Crafty Gals Challenge: Let's Hear it for the Boys Challenge!

Welcome to Crafty Gals Corner second challenge with the theme of Lets Hear it For the Boys. We have two (2) fabulous sponsors for our challenge: Lacy Sunshine (3 digital images) and QKR Stampede (3 digital images)!!!!

I was fortunate to work with both Lacy Sunshine and QKR Stampede thus I have two (2) projects to share with you today as inspiration:

For my first project, I chose to used Lacy Sunshine Jamie Golfing. My friend, Rosie's, husband golfs and she likes to have golfing style cards to send to his friends for their birthday's. I thought this image was just "Fore" the occasion!!!

  • green Recollection card stock cut for a size A2 card
  • DCWV Nana's Nursery background with scrap for banner
  • Jamie Golfing was colored using Whisper Strokes and Spectrum Noir Markers with gel pen accents
  • Darice Glossy Accents on hat
  • buttons tied with jute glued on banner which as you know is my very most favorite embellishment with my wonderful stash of tins of buttons!!!!
  • sentiment, "Fore" your birthday previous freebie from Create with TLC has rounded corners and chalked around the edges
  • inside sentiment, "May they ball lie in green pastures, and not still waters." from Create with TLC Golfers Diet Word Art and Digi Set which has some wonderful sentiments just for golfing in this set - sentiment is chalked around the edges and mounted on scraps

For my second image, I chose to do a layout with QKR Stampede Going Fishing for my boyfriend as one of his very most favorite things to do is "going fishing"

  • background paper is Karen Foster Designs Lure 'em in
  • Going Fishing was colored using Prisma Colored Pencils, Whisper Strokes and Spectrum Noir Markers with gel pen accents and chalked around the edges
  • fishing reel was cut using Cricut Celebrate with Flourish at 6.75 inches
  • sentiment, "Fish tremble at the sound of your name"  had been a freebie from Create with TLC  
  • and of course the gentleman holding the fish is Bob!!
