Buttons! - who'd have thought they were like buses!!

Good morning all

I'm back today with my DT card for

Who'd have thought it - two button it days in a row
None for ages then two come along at once - just like buses!

so yet again the theme is 

Button It!

and you'll be really proud of me!
 - I even remembered to put buttons on this one  

I had a card to make for one of our best friends - we've all been friends since we were at school and my DH has known him since he was eleven years old - in other words a looong time lol.

As well as this his birthday is just two days before my husbands - they even had a joint 40th birthday party, just like two kids! And for years now we have gone on a weekend away to celebrate this auspicious occasion - never very far - just a nice hotel within 50 or so miles of home and this time we're also going to the theatre to see One Man - Two Guv'nors, I don't know much about it but apparently its very funny and starred James Corden when it was in the Westend so we're sure to have a laugh - we always do

Anyway - I usually make a cheeky card for our friend
and this years no exception!

I used this image called  'Derek Dunderton' from Dr Digi's house of Stamps available here
I love this character - he fit's the bill for so many male cards in his various guises, Check him out in the Dr Digi shop - he's a man of many talents - along with his lovely wife!!  I just love colouring these images too
 - the way they're drawn is great 

While I was there I noticed they had some sheets of sentiments and so that's where this cheeky sentiment came from too - there's loads of others so you might just see some others soon

Here's what I did....

Image - Derek Dunderton from Dr Digi's House of Stamps
Sentiment -  from Dr Digi's House of Stamps sentiments sheet
Birthday wishes sentiment from Anna Griffin
-stamped with red gold Tsukneko brilliance - I love how it turned out!
Coloured with copics and black prismacolour pencil for shading
Papers - LOTV candles and cake (I think!)
Die cut - fishtale flags from MFT
Die cut - banners from Whiff of Joy
Buttons from my stash
Twine from MFT

I hope you'll come and join in the fun at MAWTT challenge this week - my teamies have put buttons all over the place! - so check out the challenge blog
