Cute Card Thursday "Buzz Off!"

This week over on the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog we have a theme of "Buzz Off!". Now we don't want you to go away, we want you to use the colour combo of Black & Yellow. We are sponsored this week by Kathe of . We are also joined by a new Guest DT Member....Carole of StarDust Gems and Ribbons.

Just as I was about to make my card this week, I was asked by a friend to make a card for a teen boy. Now we all know how hard male cards are...let alone teens. So I pulled out my trusty Darkroom Door stamps and set about making a music themed card. I have coloured the guitar with copics using Y17 & Y38 for the shading. The papers are Rusty Pickle "Pop Star" (you know the ones you can colour yourself) and I used some Bazzill Cardstock and some shimmery yellow cardstock that came in a really old Jenni Bowlin' kit, so I have no idea who the manufacturer is.
Now as boys don't like ribbons and gems (two of my favourites) I used a treble clef paperclip that I got from Staples and some string that I got in Ikea.

Overall I am pleased with the results and I just hope the person who asked me to make it likes it too.

I am so looking forward to the weekend as I am off to Ally Pally with Marlene for some stash I need more really. There are a few things I am hoping to get, but I am trying to keep the list short...although I have already placed an order for collection with ScrapShed....but that doesn't count in my spending money...right!!!! This will also be the first time Marlene has seen me crafting back in my craft room, and although the room still needs more sorting, I am much happier crafting back upstairs. David has also agreed to get Sky Multiroom so that I can have it in my Craft Room as I like to have the TV on in the background.

Anyway, back to this weeks sure to check out the rest of the DT's cards for inspiration. I don't think any of us have used the same manufacturer.

Hi Caz,
Great card, I've often looked at these stamps but not actually bought them yet but I think they'll be on my list for ally pally after seeing your creation.
Look forward to seeing you at the weekend!!

Fabulous card Caz, so perfect for a teenage boy! Funny, I like absolute silence in my craft room! We are all so different! I reckon its because my house is so noisy and i craft when the kids are at school, the silence is golden! hugs Debx
