Monster Birthday!

So, it's my brother-in-law-to be's birthday on Saturday, and I've managed to make 2 cards for him from DH & I and one from my littlies. The first was SO quick and easy to make, thanks to a great download by Debbie at Crafty Stash.

A simple case of layering up the pyramage, adding a name to the box and a little card-candy and there's even an insert included.
The second card was made using a Pollycraft digi called 'Beer Monster' which I have adapted to make a 'Coca Cola Monster!!'
 I coloured the image using my Promarkers, and the paper is a Pink Petticoat one (I bought this set a while ago and have used it so much, its great!) Some matting & layering, card candy (loving these atm!) ric-rac, a computer generated sentiment and a few tiny gems and voila!
 Oh yes, I also added his name to the T-shirt with some 3D stickers I've had for ages!

I'm going to enter this card (Monster Birthday) into the following challenges:
 Anything Goes Challenge blog, which is week #23, the letter 'B' 'B' is 'BIRTHDAY!'
Paper Sundaes challenge #42....'For the Boys.'
Paper Players challenge #22 'Anything Goes.'
Incy Wincy Designs challenge #66...'Anything Goes.'
Papertake Weekly Challenge 'Penny for the Guy' (male card.)
Thanks for popping by.
