For the Boys

Let's hear it for the boys and men in our lives! It's almost Father's Day and I know that many of you (myself included) are busy cranking out cards for all those wonderful men in our lives. Cupcake Craft Challenge Blog makes it easy to participate in their challenge theme this week of "One for the Boys".

My card features one of the new Monsters from Paper Makeup Stamps called Me and Pops. I went with a very different color theme based on that paper which is from the Stampin' Up Designer Series "Autumn Blossoms". It is unusual, yet it it is very *monster-y*. Is that a word? LOL! I paper pieced Daddy monster's shirt and tie and then colored him and his little fella to coordinate using my Copics and my BIC markers. I opted to distress the edges of all my paper because it looked better than crisp edges. I didn't have a good Father's Day stamp for this, so I typed it out myself using the Kristen ITC font on Microsoft Word.

Thought for the Day:

My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass." "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys."
