Another new challenge from Charisma

Something for the guys is the theme of this week's challenge at Charisma Cardz. I don't do nearly enough cards for boys or men so it always is a bit of a challenge for me, not only to come up with an idea but also to find a suitable image. The folder where I keep printouts of most of my collection of digi's is probably ninety five percent full of girlie images, however I did find this cute Teddy Bo image amongst them so it was the obvious choice given the kind of weather the UK has been having this week!
I coloured the image with Promarkers, doodled around the edges and added some vintage buttons and ribbon from my stash - hope the weather is better wherever you are today :o)

Lovely! Love the image and sweet design. Thanks for joining us in our sentiment challenge at the BMC challenges this week.

Hi Jenni, your card is gorgeous, and very cute, but as our Childhood Memories theme is a "no digi" one, unfortunately it won't be eligible for our random draw or top 3 for this fortnight. Hope to see you again next time.

Bye the way, I've just been to look at your sock monkeys which I spied at the top of your sidebar and they are GORGEOUS! What age are these suitable for, may I ask? I could see my little grandson with a collection of these, lol.
