Alota Guy Card Challenge -

HI... sorry this is a late morning post today - went to breakfast, then I was messing with the settings on my camera and pulled out an old lens to see if it was better than I was using - uh no.. and now all my settings are messed up! So once done here I will have to keep working with that - I have all these lenses, filters and camera equipment that was my fathers - we was a very talented artist and a great photographer - I know all this stuff I have could do some really cool things and I could really take much better photos than I do if I could learn how to use it all - I think I need to take a class somewhere - do you think they teach between 2-3am? I think I could fit it in there! LOL




Now a card today - and it is for the New challenge on the PCP Alota Rubber Stamps group. This time Cheryl has the challenge - and she called for Cards for Men - which is great for Father's Day as well - Me.. I just was having fun with a brand new Alota image and then pulled out one I have had forever and put them together! First I colored up the beach house or is that a shack? From the Surf's Up collection. Anyway I colored up the little beach house with my Copics - it really was all I had planned for the card - then I remembered this perfect little sleeping man in the boat.. now it also had a fishing pole coming out of the boat.. oops.. as I was trying to stick it down to the card... it came off - and you know fishing is too much work anyway so this dude is just chillin' -



The card stock is Core-dinations that I sanded the edges, the pattern papers are My Minds Eye.. they sand well too - I used an EK Success border punch for the zig zag border - love that it embosses a stitch on there too. I added 6 dew drops, and then some Cloud 9 sticker stitches. Doodled the edges and my sentiment is a Cloud 9 epoxy sticker. Love the sentiment!



I hope you will join in this challenge - really any Alota image and if it is for a guy and it qualifies and the prize? Well the entire Surf's Up collection!!! That light house in the set is fabulous! well heck they are all fun - Please join in!


Well hope you have a great Sunday- me.. working on my camera :0) And watching the Yankee game!

HUGS and-
