AAA Cards Challenge #67

Hello there friends, are you ready for another new challenge from
AAA Cards CAS Challenge
This one's a really fun idea especially if like me you go overboard
on cute little critters! I just can't resist those sets even if I've few people
to send them to these days!!!
So we'd like to see you use Googlie Eyes!
Here's my card which has already gone to my daughter's boyfriend to 
wish him luck with the A'Levels that they've been sitting this month!

I've used the Little Fella set from Paper Smooches along with a Frame die also 
from Paper Smooches. The 'Good Luck' is from Uniko: Simply Said and the 
'gritty spray' is from Stampin' Up: Need for Speed. The image is coloured with 
Promarkers and the grid stencil is My Favourite Things - Oh and Googlie Eyes 
from my stash of them!!!

I'd like to link this card up at Timeout Challenges where it's
'Masculine with optional twist of mixed media'

Not being a specialist in mixed media I'm not sure whether my
stencilling, googlie eyes and foam mounted frame qualify for the 
optional twist but it's certainly a masculine card!

I was having so much fun with this set from Paper Smooches that I couldn't
resist making another card too ...

this time with a watercolour background using Zig Clear Brush pens
and a splattering of white paint using the Gansai Tambi watercolours.
The sentiment 'Hey Dude' is from the Paper Smooches set and the 
'Happy Birthday' is from Uniko: Simply Said

I'd like to add this one to the CASology challenge where it's 
a masculine theme for this week and here in the UK it's Father's day 
so very best wishes to any Dad's out there who may be reading my blog!

As always we've got plenty more inspiration over on the main AAA Cards
blog HERE plus a super guest designer and one of our previous winners;
Patti of Stationery Styles. She's got some fantastic designs on her blog so
 I hope you'll pop along and leave her some love.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Stampendous

I hope you'll play along with this one and have some fun!
Thanks as always for calling by and I'll be back soon.
