Sassy Cheryl Latest Challenge "For a Guy/Boy" and DT Call!

How  Frustrating to be all ready to compose the final elements of your card....and then, You Run Out of ALLLL your adhesive!!  YIKES!  I don't think that's ever happened to me before.  I mean I was digging everywhere to even find a partial roll--my big adhesive gun was even giving me fits.  The cartridges were not wanting to work properly.  Today I got armed to the hilt with my stash and am ready to rock and roll with my card for the Challenge #170 on Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog and DT team entry.
I've been wanting to use this digital image of Cheryl Algers' for a long time-It's called "Be Prepared" and I got it from Squiggle Fly because Sassy Cheryl is a featured Artist on their blogsite.  I fancy cut him because I wanted to see the neat embossed tree dp through his body.  The tree to his left is from a textured woodgrain paper that I added some green Flower Soft to create some leafy branches.  The river rock he's standing on is again some theme paper from my stash.  I flat mounted his feet to the rock paper but I used foam dots on the upper part to give him a little dimension.  I think I had the Most fun on this card with the little pup tent that I created out of 2 corners on some speckled brown paper.  Think I'd originally bought it to use for "pigskin" around football season but thought it's perfect for this!! Made a pole out of kraft paper, slit the front triangle and then curled back the front flaps.  It looks just like the tent we used to put up in the summer in our back yard when we were growing up~brings back fond memories!  The inside of the Birthday card has Camping theme paper background and a kraft top note die cut for personalizing it.

I hope I was able to give others some neat ideas and pass on some tips.  Wish me luck with the DT call and cross everything that you can!
Thanks for looking, Carolyn
