WIPEOUT!! This is actually my son's favorite TV Game show. And how appropriate since this is all about him. Unfortunately his summer didn't end real well when he broke his wrist after falling while riding his Ripstick in July. It was his favorite birthday present and well it proved to not be his friend. He hasn't ridden it since. He plays other sports, so being cautious. Will be getting him all kinds of protective gear soon!
I was also inspired by the November challenge over at 123 Get Scrappy!!
Use 3 things from this board in a row!
I used... ONE WORD TITLE, MORE THAN 2 RIBBONS (3rd is tied around one wrapped on paper on left) & MASCULINE
My first time entering this challenge. Not the last. You have until December 1st to play!!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back again sooner rather than later. Catching up on ME and some DT assignments. :)

I dug into some older photos for this one. Our kiddos are not that super excited to do the pumpkin patch thing anymore. Sad really. We will still possibly go... but until then I need to relive these moments. This was our son's first field trip with his pre-school. Oh how time flies.
I'm also entering this into the latest Frosted Designs Friday Challenge...
The Fall colors are obvious. Besides my journaling, I inked the edges of the punched out pumpkins in the bottom right corner to emphasize that they are indeed pumpkins. The tractor is also stamped and colored. My bling is my sparkling lonely GREEN brad holding the corner edge folded up. :)
Happy Fall Y'all!!
Hope you have time to create!!

At first I was going to make this a Trick or Treat / Halloween card... but them remembered that it is "Fire Prevention week" at our son's school. Might be the perfect opportunity to say "Thank You" to those that watch out for us at all hours of the day/night.
This is just one of a handful of new releases... so got check out Heather's fabulous digi images all releasing today!
(You can purchase the images at this link)
I also want to mention that I was inspired by the sketch from the Mojo Monday blog.
My card measures 3.5 x 6". Tall and skinny is the theme.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have fun scouting out the other creations. :)

I had fun with this!! Our daughter's 2nd ever Hip Hop dance recital this past summer. She was super sick for 2 weeks prior. We weren't sure if she could pull this off. And she did! She quite amazed us with her talents since her Mother and Father clearly do not have these skills. LOL! (Well maybe I do behind closed doors when no one is looking and the stereo is blasting. :) )

I kept this super simple for I wanted the various circles to represent the feel of a pool, bubbles, water etc. Added my buttons around the title so it would stand out a bit. :)

With the exception of the image, all the other products are from Stampin' Up. In fact the patteren paper is a REALLY OLD retired set called "Tree House." It's perfect for the masculine colors I needed. Then some candy enamel dots, twine, colored with SU pencils and Prisma Pencils and voila. Not a lot of fluff to add.
I also used the sketch from SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY 2 #19 for my starting point.
I printed my image a tad bigger than I intended... so didn't include the circle part of the sketch, but the rest is all there.

So... most of the products used here are from Stampin' Up. Cardstock, border punch, circle punch, "rectangle" hand held punch, white gel pen, real red marker and the Birthday sentiment.
The "50" are stickers from my stash and the card image is from google images. :) Gotta love the internet and a printer. I did make that Poker Chip with my own 2 hands. White and Red circle punch overlapped on each other with thin white gel pen lines in the center and the thicker white dashes are and OLD retired hand held punch from SU.
I used the MOJO Monday 348 sketch for my inspiration.
It's a contest this week as well. :)
And I would also like to enter my card into "Splendiferous Creations" Blogger challenge.
The challenge is to make a "MASCULINE" card.
Yep... my challenge alright.
