is going to be as good as mine!

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, American Crafts Sixth Avenue papers
Stamps: Pollycraft Beer Monster, CC Designs sentiment inside card
Mediums: Copics, Distress Ink Pumice Stone
Accents: clip, brands and string from stash, computer printed sentiment, sisal ribbon (from Bunny Zoe's here)
Tools: EK Success swiss cheese border punch, Tim Holtz distressing tool, Nestabilities label die (inside card)
