Tag it!

Hi again, just like buses nothing for ages then 2 come along at once! This card's my DT inspiration for the new challenge at Fab 'N' Funky , the theme was chosen by the lovely and talented Pat K and is 'to make a tag, or add one' and we're sponsored this week by the amazing Dr Digi!
As you can see, I'm still concentrating on making these male themed cards, this one's for my brother! As soon  as I saw this handsome hunk I knew I had to use it on Andy's card... he's such a huge fan of a cup of tea, although not so sure he'll be impressed with Weekend Walter! 
I kept the design very simple because I printed the image fairly large. The mug border was made by enlarging just the mug and printing it out times (I had to draw the handle), colouring with copics, fussy cutting and attaching to the card with sticky pads. The little tag was cut using a sizzix die and attached with a little heart brad.
Thanks so much for calling, don't forget to pop by Fab N Funky Challenges to see what Team Funky have created for you this week, of course we'd be delighted if you decide to tag along!
Have a lovely day!

Kathleen said...

FANTASTIC, love it, especially they way you have repeated the mugs of tea, I have this image and it went down really well with the recipient and it was nowhere near as good as this, so this should go down a storm.
