Chocolate, Coffee & Cards – Yipes! Stripes!

Hello! Yes, I’m back again. Are you sick of me yet? (Don’t answer that!) J

I’m here today with my DT make for the new challenge starting over on the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards challenge blog and our theme this fortnight is Yipes! Stripes!
 Our sponsor this time is:
My card today features one of their fab images called All Tied Up and he is available in rubber and as a digi here.  Loved working with him. He has such a great face. And such a great selection of ties!

I made this card for my brother Richard’s birthday, as he has a bit of an aversion to ties! Hope he gets the joke!

Basic Ingredients:
Dies:  Sizzix ‘Fancy Labels’ Framelets – Tonic Nesting Squares (to make the corners)
Paper/Card: American Crafts – Neenah Dessert Storm – LOTV ‘Father Knows Best’ 
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir Markers 
Others: Card Candi – die-cut sentiment from Kanban
Hopeless Hand drawings: None! You lucky people!

I hope you will join us at the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards challenge.  Surely everyone has something stripy in their stash! Check out the blog for all the wonderful DT inspiration and get all stripy!

Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
