Beetween The Bars


Hello all again,  It's Challenge time at Stamping with the Dragon!  All the great details just below.

We had a really HOT day in Michigan this week, well OK . . . it was hot for US at least, 78 degrees!  All I could think was . . . where's the grill?  As it turns out, it's way behind the shed, under the tarp and the garden lounge cushions with no chance of rescue until the 3rd day in a row above 68 degrees, per hubby! At least the Vitamin D is soaking in and the trips to the park are increasing! 

Onto this great card image. . . I say GREAT because I was really excited to color a Kenny K image finally, I can't spice it up any more than this . . .  I have seen him everywhere in blog land and really thought the images are "Fresh and Young".  A little about it:
THEME: SPORTS/CREATE A CREATION WITH A SPORTS THEME
PRIZE: 3 digis for 1st, 2 digis for 2nd and 1 digi for 3rd. and dont forget a prize to be the guest design Team member. So, this challenge will have 4 winners!!!

My inventory of images aren't like this . . . so I loved adding it to keep up with and be able to offer a large variety for my craft sale patrons.  :D)  My next sale is in Depot town, Ypsilanti, by the way, on May 17th.  I would love to see you there and I'd be happy to give you a special treat if you can make it.


          This image is card in half
There is a lot going on here so . . . extra pics.  The card is for that really special guy that loves the game but thinks cards are "just for the girls".  The card style was an adaptation of a great design I learned from my monthly card class by ScrapGirl ~ Angela Hunt.  Size is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored in center and DP x 4 all the same size to cover the Bazil stock.  However, I added an element that any guy could take from the card and appreciate all year around . . . the hockey puck in the center is a paper mache' ornament covered  360 degrees with card stock and the hockey image.

DP is Me & My Big Idea "Champs" speciality collection
Spellbinders "Nestabilities" 4 sized, Standard size circles & Labels 7
