Anyway its another challenge date for Cards for Men and I carnt believe that its 10 months since Donna started these challenges and weve been so lucky to have at least over 30 entrants each time, but here we are at Number 18 and the theme is "Long Summer Days" and this fortnight we are being sponsered by Phindys of http://www.phindysplace.com/
Phindy has generously offered us a prize of $10, and this is what she says about herself :-
Phindy's Place Digi Stamps is where you can find hundreds of beautifully drawn and detailed images for all your handmade card, scrapbook and paper crafting projects. Digi stamping is a new endeavor for children's book illustrator Philomena O'Neill and she enjoys drawing charming line images for crafters to color and embellish for their own creative efforts. Philomena likes to think of this as a collaboration between two artists. Please stop by at Phindy's Place, you are going to find images you love!
Heres my DT card created for this challenge, its one of Phindys own fabulous digi stamps, I do so hope that you will like it.
I love this little lad fishing with his dad, he looks so sweet and so happy, Ive printed him out onto coated white card and coloured his with my copic pens, after which Ive cut him out with my Nestabilitie die Label No.8 then drawn around the edge of the die to create the mount for it.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card, and one of three papers from the DCWV card stack "All about Boys", the first one is a striped pattern of several colours, the second is a red base with spots on, this was mounted square on red card but the corners have been punched with the Martha Steward family punch, the third mount is yet another red piece of card but this paper pattern is a check one, this was laid in a diamond shape and my mounted image was then stuck on top in the centre.
To finish of Ive stuck several fishing buttons around the corners, and the sentiment is one that I had in my stash which has been mounted onto a piece of blue card, but around the edge of the sentiment Ive used a red pen.
I do so hope that you will pop over to Cards for Men and see the fabulous and stunning creations that my fellow Design Team members have created for this challenge, and hopefully it will also encourage you to take part as well, with the chance to win this fabulous prize from Phindy.
