They are all rock stars and continue to create amazing cards and projects to showcase our images and to inspire you all to create!
and they have kindly offered us 3 of their fabulous digi stamps as a prize, if you would like to visit their site and see exactly how easy and creative their stamps are. This fortnights Challenge is to create a card containing "Humour" and I sincerely hope that you will find my card contains this, Ive used this cheeky little chap, and of course it lends itself to any little lads birthday card.

Ive printed this image onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, after which Ive cut it out with a Square Nestabilitie die and used one of the new large scalloped ones for the mount, Ive used a green card for this and the sentiment was one I created on my computer and printed it off and mounted it in the same way as the image.
The card is a 7"x 7" white card with the first layer of green card and Ive used three papers from the Nitwit downloads, the first one is a icecream cone patterned paper and the second which Ive stuck down the centre is a green and blue striped check, Ive used the hole Martha Stewart border punch on it, and for my last paper Ive used a blue paper with a load of lollies all over it. Its a very simple card, but I hope its effective and does cause you a bit of a laugh. 
I did put some Snowtex on the icecream cone on top of the van, and a little bit of Glossy Accents on the musical notes, teeth and the eyes.
