DT Card for Lexi's Creations Challenge #54- One for the Lads

DT call at Lexi's Creations, we are looking for a some new members for the Design Team. Just add DT to your name when posting  if you wish to be considered!!

New challenge over at  Lexi’s Creations   with the theme of  One for the Lads'; challenge will run from NOV 28th - DEC10th, 2011. Thanks to everyone who played along with us for the last challenge 'No Straight Edges'  and hope you will join us for this one - One for the Lads!  The little fellow  I used as the main image is from 'The Stamping Bazaar'  (our guest sponsor). Isn't he just grand, cute as a button. I coloured him with Prismacolor markers and attached him to a Triangle Treat Box I had made out of some Stampin' Up  Card Stock. I had no little treats for the pictures, but one of my stepdaughters was on hand with  Little Latte sweets. As the Triangle box will going to her grand child I promised to have different treats, not coffee related, in it come Christmas time :). I used twine in place of ribbon to  tie the top closed.
