Blogger's Challenge #52

Holy Smokes I'm a big fat slacker! I go from Challenge #46 to #52! Wow! I don't know what I was thinking when I thought that we would slow down a bit after school got out for the summer! We have been running constantly to soccer camp, softball camp, VBS, Summer School, soccer games, etc. etc. etc. We also had pink eye and swimmer's ear mixed in there too! Needless to say, we haven't been bored! LOL!

Our challenge this week was to do a manly card. I'm posting the card that I made for Father's Day. I did the background with the little stamp from the Wanted set - it was time consuming, but I liked how it turned out. I got the layout idea from a card that I saw somewhere and saved it. There was no name on it, so I'm not sure who it was -- sorry! I did this card just a day or two before I found out the the Noble Deer set is retiring. I'm sad to see it go, but I'm sure that they have another fabulous set to take it's place. I have a few retired sets for sale so if anyone is interested, contact me and I will email the list to you.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Thanks for checking in!

Wow what a neat way to do your background. Again I love this deer stamp and am sad that it is retiring. You did a nice job with this card & it's good to have you back.

Shona, great come back! :-) This is just the epitome of a "manly" card. Terrific job with the challenge.

It's a wonderful masculine card Shona. This image is a classic one, and I'm sad to see it retire because it seems to be very popular. You did a fantastic job with it, and the challenge!

Oh, this is just super. I love the way you did your background - so detailed and textured looking. Fabulous. The deer is absolutely "manly" and it's a shame that it's retiring. Wonderfully done Shona!
