It's A Man's World....

Not really, but I let The Man have his dream once in a while! *grin*

Check out these fun 'man' cards! I was totally cracking up while coloring them in this past weekend.

Meet Caveman Gorf. He's very hairy; check out that uni brow! LOL! I used this week's TESC82 for this card. Tweaked it a little bit by straightening the angular background paper, but kept everything else the same. The sentiment is also from Starving Artistamps/DoodleFactory. Those sentiments really have me cracking up laughing; love the sarcasm!

It's an age-old question; why DO kids draw on walls?! There's perfectly good paper next to them, and yet the temptation to scribble on the walls is too great. My Syd have been even more creative than this of late. I've been told by her preschool teacher that she'll sometimes draw with her saliva on the tables! I just about died when she told me. *roll eyes* This is definitely not something she has learnt in our home! Lord give me the strength. :)

The smaller stick figure stamps in the background are also included in the Prehistoric set, so you can create your own 'wall art'. :) I used this week's Weekend Sketch Challenge (WSC97) for the layout of this card. I think it worked out great! The images from both cards were colored with reinkers on Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper. It's not as forgiving as watercolor paper, but it's smooth and I like the finish it gives the images. It is a little time consuming to cut the images out, but it gives me something to occupy my hands while I watch a movie or tv. :) The paper used is from Basic Grey's Archaic Collection and some from We R Memory Keepers.

Thank you for the well wishes for Syd. She had a much better night's sleep last night, so hopefully she's back to her old self today. See you all tomorrow. :)
