Anything Goes at Here Come The Boys

The new challenge starting today at Here Come The Boys is everyone's favourite... Anything Goes, yay!!
Firstly though, I'd just like to thank everyone who entered the HCTB Birthday Blog Hop last time around and announce the WINNER of the prize on my Blog, the $10 Bugaboo Gift Voucher!  Drawn at random, the winner is..............

Random numbers generated May 26 2012 at 14:26:7 by 
so that's you KAREN, Congratulations............. email me (using the Contact Me details in the sidebar) and I'll get your $10 Bugaboo Gift Voucher out to you.
Now on to the new challenge.... Anything Goes - for a MALE, don't forget!
I've made a birthday card for my Uncle who is turning 80.  He's going through chemotherapy at the minute and isn't feeling much of a party animal, but he really will get the irony so it's the perfect image for him.  The Simon Says Challenge theme is For a Special Male, Stamping With The Dragon is Male Birthday Card, One Stop Craft Challenge is One For The Boys and the Allsorts Challenges is Happy Birthday to Someone Special... so I'm entering those.
The image is "Dick Van Duck Party Animal" from Just Inklined, he's been on my cyber shelf for an embarrassingly long time! It was nice to get him all coloured up and on show. Totally Papercrafts has Animals as its theme and Lisa has her Waste Not Wednesdays Stash challenge, so I'm entering those.  
I've coloured with Copics adding Stickles to his hat and party blower and Liquid Pearls around the image (Lisa's been doing this and I shamelessly copied, lol)  Di's Digi Designs has a Bling challenge, as does The Paper Shelter, so I'll be entering there too.
I've used the sketch from Craft Your Passion, you know I love a good sketch, and this IS a good sketch! The papers are digis from Shery K Designs... I've just found this site and OMG, I'm hooked.  There's loads of papers to choose from, lots with the "clean" look I like and all such good value too!  These are from the Party Time Mega pack - not my only purchase for the day I have to say!  Totally Gorjuss wants us to use Something New (stash etc) for their challenge, so I'm in, Sassy Cheryls Tuesday Challenge theme is Favourite Colour combination... I love any bright and clean combo (actually I can honestly say that I don't know a colour combo I don't like) so I'm in there too.  The red cardstock is American Crafts Weave, the piece behind the image panel is a lovely metallic textured card "Pebble" I got from my fave speciality paper store, Starfish Lane (birthday gift voucher from son Chris, thank you darling!)
I cut the stars using a MFT die, using two sizes.  The buttons are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.  The Pink Elephant has Buttons Galore as their theme, buttons tick, and Sweet Stampin' has Moon and/or Stars -stars, tick- I'm in :-)  The Bearly Mine Challenges  theme is Anything Goes, in there too!  Well that's it from Dick Van Duck and Donna.... do check out the rest of the Here Come The Boys Design Team's makes... then get crafting, cute stamp set as a prize and Anything Goes (for a male).... you'll never get an easier theme :-)  I'll be back in a day or so. Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
