House Mouse Challenge #28: MEN

As usual...I enjoy all of the challenges...even the card for the men. I almost always make my husband a handmade card for Christmas, Valentine's Day, and His Birthday. He doesn't go nuts over it but I think he really likes them. The bigger challenge was making a masculine card but keep the holiday theme out. Father's day is easy......I chose a card to share with a Friend. The House Mouse Stamp is a new one for me "Autumn Sprinkles". I think anyone who struggles to "nicely" stamp the large stamp images like House Mouse or other's - getting in a weekly challenge definitely improves your skills and you get to read everybodies tips on inks and papers. I nailed this one in one try. I stamped the image on Neenah Cardstock and Memento Dew Drops in Rich Cocoa. I colored the image with Copics in a spring theme vs. fall theme. The cardstock is SU! Naturals White, Baja Breeze, and Basic Grey. The Designer Series paper is SU! but I can't seem to find it in the catalog - may have been in the winter mini. The brads and h/w are SU!. The ribbon is MJ Trimmings - one of my favorites....jeez I need another trip to the Ink Pad, MJ Trimmings, and Dick Blick Art in NYC. The sentiment is an SU! Hostess Set "A is for Adorable".
