Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge #26 DIY ......

Hello, how are we today ? I am so excited to tell you i have been asked to join Cardz 4 Guyz as a guest designer for July ( doing a happy dance) My regular visitors now that i am quite strange, and I love to make cards for the men in my life, so this is a dream Gig. Challenge #26 has the theme of  DIY. This card is a homage to my Bob, who is my best friend, a loving dad and hard worker. BUT when it comes to painting and decorating he is a walking disaster. Do you remember when you could buy a tray of sold emulsion for painting ceilings back in the 80's. Bob slipped off the ladder and dumped the whole lot on the new sofa which he had not covered, while i was at work !

Material I used to make my card.
8" White card blank
Solid card stock American Crafts
Polka dot paper American Crafts
Stamp set and sentiments are quite old, i think they were by Papermania, i bought years ago at The Paper Mill Shop
Dies, quickutz paint can and tool box
Spellbinder circle, and do-crafts urban circle.
Grapg'it markers 4115, 4155, 3125, 9100, 9102, 9103, 4170, 3170
Dotty ribbon and card candy from my stash.

Challenges I have entered into.
Graph'it Color Challenge. The theme for challenge #26 is any thing goes but you must use an Alcohol marker, they would like you to used Graph'it but you are welcome to use other brands.
Crafting By Design Challenge Blog. The theme this time is to use a die cut on your project.Were would we be if we did not have a die cutting machine, i know you can buy die cit shapes but not the same. My first machine was a Bigshot and i still love it 6 years on.
