House Mouse Challenge #28 - Masculine - Men

Happy House Mouse Monday.... Today's challenge over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog is to make a masculine card for an adult, not the young kind, because that would be easy. Most of us seem to struggle with making masculine cards for grown up men.

My House Mouse image is called "Sunny Side Up" #HMJR1033 (Thanks America for the image and sentiment). I water coloured the image with Stampin Up reinkers. Matted with More Mustard and Chocolate Chip, Added the yellow corduroy brad. Main card is 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" Chocolate Chip, next is more mustard than Memory Stor dp... I thought this dp was perfect for the image... look at all those suns. The four squares are 2"x2", chocolate chip, more mustard and Memory Stor dp (purchased at Costco). All edges were distressed and stitched. Added the sentiment and brads.

My DH (Rob) and I are heading for San Diego, California - we are hoping to kick back, relax and enjoy some warm, sunny weather, to do some sightseeing, mountain biking, visiting family and friends. Hopefully we'll be feeling as relaxed as Mudpie is. :)

Please head on over to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog and have a look at all the other wonderful cards the DT have made. If you can join us this week, please remember to upload your card or project to the HM blog.

Happy Stamping...
