Beach Bum Bob - CK #43

Hi my friends!  I hope you are all enjoying a fabulous week.  We've been having rain everyday, but lucky it's over by the time I leave the office to go home.

Later today I have to be at home to have a window repairman come.  Seems that the window in my back door got broken by a stone or something kicked up by the yard man's weedeater.  :(  He will be paying for the repair.  You would NOT believe how much they want just to replace the glass.  It costs more than buying a new door which I would have done except then it would cost me that much more to have it installed.

Now I have a card to share with you.  The theme is to create a masculine card and I wasn't sure exactly what I was going to do with this image.  I kind of had something in my mind for it and luckily I was able to pull some dp out of my stash and put it all together.  I think it's a little funky, but I really like it.
The image is from Dr. Digi and is called Beach Bum Bob which I printed on Xpress It Blending Card and then fussy cut it out.  The card base is Stampin Up Bordering Blue.  The dp, sentiment, and palm tree are all from my stash.  The surfboard is a sticker from the same collection as the dp.  It was really hard not to put some kind of ribbon on this, but I refrained.

Copic Markers:  B0000; B91, B93, B95; E17, E31, E34, E35, E37, E42, E47, E49, E50; Y13, Y15, Y26; YR02, YR04, YR07

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Dr. Digi and they are having an awesome sale right now.
 Check out all the work the DT has created this week over at Creative Knockouts and then I hope you'll join in the fun.
