Just Relax

Since it's the first Wednesday of the month, it's time for the Sketch Challenge over at Dude Time Doodles!  You have one week to work the sketch and submit your creation .  It MUST be a masculine themed card as that's what the Dudes are all about.  The winner will be announced next week and you could be selected as the Top Blog or one of the Top Three - plus there will be a generous prize for the winner.  So be sure and head on over to Dude Time Doodles and submit your entry.




This is Hammock Harold and he can be found in Boni's STORE.  How about this cute image for a Father's Day card!  He's relaxing and chillin' which is what all dads need to do on "their day".  I used a Texturz plate from SU on the yellow and the patterned paper is from Paper Studio.  The "Relax" letters were actually pink (yes, I said PINK) puffy stickers!  I colored over the pink with a blue SU marker and it worked perfect!  It's amazing sometimes what you can do with limited supplies!

I'll be entering this in the challenge over at Stamping Scrapping Challenges Central ( masculine) and also at Karen's Doodles Challenge (Father's Day).

Oh, and before I forget.......Dude Time Doodles is having a Design Team call!  Get all the details on the blog1

Thanks for stopping by................and be sure and check out Dude Time Doodles to submit your entry.

Love the wild plaid dp you put behind this totally relaxing image! Perfect contrast. This is what all the dad's in my family will be doing on their special day! Great coloring, too!

Great job with Harold. That plaid background paper is fantastic for it! I'll have to remember that I can color stuff if it's not the color I want. :)

What a cute dude Lynn. You are very creative making up your own colour for your puffy stickers. Somehow, the plaid paper really fits Hammock Harold. Hopefully you have had some rain, ours has stopped for a whole day...yahooo
