Kaboodle Doodles Challenge # 16

Sorry for being late posting this card. I have just had a weekend I don't ever want to repeat. To cut a long story short my baby DD, Fizzy, decided to give me a heart attack by falling off a chair onto the hard kitchen floor and when I went to her she was motionless on the floor, white face and blue lips. Of course, panic set in and I phoned for an ambulance. Within minutes they were here and she was screaming the place down. Apparently when she fell she went into shock and this is a very normal way a child deals with shock ! - they could have told me. We then spent the rest of Saturday night checking her every ½ hour (panicky parents) only to be woken by her being sick the next morning and she ended up being really poorly yesterday and another trip to A&E where they said she probably had a tummy bug and it was just coincidence that two came together.

Anyway, she is back to climbing chairs now and hanging off the Christmas tree so she must be back to her old self !

Now for what I am really here for .......

This week on the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.....

"This week the challenge is all about Males, we would like to see a creation aimed towards boys and/or men. Ok so it is quite a difficult one this week, but we are nearly at the end of the year so we thought we would give you a challenge"

This is the card I made.....

The patterned papers are the Kaboodle Doodles All Star Kit available in the Kaboodle Doodles online shop.

I cut the stars on my Cricut and these are Core'dinations card. I doodled some stitching around the edge and added some BasicGrey letters and dabbed them with some silver ink.

The image is Edwin who I have coloured with ProMarkers.

The string and button are from my stash.

I hope that you can find a little time in between those last minute Christmas cards to come and play with us this week and I look forward to visiting your blogs.

Take care and have a fabby week. Thank you for taking the time to come and visit me !
