Step Up and do "Manly"

Today's challenge at Sharon Johnson's site is to make a manly card...and be kind to that man and don't give him tons of blingers and ribbons. The challenge is "manly" not wimpy or fancy! I used some wonderful BG I just whipped up with my every so wonderful Scor-Buddy or something like that and WOW...didn't it come out just perfect?? Liar, liar, pants on fire because I stole it from DD's tut which you can find here. Did I fool you even just a little when I said I did it? Anyway, it was so perfect for a "manly" type card I just borrowed it for the time being and created a card with it. I also snagged her stamp set and used the wonderful sailing ship from Flourishes. Just stamped and beat up the edges with my cute little SU
rougher upper thingy and then put some copper rub a buff along the rough edges. I decided since this card was "manly" not to fancy it up much so I just put the rusty ribbon and then added the black jute which I did a number on and unravelled it making it look rough and tough. Does it look like a spider to you ???

Well spiders are for the tough men in your life .When you see one don't you scream and go crazy yelling...kill it I think it's a terantula? I personally don't do that because I'm a gutsy gal and even though I don't like committing murder I do crush the little buggers and they are goners.

Well fellow bloggers ,I hope you have a great weekend . It's chilly here in the state of Montana but hey fall is due soon so just live with it is my motto. See you soon.



Loving your manly card! I need to do one for hubby, and you have given me some wonderful ideas! Great job!

Love the way you did the background. Looks like you and DD were working together as she had a wonderful tutorial on her blog. Like the way you incorporated the solid lines with the dots

I have not looked at the tutorial as yet but I will. I just wanted to tell you how much I love this card and that background paper gives it just the look it needs. Of course I am partal to the stamp too... I was sorry I missed the change to get the one SU use to have. Now I have this beauty from Flourishes.
