Pete the Plumber

The theme for Stamps R Us Challenge for the next two weeks is Men in our Lives &/or Masculine. Dude Time Doodles is the sponsor & this image is Pete the Plumber.  Let me tell you, the design team had fun with this one... it just 'cracked' us all up!  Anyway, it was good fun so be sure to check out the rest of the team's cards... they are fab 'man cards' & the images at Dude Time Doodles are perfect for guy cards.
The sentiment is computer generated & the brads & twine are from the stash.  I 'just happened' (I guess I fibbed a bit when I said I was going to use my stash first) to buy a new pad of paper last time I went shopping & it is a huge pad of 180 sheets called Complete Boy by My Mind's Eye.  The colouring was done with Copics.
Challenges:
One Crazy Stamper - Boys & Men
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - One for the Boys
Cards for Men - Circles (the buttons & brads)
Scrappy Frogs - Anything Goes
Photobucket
