Cool Dudes - Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Thank you everyone who took part in last weeks challenge, it was a bit more tricky than normal but we had some amazing entries from you, thanks for joining us. This weeks challenge is not quite so difficult so please join Penny Black Challenge again, we do love see all your fab creations. There are some great cards from my Fellow DT members as usual on the blog, This weeks challenge is
STARS and STRIPES
this week we would like to see stars and stripes on your project and as always it is entirely up to you what you make - a card, ATC, altered art just as long as it features at least one Penny Black image.
This week the prize is sponsored by
FUNKY HAND and is their latest download called MINTY MADNESS


Another boys card from me this week, The image has been colourd with ProMarkers, I am begining to enjoy using these great pens now, I have used SU CS in Navy and Red to layer up the stripe papers which are from a download from "Nitwits" Cool Dude collection. The star brads are from stash, I think I got them from Lakeland.

I would like to say a great big thanks for all the concern you have expressed for Mum, fortuntely she is not physically ill, she has Alszhimers and her bad days are not bad for her, but very tiring for me, but I am lucky she has more good days than bad and sometimes the old Mum can be recognised. Since I started blogging I feel as if I have made some wonderful friends and your lovely comments and virtual company keep me going so a great big thank you to all of you xxxx

Hi Jacqui,great boys card,love the image and the papers you have used.
On the mom front,sorry to hear your mom as Alszhimers,sometimes i feel this is far worse than being physically ill,especially for the carer,it can be hard work,upseting and frustrating at times,so you look after yourself,your mom needs you...
Have a good weekend,
Take care

Hi Jacqui your use of these promarkers is fab, my FIL has Alzheimers and my son has Aspergers (a form of autism) so I know where you are coming from. This blogging lark makes you want to carry on doesn't it (bl**dy shame that the people we know and see aren't as caring!!!!) Have a restful weekend and look forward to seeing your next WOW!

Love this Jacqui. It's a propere boy's card xxx Oooh I am sorry to hear about your Mum. It must be rotten for you at times - quite wearing xxx Wish I lived closer if only to take you out for a cuppa and a natter occasionaly. Aww big hugs for you both xxxx

Chris said...

Hi Jacqui, I'm sorry to read about your Mum having Alszhimers, it's the most awful disease, though as you say, worse for the person doing the caring. My thoughts are with you and your Mum and I think you have my email from a while ago if you ever want to chat. You take care of yourself too Sweetie. Your PB card is fab, love those funky little boys and the great papers too. Big Hugs, Chris xxx
