Sweet & Sassy digi challenge- Hip to be square

Good morning, happy weekend!
Its hubby's birthday so I will have to be brief.. 
Just a quick masculine card post....
I was asked to make a DIY inspired card for a friend... when I saw this digi from Karen's Doodles , I knew that was the perfect image 

 He is called Grandpa Fix It.. I love those stripey dungarees! the papers are from Mel Stampz.. what an Aladdin's cave of freebies! and MME Miss Caroline -fiddlesticks. He is coloured with my Spectrums, I have used bits of corrugated card, and distressed them with ink and white acrylic paint.The hammer is a neat finish , doncha think?

So, just to add this to following challenges
1.Sweet N Sassy - Hip to be square
2.Charisma cardz- for the guys
3.Paper Shelter - anything goes
4.Whimsy inspiration - anything goes
5.Emerald Fairies- use a tag
6.Creative craft challenges - anything goes
thanks for popping by... I have lots more to share but I can't spill the beans right now... 
Real soon tho' ...
