You'll have to read all about the TPT challenge this week on the forum or on Cindy's glob to see why this is a Booby Prize card. Well, it's really a booby prize because I wanted to make Ruby one of Ellen Hutson's high-heeled shoes in black and white polka dots with a purple ribbon on it. But my first one went into the bin, and as I am cooking, packing and cleaning ready for leaving for a holiday tomorrow, I took the easy option and made a card for my nephew, inspired by that great teapot. Snoopy's bike even has a polka-dot saddle.
A2 card, purple Core'dinations, and then some green embossed with Spots and Dots, and then sanded. The image was stamped on white card and coloured with H2Os, with the edges sponged with black. I added a Dymo name tag, and some large copper eyelets through a few of the spots and dots. Hope this is masculine and macho enough for Swoop! Could be dangerous, that's for sure.
And as I've been making fruit cake and Mars Bar slices for taking away, I'll make sure Snoopy and Woodstock bring some along to the party. Sorry I won't be around to leave comments....

Hey there Sabrina! Thanks so much for making a sample card this week! Your card is precious and will be a big hit with Kevin, your *pre-teenager* (Yikes!)......
I hope you have a wonderful week away, have fun, and we know you will be with us in spirit as we ride the turtles, glass boats and whale sharks in our very best shiny shoes! Giggle!
Your card will be a big hit and I say once again, anyone that can make a teapot card that they can actually send a non-teapotter is one talented lady! Isn't this the two characters that saved the snails when we raced the Tour de France? Me thinks so! Have fun.....and thank you!!!

Speed away from the madness, go quickly Sabrina! With purple, green, and polka dotted booby talk a flying, this could get seriously out of control! I LOVE your Snoopy card with the dots and the retro letter type thingie (I NEED one of those!!)...perfect for your nephew!

This is a great masculine card - I think it would be good for anyone really. The textured backgrounds are awesome. I love that biker image - so cute, but not too cute for a teen. The teapot colors showed up so different on my home computer than here at work (shhhh, don't tell I've been peeking from work today!). I was thinking blue all the way for that bird, but now I see violet - you've got them both!!! Love it. Hope you have a great trip.
