G'Day Cobber

Good evening and welcome to a post to announce the latest challenge at ATSM.
This week we are looking to see your projects that are -


The CAS week is one of my favourites but I always end up with far too many ideas bouncing around my head so for this card I took inspiration from the challenge over at Less is More.

This week their challenge is Down Under in homage to our wonderful leader Kylie who is sponsoring their challenge.
So when I saw this I had to take part. My first thoughts were Christmas on the beach but the more I thought about it the song by Men at Work - Down Under kept creeping in. At Muse this week Michele (I card everything) challenged us to make a card based on a song as well, so I loved the idea of doing something that related to this. I checked out the video of this 80's classic and saw a picture of the fried out Combie in the lyrics  and thought immediately of this image. I added the stereotypical greeting freehand and mounted the 'Combie' on a tag coloured blue at the top and with a sandpaper bottom. I know the old geezer isn't like the guy in the video but hey you can't have it all!

Over at ATMS, this week we are sponsored by

who are offering a $12 gift certificate to the winner.

So why not visit the rest of the DT and join in?

I'd like to join in over at -

    I love your "cobber" card! Please, what stamp company is it from?

    1. The image is a digital one from Dr Digi and the cobber greeting is freehand by me.
