Skating By: Mediterranean Trip Achievers Blog Hop


I love this month's theme for the Mediterranean Trip Achievers Blog Hop!!!
We are all focusing on BOYS! GUYS! MEN!
I don't make enough masculine cards and I need to make myself do it more often.

I had a really hard time picking which stamp to use for this card but couldn't be more thrilled with my choice.


Isn't this little dude just the cutest? And I really enjoyed coloring him and his guitar. Coloring images like this and really taking my time, really is very relaxing. I was sleepy when I was finished... LOL! I used my good old Aqua Painter and my Stampin' Up ink pads to color him. 

Here is a better look at his cute little face. I fussy cut both him and the guitar and  adhered them on to White cardstock with Dimensionals. I like the shadow this creates. I also added staples for that "manly" look as well as some texture using Timeless Textures onto the wood print DSP.



Make sure you hop over to the other ladies on this long list. This blog hop is so impressive each month. I love just stirring back and looking through all the gems they have created.
