Street Wise

Hi Crafters,

I've been looking through my stamp collection and coming across lots of stamps that haven't been inked up before - you know the ones - those fabulous stamps that we just NEEDED at the time but then never got around to using when we got them home, so this is one of those.

The skate-border and sentiment come from two of the 'Just For Men' stamp sets by Crafters Companion called 'Rock Star' & 'Street Wise', hence the title of my blog today and I teamed them with digital papers from Michele R Designs called 'Kool Dude'. 

Challenges I'd like to enter:
The Ribbon Girl - June Card Challenge
Crafty Cardmakers - #190 For a Special Man/Boy/ Father's Day
Fab n Funky - #354 Marvelous Men
Creative Moments - #119 ATG/Birthday
Cute Card Thursday - #481 Boys/Men
Unicorn Challenge - #22 For The Guys
Crafty Calendar Challenge - Boys will be Boys
Not Just cards - #44 One for the Boys

There are lots of male themed challenges out there at the moment with Father's Day on the horizon.
I have a few orders for those too that I need to crack on with so maybe I will be able to share them once the orders have gone out.

It's turning in to a brighter day here today since I came back from my walk, now to get stuck in to some serious crafting!

Oh yes 'one of those most needed stamps' I have just been converting all of my block stamps into useable ones for the Misti, and although it's a lot of work, I will now use them
Love this card though it's great for a guy,xx [aNNie]

Yes Lorraine, I know exactly the ones you mean, I think we all suffer from that addiction - or is that affliction ?

It is a super masculine creation and such an eye catching design, many thanks for joining in with our June theme at Penny Black and More challenge.

This is very cool, great inspiration for a boys card.
