A new week, a new challenge at Cards For Men

Welcome to the latest challenge from Cards For Men.
  Challenge number 6 is sponsored by the fabulous....
The prize for this challenge, is three of Roberta's gorgeous images. You can see all her lovely digi images HERE.
The theme is 'Happy Birthday' . Easy Peasy!

Here's my card......... 
 I elected to use  'Morley Dancing' 'coz I love the image, I love winter cards and there are plenty of little chaps out there who celebrate their birthday on or around Christmas.
 I coloured Morley with my Copics and mounted him on circle Nestabilities.
The border was created with  a Martha Stewart punch. I made the polka dot background on the bottom layer of card by using one of my Peachy Keen polka dot stamps. They really are the best stamps for clarity and precision. ( I stamped that background three times and it looks continuous). This one is PK-101.

Just to show the contrast between Winter and Summer, I've made another using THIS delightful image also from Prairie Fairy called 'Summer Fun'.................. 
What wonderful memories of my boy's childhoods this image re-creates. Happy days.
Please pop on over to the Cards For Men blog and feast your eyes on the cards created by the DT (and a fabulous card from Roberta too). They are a joy to see.

The challenge is open until midnight GMT on the 28th March 2010 and the rules are.......
1. The card must be for a man or a boy
2. You need to follow the theme/sketch that is set.
3. It must be a new card.
Please leave your name and a direct link to your entry, (not just to your blog),  in Mr Linky on the Cards For Men blog.  If Mr Linky is not there for some reason, then leave the details in the comments section.
Thanks for calling by

Oh VIV! You cards are breathtaking. I love the way you embossed the image to look like snow with morley. When I saw your second card and read what you said about your memories I started to tear up as that image is my son and I feel the same as you. Your music playing in the background completed the moment. What a lovely start to my day!

Thanks so much!!!

Love how you used the pinking nestie to frame Morley and along with the other border punch. Great touch using the embossed dots as snow too. Great card. Second image is darling and wonderfully coloured. Lovely job on both :D
