Bugaboo cards.....men are like fine wines and Gus demands a recount

I love a card with a bit of humor , I think men especial like a card that makes them smile. My brother always sends me a rude retro style card for my Birthday  ...you know the ones ....and my Mum never gets it! or maybe she is being polite . I treated my self to some great bugaboo digi stamps, the images are great and the sentiments just make you laugh.

My red card :
This image features the formidable Stella and is called "men are like fine wines ", I've coloured her with promarkers. My background paper is from a "6x6" pad by first editions called "Neroli" , it's gorgeous , beautiful textures in shades of red, white and blue.  The only embellishment is a grape vine button (back removed and the grapes coloured with a  wine coloured  promarker). A few blobs of modge podge on the glasses adds a touch of dimension.

challenges entered :
clear it out challenge : red
tiddly inks : primary colours
open minded crafting : monochrome

My Gus card :
Gus demands a recount coloured with promarkers . I think he looks cute in his colourful dungeries! The double sided paper is by first edition and is called boho chic. I've added some coloured buttons and modge podged the glasses. Tim Holtz rusty hinge ink on the edges.

I'm going to a funeral shortly , a man from church , he built lots of houses around little Sutton and was a long serving member of the Methodist church. He was 79 and lost his wife only recently, least they shall be together again. I helped him run an under 10's club at the church when my son was young, he always loved children . Rest in peace Tony Hall.

These are great fun cards, Jane! I do love Stella and Gus and the sense of humor with the sentiments that come with them!
I like your clean design for Stella - it lets her and the sentiment be the focus of the card. And your Gus design is so cheerful!

Two fabulous cards Jane, I love the Bugaboo humourous images. I used that Gus image and sentiment on a card for my husband but the boy's wouldn't let me give it to him! I love the colours and design you have used.
