Totally Gorjuss 68 Check it out.

Hi everyone, doesn't Saturday come round really quickly every week. Pity there weren't more Saturdays and  Sundays in a week. Probably not that good an idea I suppose.  After all lots of people have to work at the weekend. I work almost every Saturday, but at least it's just the morning.

So it's time for another challenge at Totally Gorjuss. You seemed to like our "Love" challenge last week. We  had lots of entries and saw some amazing cards when I visited your blogs. If you haven't been over to the challenge blog yet remember to pop over to see who's won the prize from Crafter's Companion.

This week we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and I'm sure you know that they have a vast stock of goodies. If you haven't checked out their online shop yet you don't know what you've been missing.

Well this week our challenge is "Check it out." We'd like to see checks somewhere on your card or project. It could be DP, ribbon, whatever you like. I love checks and ginghams so I enjoyed this challenge.

Here's my card.

I made this for my son-in-law who's in car sales. And no he's not a dodgy salesman lol! He's a hard working honest guy who wouldn't sell you a bad car. Funnily enough my daughter was in car sales too and that's how they met. She has a different job now close to home as it's easier for her with two kiddies.

I used :-
Image :- LOTV cute square.
DP :- Wild Rose Studio and Craft Creations.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Bakers' Twine :- The Ribbon Girl.
Ribbon and button from stash.

It was a bit lazy of me to use a cute square as I have this image in rubber too but I've had a lot  to do this week. Some days the pups are quite time consuming! And I had to go off to Aberdeen and get a present for my son-in-law. His birthday is next week and my husband is the day after. Not sure what he's getting, maybe some new jeans that actually fit him! Mmmm like I've got space to talk.

I'd like to enter the following challenges :-
Sketch and Stash :- Sketch and the Bakers' Twine is new stash.
Lili of the Valley :- Red & blue are my favourite colours for male cards.
Cards for Men :- 1 image, 2 DP & 3 embellishments (1 ribbon, 1 button and Bakers' twine.
Pile it on :- For the love of plaid.

Hope you like and maybe you could spare a minute to tell me what you think. Do take a minute to pop over to the blog and see the gorgeous work  from my teamies this week.

Thanks for looking and I'll catch up with you all later.
