TLT - Tam's Challenge - Big Birthday

I know I know...I said I'd be back with pictures of the wedding but if you had seen what I've been up to this past week you would be crying with exhaustion but I'll tell you more about that later...PROMISE!

Today's TLT challenge is brought to you by our one and only Tam's which is Big Birthday's. I'll let you in on a little secret...she's going to celebrate a BIG birthday tomorrow but shhh don't tell anyone ;-D

All the Ladybugs are using a new image today...just a taster of what's to come. He's called Beer Belly Man and he's been illustrated by a good friend of mine Gayle Cook aka Mrs Teddy Bo! I received an email from Gayle about 18 months ago ( it turned out we only live 10 minutes from each other) and we became firm friends. I just wish I had an ounce of her illustrating talent...she makes it looks so easy.

You'll be able to purchase Beer Belly Man from today for £1.50...I can see him being used for umpteen occasions for those tricky male cards we all seem to drag our heels with.

I decided on 50 for my big birthday (scarily enough mine isn't far off hmph!) I sized BBM quite small, cut him out and used foam pads to stick him to the card

I think he's definitely enjoyed a beer or two lol

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Lexi's Creations - For the men/boys in our lives
Make It Monday - Anything Goes

All the winners from the Things With Wings challenge have been posted on the Challenge Blog so make sure you check to see if you're one of them. There's a prize of £10 to spend in the LCI store for the overall challenge winner AND £10 to the winner using an LCI image and of course there's the Top 3.

Ok that's it from me for today...going to sort through the wedding pictures for my next post!!

Thanks for stopping by

Catch ya later x

Great card, I love the image... can see a lot of use for him :-) I like that you scaled him down too - it turns the fifty into the BIG Five-Oh!! Thanks for joining in the Here Come The Boys challenge, good luck and hope to see you next time too, Donna ☺
