For The Boys

Good morning everyone and Happy Wednesday! Today sees the start of a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter and the theme this week is "FOR THE BOYS" so we want to see your creations for the men/boys in your life.  I don't know about you but I can sometimes struggle with male cards as it means you have to hold off the embellishments really no flowers, glitter or bling - sigh! So I decided to go for a get well card and I must say I loved colouring up this cute little guy!

Items Used

Image:  Paper Shelter Dr. Pepe L'Souris available here
Markers: Copics
Papers: Bazzill Basics Red Devil
Dies: SB Squares and Scallop, SB Ribbon Banner, Cheery Lynn Expandable Tiny Borders, Dienamics Notebook Edge
Embellishments: Fired Brick DI, Glossy Accents

I'm sure he'd fix you up in no time at all lol! The sentiment is computer generated and I was so pleased that I actually managed to figure out how to curve writing so it would go in the banner die! I have written the instructions down so I don't forget next time! The prize for the lucky winner is:

You don't have to use a Paper Shelter image to enter but if you do then you would win a $30 voucher if you were the lucky winner, for other images the prize would be 3 Paper Shelter images of your choice.  Please go over to The Paper Shelter challenge and see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team have done!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Ladybug, Crafts Ink - Red and White
Cards for Men - Anything Goes
Paper Makeup Stamps - Animal Friends
Eureka Stamps - Animal Catwalk
Love to Scrap - Cut it Out (Die Cuts/Punches)
Aud Sentiments - For a Guy

Hi Susan, the card is brilliant, what a great image. I struggle with male cards too, often feel like I should make loads to get them into my system and then I might find them easier.

Sandy said...

Hey Sugar!! You always have the best papers and do dads to go with your designs. Love the two kinds of paper together with the loop-d-loops on the side. Your card should make anyone smile!

Carissa said...

This is adorable. A great little pick me up for someone who is feeling under the weather. Thanks for playing at Charisma this week.

Patricia said...

Good Morning Susan,
A far better buy than one of those "little" sewing machines would be to wait till Lidl or Aldi have their bargain "normal" sized machine in.
I have a very big Husgvarna machine which I love but it is very heavy.
My sister bought one from Lidl for £59.99 and it is great.
Happy Crafting
