Happy Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Everyone! I hope you all enjoyed a great weekend. I am so happy to have a new laptop. My old one stopped working after only four years. I guess nothing is made to last forever. Now that I have my new computer, I can finally post again. Can you imagine being without a computer for nearly a month?

The card I am posting is another image by Dreamerland crafts sold exclusively at http://www.pointerscrapbooking.com/, and it is called Guitar Boy #1109014. I love this image. It is so difficult to find stamps that are geared for boys or men, and this one is so cute and is so quick and easy to colour. I used Prismacolour pencils and odourless mineral spirits to colour, and an embossing folder for the background. I love combining Kraft, baby blue and brown together and I use this combination very often. I put the buttons (die from Papertrey Ink) on at the last minute, but I'm not sure that I'm happy with the way it looks. I didn't really have another embellishment, and since I love the button die, I decided to use it. Even though it is a masculine card, I added a bit of glitter to make it "pop" and I am very happy with how it turned out.

I hope you like the card and thanks so much for stopping by. I would love to hear from you.

This is lovely, Nicky, and such a great colour combo for a masculine card. I love the embossing folder in the background, too. Your colouring on this cute image is awesome!

I love this card, Nicky - especially since I'm in "little boy mode" right now! The colour combination is great and the embossing folder in the background adds the perfect touch. Congratulations on another wonderful card!

Hi Nicky.....I'm a little behind but, anyway, this is a very cute card - the colour combo you used is so nice. Love this stamp...now I'll have to buy it! Actually, I love all the stamps in this new line. It was great seeing you this past Friday. We all enjoyed catching up. Thanks!!!
