Mr Fix-it

Hello all - back with a quick posting for a card I would like to enter into the current Teddy Bo challenge.  This week you have to make a masculine card and include string and button(s) - I like to keep cards for men as simple as possible but there's nothing wrong with a touch of cuteness too !



This little guy looks like he's ready to tackle anything, even though he does have a slightly worried look on his face.........



In my mind, he's a car mechanic hence the mini licence plate sentiment!  I used my Copics  - I know, huge shock - and also some papers from a Basic Grey kraft 6x6 pad and buttons and twine from my supplies.


I would also like to enter him into the following  -



Did you see the Olympics opening ceremony the other night?  I thought it was spectacular - I particularly enjoyed the Queen's entrance :)  The fireworks were wonderful and the whole lighting of the flame looked so special - loved it!!  Made me proud to be British and especially coming after the whole fantastic Diamond Jubilee  - sorry, just a bit of patriotic rambling........

Thanks so much for stopping by today :)

Fantastic colouring and a perfect card for a man!
I love the CAS style for men cards too, not always stick to it, but get carried away sometimes and overload even my masculine card with stash! lol
THIS is just fabulous!
Thanks for joining us at Teddy Bo this time and I really hope to see you again!
Hugs, Jill
