Hey Dude!

Wow this weekend went by fast! I can't believe it is Monday already. I managed to get 2 cards done this weekend. My sister, Mary, told me about a great website for some free digi's. It's called SJ's - Little Musings. This woman has some really adorable images and she gives them for free. I really appreciate talented people who are willing to share with others. When I saw this little guy I just knew I had to color him.

I thought this would make a great boy's birthday card. I am always looking for birthday cards for males. I tend to make cards with their sports interest but I'm sure they are sick of getting them by now. This will be a nice change.

The challenges I found for this card are:

Paper Sundays - Distressing. I find myself doing more distressing lately and I thought it fit well on this card.

Polka Doodles - Sketch. I loved this sketch and thought it would work well with this image.

My Time to Craft - Green + one - I liked this theme. One mandatory color and one of my choice. Great idea! I choose yellow.

ABC Challenge - One Paper - I wasn't sure I would do this challenge when I saw it because I am not good about using just one piece of DP but when I layed this out I realized I did only use one piece. I guess you just never know.

Your Next Stamp Challenge - Spring colors - When I saw this theme I immediatly thought Pink, Blue, Lavender but when I put this card together I thought how bright and springy it was and Yellow / Green are spring colors. I like when I can fit a challenge without going to the obvious.

Lots to do - Use a machine - I used my Cuttlebug and spellbinders to cut all 12 circles on this card.

Thanks for stopping by. Do you like my little dude? Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment. I love reading them all.

CS: SU Always Artichoke, YoYo Yellow
DP: Basic Grey
STAMP: Scrappy Lady
MISC: Star brads (don't know who makes them), Misc brads & Ribbon, Cuttlebug corner die

Great job, Peggy! I love the combo you picked and all your distressing on the circles.

I've had him printed for a while but haven't sat down and colored him yet.
