Creative Knockouts Blog Hop!!!

Happy Thursday everyone! Welcome to Creative Knockouts! This is the new home of what was Dutch Dare Card Challenges. We are still the same wonderful DT and challenges....we just have a new name and blog!
This week we are doing a blog hop to showcase the new Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.
The theme this week is MASCULINE Cards.
Our sponsor this week is

If you've come from Caz, you are on the right track. If you'd like to join in, head on over to the DDCC blog and start hoppin'!

Finish:Creative Knockouts
 I have a little something for the Craftin' Darlin' who leaves me a comment and becomes a follower of both the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog and mine. It's a GC for Saturated Canary digi's, and who doesn't love Saturated Canary??? I will draw this on September 15th! So be sure to check back to find out who won!!

Now anyone who knows my blog, knows I do Cute...hence the blog name...well that and I'm only 5'2- So cute is what I do!! ;o)
Masculine cards not so much....They are so out of my realm...I have to hold off on the glitter, bows and all that cute, sweet stuff. It's TOUGH!! hahaha. 

Well without further is my card for this week:

 I got to work with Anglin' Andy and I have to say he is just too cute...look how proud he is!!

I did have a lot of fun coloring him and Mr. Fishy (of course I named the fish!!).

I colored Andy and Mr. Fishy with SN markers. Both Andy and Mr. Fishy got Glossy Accents on the glasses and was the one embellie I just had to have (well that and Buttons)!! But they work for this card!! Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it! ;o)

 I used Kraft CS and the DP's I got in a craft fair for $0.25!!! Yes... you read that right..only $0.25!! But it means I don't have the brand. :o( The sentiment was made in word and punched with my Marvy Circle Punch.

The inside I did up with the same DP and CS that was used on the front.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to leave me some love and become a follower to be eligible for my prize draw. You should now head over to Maria's Blog to check out her creation this week and continue on the Creative Knockouts Blog Hop!

Happy Hoppin' and stay Crafty!
