Growing up is optional. . . .

I've kinda taken a liking to "Gus" the character in Totally Stampalicous' stamps.  I'm featuring him again this week in a Masculine B-day Card 
The layout is from Splitcoast Sketches 

Here's the digs on supplies:

  • Basic Grey - Life of the Party 6x6 pad
  • Cardstock is CTMH: Pacific, Cranberry and Sunset.
  • Totally Stampalicious - Birthday Gus
  • CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge, 3D Dots, CTMH Crystal Gems, Copic Markers, MM Page Pebbles, Corner Punch
Thnxs for Lookin'!  Have a great Friday and even better Weekend!  I am headed out for some creative time with paper and friends for the day on Saturday.  Hopefully I'll be creative enough to get a few more projects done for Monday!   :)

Welcome 2012!

Happy New Year!  2012 is here and I'm excited to enter the new year with some  personal challenges and goals!  2011 ended in a blur and I have to appologize for my lack of new posts. . . however moving forward I'm excited to share some of my personal challenges for the beginning of 2012! 

Firstly, I'm going to continue my goal of attempting to complete the mojo challenge on a weekly basis much to my chagrin. . . the dinning room table is never going to get cleared off of it's paper supplies.  LOL!  Obvoiusly this will not be a resolution I can even consider at this point!   However, in attempt to reach outside of my comfort zone I am going to attempt meet one of my personal goals by doing cards with a masculine "theme", for birthdays, and significant other dates!  

To get into the groove of my first personal challenge, I am going to be using Mr. Fix it from Totally Stampalicious with this weeks  Mojo222  challenge.  

Why don't you play along and send me a photo of your own masculine card using the Mojo222 layout!
