Genuine Boy Card

The kids just finished their lunch break and I took the chance to get another card put on my blog while they were eating! I slowly worked on this card while they were doing school work and needed my help...I would cut a few pieces, color a bit, then go help one of them...come back and keep going hee way to get the cards done right?!?

This time I ventured over to Taylored Expressions to see what goodies were waiting there for me and lo and behold there was a cool sketch there. I saw "boy" when I saw the sketch and I remembered that over at ColorQ, Arielle had some "boy colors" happenin' :o) Yay!! My only hard part, was finding some boy stamps that SU! has...I don't know about all you out there, but I really struggle in that department when it comes to my opinion, they don't offer a lot of stamps for the male gender. Thank goodness I keep some oldies kickin around for times like these!!!

When I saw the colors from Arielle, I instantly thought of these papers I have had forevah and decided to get them out and use some of it up. It's from My Mind's Eye. I don't have a lot of Tempting Turquoise DP that is boyish, so this was what I had to work with!! Close enough in my books....:)

Stamps: Bronc Buster; Paper: Soft Suede, Night of Navy, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, My Mind's Eye DP; Ink: Versafine Black; Accessories: clear EP, markers, pewter brads, pewter pearls, dimensionals, paper piercer.
I also got some chocolate chip cookies made before lunch, so now I'm off to start the banana bread! I'm trying to get my snacks and breads caught up for the weekend so I can CRAFT the weekend away!!! :) TTYL....
