Chubby Birthday...

Good morning!  It's going to be a great week - my boss is away until next week - yipppppppeeeee!  Oh, and in case he is reading this:  you're the bestest boss in the whole wide world ;)

It's also Halloween.  I know I might be unpopular, but I don't like Halloween.  The only thing that makes it worthwhile is the candy that we eat prior to handing out **heehee*.  We don't have children, so we can't appreciate Halloween from that point of view and our dog HATES when the doorbell rings.  Good thing I have my husband - he loves to hand out candy to all the little trick-or-treaters :)

Shame on me, right???

So today, of all days, you might see a Halloween card being posted - nope LOL.

Today's DT Challenge: The theme at StampFairy Challenge is a sketch.

I love playing with sketches - such a great way to be inspired.

I have had this little guy Chubby Handyman for a while and knew he would look great with a bit of my crafty stash.  Unfortunately I had to cut the hammer out of the digi because it didn't go with all the screws and nuts and bolts.  I suppose I should have gotten Chubby with the screwdriver hey?

Wow - that was a mouthful.  Looks like I am in a talkative mood today :S

Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi;  Autumn Leaves and DCWV papers;  Bazzill and Recollections cardstock;  Copics;  We R Memory Keepers Limeade baker's twine; Doodlebug Designs button;  Recollections Silver Screw brads.

I made this Chubby birthday card for the following challenges:  Birthday Sundaes - birthdays;  Ruby's Rainbow Challenges - metal;  Art Impressions - card for a young boy;  The Squirrel and the Fox - hats

And I mustn't forget to show you the StampFairy sketch:

For all of you who do celebrate Halloween - please enjoy and be safe.

Stay crafty,
Deanne :)

Such an adorable card!! I love Chubby. He is just too cute. I had to check him out. I will have to get the collection. I make birthday cards for the mechanics I work with, so they will come in handy. I love the paper you used and the wonderful accent the green provides. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Birthday Sundaes.
