And we shall call him


After the sympathy cards, I really needed a fun card, so what’s more fun than those adorable Golden Oldies?

I only managed to get 2 challenges done on this card, but it sure has a lot going on.

365 cards challenge 110 – masculine card with argyle
365 card challenge 64 – sketch

I used all new SU In Colors card stock – Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede.

My argyle background on the Bermuda Bay is from Unity stamps, my speckled background on the Soft Suede is SU’s Itty Bitty Backgrounds. I paper pieced his shorts with Bermuda Bay and colored his shirt with crushed curry, I colored the belt and sandles with SU choc. Chip and used my copics for his flesh, hair and outline.

My tag is from my CB, my ribbon is SU’s Soft Suede polka dot, brads/snaps are from We R Memory keepers square snaps subtle set, and my stitching is one of those rub-ons I got at Big Lots.

I really need a name for this old guy – he so reminds me of my dad. So, what do you think we should name this guy?

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

These three new colors look good together. Especially on a masculine card.

How cute is he??!! Do they have one where we can color black socks on him with his shorts? lol - my poor 71 year old father dresses that way and I have to smother a grin whenever I see him like that.

Really happy to be in the group with you!
