I've been on a stamping shopping spree lately!! I just LOVE this set from My Favorite Things - it came in the mail a few days ago and convinced me to give up on the masculine challenge - not that it was a tough decision!! I have actually come to the realization that men don't need cards!!! I have never been more UNinspired to create than when I was trying to make guy cards. I have a list of ideas that I was going to use, but found I just didn't want to do it. So the Manly Challenge is officially OVER! Sorry!!
I will stick to NO FLOWERS for the rest of the week though in punishment for quitting my challenge early!
CARD DETAILS ---- This is a one layer card with Ruby Red as the base. I stamped the shopping girl image and waterolored it with ink pads and a blender pen. It's mounted on Summer Sun and secured to the basic grey layer with eyelets. It is the perfect size to fit a gift card. The little flap that says "time to shop" will open up when the photo anchor is slid aside reavealing an area to write a sentiment. I added little silver dots with a metallic pen all along the card edge. I really wanted to add some ribbon but couldn't find a good spot to put it?! So this one will just have to be ribbonless.
BLOG CANDY ALERT----- Today's giveaway is this card AND something from the shipment of BASIC GREY that is arriving today!!! I can't tell you what the something is yet, but I'm sure you'll love it!! All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on today's card!
