Stamps R Us Challenge – Men In Our Lives!

May 2nd today, can you believe it?  It won’t be long until kids are out of school, and the weather will be gorgeous.  Where has the time gone!

It’s also time for another challenge at the Stamps R US blog.  This fortnight we are being sponsored by Dude Time Doodles, and they are offering a very generous prize package to one lucky winner!  If you are looking for any type of image for a man, you will definitely find it at their store.  I got to use one of the images from Dude Time Doodles, and it’s called “Pete The Plumber”.

                      Pete The Plumber

I colored the image with copics, and then layered it on card stock.  I used the Spellbinders oval and scalloped die to cut the card stock.  The designer paper is from the Oliver Paper Pad by Basic Grey.  I just got the new embossing folder by Couture Creations, and it’s the Diamond Trellis folder.  The brads are by Doodlebug.  I got the sentiment from Create With TLC, and I thought it was perfect for this image!  I found the layout (sketch) for the card in the magazine Card Making and Paper Craft.
