hey buddy

** 11/24/13 DT Favorite at Make It Monday - Featured on Sandy's Blog! **

OMG - what fun I had creating this boy card, my DT inspiration project for the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog LTSCB #18 - Boyz Rule! Come play with us! We're being sponsored by the awesome QKR Stampede!

I used a navy blue and neutrals color scheme, along with several die cuts and some adorable ruler washi tape! I even dug into the buttons!

What a fun, fun image this was to work with! Love the plumber's crack on this little carpenter! ;)

I found some tool die cuts in my stash that I've had forever... so long, in fact, that I don't have any earthly idea where I got them! But the hammer was perfect for the inside of this card!

I'm proud to enter my buddy card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury white cardstock (card base); Hammermill cardstock (image); GKD navy blue and kraft cardstock
