Tammy's Scrappin Corner - Challenge #44

Happy Happy Monday sweet friends -  sure hope you had a wonderful weekend.  It was fairly quiet here which was a blessing.

This week's challenge with Tammy's Scrappin Corner is all about "Manly Cards".  I don't know about you but I don't seem to make as many manly cards as I do more girly cards.  Manly cards are easier in some way and a little more challenging in other ways.  Have you ever felt the same way??

Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede and I love their quirky and adorable images.  This week I chose to use this image called "Old Car".



I used cardstock from The Angel Company called "Hemingway" and paper pieced the car rather than using my copics.  I thought about adding buttons but decided against it.  I am going to send this one to a dear friend of mine in Seattle and I think he will really like it.  I also added some ink around the edges of the beige cardstock to give it a more vintage look as well.

We have a wonderful guest designer this week.  If you would like to be a Guest Designer put GDT after your name when you enter this weeks challenge at Tammy's Scrappin Corner.

Sure hope you will join in this weeks challenge with us.  The winner of this challenge will receive digital images from QKR.  Our design team has some great inspiration and you can find all their links on the right side of my blog.

Can't wait to see what you create and have a great week.

With hugs and smiles

Laine

  3. Hi Laine
    Gorgeous manly card! Love the backing paper you used, all the distressing and the image is brilliant too. I do not do many "manly grown up cards". Most of the time it is for my little nephews.

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
