A Hunter and a Llama

It's our team's week off at Squigglefly, but the challenge this week is one of my favorite type of challenges in the world - masculine cards - so I had to jump right in and play too. The challenge (SFC2013) is called Man Up!, and the goal is to make some Father's Day cards for your Dad, Grandad, Brother, Hubby, etc. We all need more masculine cards so I made two (hope I can find them on Father's Day - I lost the one I made my Mom and still haven't found it - opps).

I made one for my Pop who is a giant hunter. I have never tried to color something camo - I love how it came out. Isn't this image cute? It is from Diane Carubia and is called A Hunting We Will Go. I am also entering this in the Punch challenge at Card Making Mamas.



Then I made one for my Hubby using the new Lynne Stansbery image called Llama Mama. It comes with some great sentiments, but I just had to make up this one for Kenny! My Mom laughed for a long time after she saw this llama and it cracks me up everytime I see it!


I had so much fun with these images - you can get them at Squigglefly along with a zillion other fun images.

Hugz!

  5. Both of these cards are fantastic, maybe that's why you like masculine cards, because you do them so well. Both are wonderful images and colored to perfection.

  7. Did you come to my blog to try and get a peek at what I sent Crystal....lol Sure as shooting, I didn't post it as I wanted you all to enjoy it in real life before I put it up. I can be really really sneaky....lol Love these two masculine cards. I am not sure which one tickles me most. They sure are fun.

  8. Hi Nancy...Just wanted to say thanks for the kind words you left on my blog this morning! I know what you mean about life getting in the way of blogging. Love both of these cards. The image on the 1st is just way too cute and the sentiment on the 2nd is so funny!

  9. Wow, both those cards are just adorable. I am not sure which one I would give my dad, probably the 2nd one because it's too cute. He was a hunter though, so he might find the 1st one great for father's day. Thanks for playing in the Squigglefly Challenge this week. Great work!
