Hot Stuff!

Good morning!  We have a new challenge for you at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight Debbie has chosen our challenge..."It's a Male Thing".  That's right, we would like to see some "Man Cards"!

I went with Bugaboo's Gus...the guy makes me a good way, of course!  Gus is colored with pencils and I've even remembered the zinc oxide for his nose...he's ready to head to the beach!  Some banners and die cuts complete the card.  Sketch is from Fusion.

Image: Bugaboo Stamps
Sentiment: The Cat's Pajamas
Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and New Leaf, SU! Brilliant Blue and Poppy Parade, October Afternoon DP
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, MFT Die-namics (cloud and sun), The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's "Man Cards"...the line-up is looking good!  Why not take some time to play along?  Build your stash!

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

Card Crafters Circle: For the Boys
Creatalicious Challenges: For the Boys
DRS Designs: Mad About Plaid
Fusion: Sketch
Here Come the Boys: Lazy Summer Days
Kreativeinkauf: Summer, Sun, Beach
