Calling all Brads! - oh I do like this challenge!!

Good morning all

Its another Wednesday which means I'm here with my DT card for Fab'n'Funky Challenges.

It's the turn of our lovely Ciska to host 
and she has come up with a wonderful theme

Calling all Brads!!

Now if you are me there's only one Brad that springs to mind - and you can pop on over to Fab'n'Funky Challenge blog to see him -definitely worth the visit - oh you have given us a treat this week Ciska!!!

The real point of the challenge of course is that you use brads on your project 
- me I like the other Brad 
(ha ha I sound like the gin lady on the Aldi tea advert - sorry to all you non UK ladies who haven't got a clue who the Aldi tea/gin lady is - such a funny advert!!)
Here's a youtube link

.....anyway I digress 
Here's my Brad card!

The image is Handyman from Kenny K available here

Our Fab sponsor this week is Kenny K who has provided the DT with some 
gorgeous digis to play with and is also providing a fab prize
5 digis to the winner - how great is that!

I knew I had those cute little screw brad and thats why I chose to use this image they're my favourite brads (well except for the other Brad lol) - I thought they were just perfect and also my little tool charms - no there's nothing wrong with your eyes - they're not on the card - I found snowmen, sunflowers, sunglasses, hearts and flowers and dozens of baby bib charms that didn't get used on my grandsons christening invitations (make me an offer anyone!)- but no cute little hammers and wrenches - I know they're there somewhere......grrr

This is what I did....

Image - Handyman from Kenny K
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Papers -(blue) LOTV Bear Neccesities and (wood effect) - MME Dolled up
Card - Bazzill Basics
Brads - Creative Expresions
Twine - MME
Sentiment and label - LOTV
Dies for sentiment - spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies

So bring out your Brads -we want to see more like these ( and especially like the one on the challenge blog) after all every girl needs a Brad!!!
