Check it out

Good morning again. 
If you are looking for my CuM post please click here.
It's going to be a busy day here on my blog as I will be back later on to share another card in the STAMPlorations Blog Hop!
Any road, as its Tuesday it must be time for a new challenge at Cardz4Guyz, where we aim to show you that making cards for the men in your life is not as tricky as you may think!
This week out theme is -

Use Checks or Gingham

Yep, we want to see lots of checks on your projects, be they be of the gingham or plaid variety, just make them the star of your card. Here is my take.

My staring point for this card was the latest sketch over at Sketch Saturday.

Once I'd seen the sketch I flicked through my stamps for a suitable image  but then thought of this freebie from a mag ages ago, The three wise monkeys- Hear no Evil, See no Evil, Speak no Evil. I'd already printed them out for a previous challenge then not used them, I coloured the monkeys with Copics then fussy cut and mounted them on pads. The check DP was from the stash, a really old bit from 10 years ago, I'm really being ruthless using up my DPs, mainly 'cos the ink on the printer is running out! The words came with the image and the inside has the rest of the sentiment. 'Your secret is safe with me.' I suppose if you used a different DP it would be suitable for a female as well.

OK, that's it, now it's your turn, check out (sorry) the rest of the DT's inspiration and join in!

I'll join the fun over at -
