Birthday Attack!


What boy doesn't like sharks?!  This is on one of my go-to images for boys, maybe because when my son was little he was infatuated with sharks.  He would spout off shark facts, shark names, and all things sharky.



This image is called Got Ya! from Digistamps4Joy.  I'm not overly happy with my copic coloring on this one, I think I overcolored ... note to self for next time.  The image is fastened to the card with an adhesive spring so it jiggles - it's pretty neat if I do say so myself!

Thanks for stopping by!

Challenges:
Cardz 4 Guyz - All at Sea

Cheesey Birthday


I made a promise to myself that I would go through all my stamps and start using the ones that I have forgotten about ... this image is one of those promises!



This stamp is part of a set named Giggle Greetings by StampinUp!  I have no idea how long I've had this set but it has never been used until today.  The images are fun and simple making it easy to create a card in a flash.  I colored the image up with my copic markers and used Spellbinders to frame the image, a touch of sequins and I'm done! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays - Use those Sequins 

You're the Man


I enjoy creating masculine cards so when I get a chance to build my stash of manly cards I get quite excited.    This digi is Gardening Gus by Dr. Digi's.  I own many manly digi stamps from Dr. Digi's, they have such a great selection to choose from!



I colored Gus with my copic markers then added some fun layers with brightly colored paper. I hope this will inspire some of you to start creating those manly cards. Thanks for stopping by!

Challenges:
Crafting by Designs - You're the Man
Watercooler Wednesday - Masculine anything goes
Crafty Gals Corner - 3 or more layers

Summertime Hammock: Creatalicious Challenge #145

It's time for Challenge #145 at Creatalicious Challenges - ANYTHING GOES with optional no square or rectangle card.

I struggled with this one at first, most of the cards I create are square or rectangle!  I did some searching and found this star fold card.  Surprisingly it was pretty easy to put together.  I followed instructions from Crafting with Joanie, click here for her tutorial.



Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter and I chose to work with Hammock Days. Our summer has been so hot and sunny that a drink in a hammock looked pretty enticing!

Due to the size of the image, I printed off the pre-colored image because I knew I wouldn't be able to see well enough to color such a tiny size!

Now it's your turn to create!  Hop on over to Creatalicous and link up your creation, I look forward to seeing your designs!  Thanks for stopping by.
