It's A Mans World-Catch The Bug

Good morning my blogging, crafty friends!  It's time for this weeks challenge at Catch The Bug!  Are you ready to get in touch with your masculine side?!  I mean your masculine side when it comes to making cards, that is!  We have the perfect challeng for you and just in time for Father's Day.

As you can see from the title of this post, "It's A Mans World", that's exactly what we're doing today.  Getting in touch with our masculine craftyness!  So break out those manly images and scale back on the ribbon and let's see what you come up with.  Here's what I did with the challenge:

Isn't he just the cutest cowboy you ever did see?!!  I colored him using copic markers.  The background was created using the faux wood technique found on Gina K's web tv.  I started with a pumpkin card stock and dragged it with a combination of white pigment, then brown and black dye ink.  Pretty cool looking if you ask me?!!  For the lariats, I braided some strands of raffia and then sewed them to the card.  The finishing touches were bandana designer paper I had in my stash, a blanket stitched oval and the sentiment I created using Print Shop.

Be sure to join us in this weeks challenge for your chance to win some free Bugaboo Stamps. Two images for third, four images for second and seven images for first but you must use a Bugaboo image to be eligible for first.

To get your creative juices flowing, check out the fabulous card designs that the team made for this challenge! 

Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN

Hugs, Becky
