This week's challenge is brought to us by the ever so sweet and talented Beate!! She's asked us to use Manly Colours on our projects!! This works out well, since some of the new Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps that are being released tomorrow, are DUDES!!!! Heehee!
I don't know about you but I'm ALWAYS in need of more manly stamps and cards in my stash! So this challenge was right up my alley! And I used my FAVOURITE of the new Steven Leary stamps....this one is called Shovelling Miles!! Doesn't he just make ya giggle???
To tell you the honest truth, he makes me laugh so hard because this is EXACTLY what my Dad looks like after he's shovelled the entire driveway and then the snowplow goes by and fills in the end of the driveway again! NOT a happy camper! Haha!
So I pulled out some retired Stampin Up winter papers that I got last year, I think. I can't remember what they are called but I just loved that they were non-traditional winter colours and I thought they were perfect for this card....orange, blue, green, brown. So I stamped Shovelling Miles on Neenah white cardstock with Memento ink and coloured him up with my Copic markers.
I added some yummy green striped ribbon along with a big ol' bow and hung a snowflake charm from it. Then I stamped a rather sarcastic sentiment, Happy Winter, from the Holiday Sentiments set and pop dotted everything. I finished it off by adding some Stardust Stickles to the snow!
And I TOTALLY plan on mailing this little dude to my Dad!! Lucky he doesn't check out my blog much so he won't see this. I hope it arrives in his mailbox on a rather snowy day! Teehee!
