Mo-vember

 November is being touted as Mo-vember - the month of the moustache, or maybe its just an excuse not to bother with the shaving gear and have that saved time for an extra few minutes snooze in the morning.
Now, Facial Topiary really doesn't do it for me at all, but each to their own, eh?
So  anyway it's Samm's turn to set the dare over on the Daring Cardmakers and this is such a fun one - as you might have guessed from my intro we've a Moustachio challenge  this week - and I reckon that "on a card" is just the best and most fun place to see a moustache!
The BLOG looks fab, so please check out what the girls have been doing this week.
I've had my card made for a few weeks.....no I'm not really a Mrs Swotty-Knickers, its just that I'd spotted and saved an image ages ago that would be perfect for my pizza-loving cousin's birthday card, and then Samm added her challenge to our calendar and Bob's your uncle, or Colin's your cousin....
 The image is from a free colouring page I found on the net and converted in PSP to cut on my Craft Robo.  Contact me if you'd like a copy of the template.
By chance I'd just taken delivery of a paper pad with the moustache paper in - how fortuitous was that then!
Materials:
Brown 14cm sq card blank Papers all from Echo Park "Times and Seasons 6x6 pad, White, Peach, Brown and Black card, Glossy Accents
Tools:
Craft Robo, Promarkers, Nesties Circles die
I had a great time making this and its such a fun idea for a challenge - just the thing to have a bit of a laugh with, so I'm hoping lots of people will join in and have some Moustache Madness with their cards this week.
Anice of Funky Hand is celebrating her birthday with a 43% off sale today - I'm sure you can guess why that odd number!  Check out the Fabulous Funky Bargains HERE

 This time last week we'd just arrived at the venue for our Segway Rally Racing "experience".  It was fun!  I didn't bother with the "racing" bit and just concentrated on getting round the twisty, bumpy circuit safely - round and round I went - apparently all of the others fell off at least once but I stayed on.  And then as we were just standing around at the end I got too close to hubby's segway, wheels met and off I fell.  We set off again this time going as fast as we could back over the field to where we'd left our stuff, and blow me if I didn't come a cropper again, this time landing flat on my face.  Oh the indignity of it all! hahaha
 I'm going to try to catch up on my blog-hopping over the weekend as it's been ages since I had a good old ramble around to see what everyone is up to, but for now, I can't put it off any longer; back to my Christmas Card Making week I go, thanks for visiting today
