Bugaboo Gus Fridge Magnet

Makes a change! A fridge magnet! Well, it was going to be a card, but I liked it so much I fancied being able to see it somewhere, and where do I always find myself a trillion times a day?...looking in the fridge for any choccy left overs!
I did have a mind to make a calender (with months and dates, not holes) using Gus and eleven of his friends... but was impatient to finish it, as I couldn't find any next year dates saved on my laptop... loads of 2009 and 2000 but no 2013! Might make one later.
Here's my fridge magnet. It's on my fridge so not a very bright picture. I've used Gus-tidbits-WTF in his garage. Now I've typed that, I have other ideas ~ garage doors...oil cans... nuts and bolts... spanners, with greasy bits too.... a man's card ...I'll make that one later too.
What did I do?? First, printed out the digi, made him the size I wanted him, copied him a few times, coloured him with ProMarkers... except the main image...the one with the green background. I just happened to have a few of Summer Driggs Scrapboook papers in my 'My Craft Studio' programme so picked the green to use as the 'wall' behind Gus. (Used Gus as a PNG) This paper comes from the set called Beautimous Kit and you can download it for free HERE (Stay awhile and leave some love!) I then cut different bits off Gus (he didn't mind!) His arms, his hair, left his ears! Also cut out extra tyres and the bin and 3D-ed them over the main image. I also added extra pages to the calender on Gus's wall, curled and ripped the top one.
On the back of the card I've fixed some magnet strips.
A quick reminder that Quirky Craft's 'Make as Laugh!' Challenge is still on, just! so there's still time to add your funny cards, if you're quick! It's sponsored by Bugaboo this time round and they have a 50% off sale at the moment!
New Followers!! Hi and a BIG {{~wave~}}} to Teresa, with a fabulous blog called Crafting all days cards with a link to her son's fabulous art work... would've joined his following but I hate having to put my date of birth (why?) coz I'm very old and cranky! And there was already a Spyder! Then there's Tabithgrace, no link, and out the back and in the dark I've found R.J. also with no link.
I've just spilt Crunchy Nut Cornflakes all over my keyboard! So that's it! Better unplug before I blow up! Hope you're not all scorched beetroot pink with sun stroke or up to your knobbly knees in muddy rain water!! Thank you for stopping by!
