Hello Friends!

Boy, do I have a fun card for you today!  I designed this card for the November Twister Sister’s Team Swap.  Our challenge this month was to create anything masculine.   I chose to use the Senior Years stamp set to create my card.  I used the following Stampin’ Blends to color the image:  Petal Pink, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Pretty Peacock and Cajun Craze.

I’m always challenged when it comes to creating masculine cards.  My brain is wired for anything frilly and girly but this masculine card was a blast to make!   The Senior Years stamp set cracks me up!  I just love this guy’s pants!  Don’t you think the Plaid Tidings Designer Series paper was just the perfect addition to this card?  This ole’ guy really makes me chuckle!

Below, I have included all the details to re-create this card.  If you have any questions, I would love to help answer them!

Friends, I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!  I do hope you enjoyed my card and that I have inspired you to be a little crafty today!  I would encourage you to bring a bit of joy to someone’s day by sending them a special card!   Thanks for stopping by my blog!  I appreciate you taking the time to look!
