Sweet Stampin' - masculine

I'm back with my second post for today, for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin' which is a masculine theme.  Perfect timing for me, because I wanted to make a card to thank my mum's hubby Andrew for fixing my car.




I've used a stamp from Elzybells that I'd completely forgotten buying!  I'm glad I found it though, it's perfect for this card.  I've coloured the image with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are from a Papermania pad, cardstock from Papermill Direct.  The border was cut with the MS zig zag punch, star cut with a sizzix primitive star die.  The sentiment is Personal Impressions, button and twine from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

We've done our trip to Build a Bear, which really is a strange and very noisy place!  Dex ended up choosing a pink bear... he didn't like the bunny because it was mainly brown with not enough pink!  Hopefully we can avoid going there again for a while, although he did have his eye on the little Buzz Lightyear outfit so we might get him that for Christmas... I can just see his fluffy pink bear dressed up as Buzz Lightyear lol :o)

  17. What a gorgeous and perfect card Lisa! So wish Elzybells was still around!

    Lol, about Build a Bear - it's soooo expensive too! Molly has a dog that looks like a male but she insists it's a girl and dresses it in tutus and dresses. It cracks me up 'cos it looks like a drag queen!

  19. Hi Lisa, what a great masculine card. Love the image (it's such a shame Elzybells closed). Wonderful colouring as always, love the paper. I've only been to a Build a Bear place once, really creepy I thought all those bears being stuffed onto hoses! Urgh, not my thing at all - the things we do for those little people! Sarah

  20. Adorable card! And I have a cousin who lives in Sheffield - her area is called Dore. She is actually my mother's first cousin - my mother grew up in Leeds. I have only been to Sheffield once - a long time ago - but it's nice to connect with someone "across the pond"!

  27. What a gorgeous card, Lisa! I love the colours you used.
    Build-a-Bear workshop is a dangerous place to visit, LOL! So many cute bears and outfits to choose from. :-) Many years ago my brother bought my eldest daughter a Build-A-Bear, and recorded his voice for her. Only recently the voice disappeared after many, many listenings of her uncle's voice telling her he loved her. The bear is still beloved (and so soft and cute!).
