TSG42: He/She Card

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Good Morning!

I hope you all had a really wonderful Valentines Day. Most of my day was filled with chores and baking cookies for Syd's daycare class, but the evening was perfect! The Man and I had dinner at a very swanky restaurant here in town and he spoiled me rotten with a box of chocolates and a VERY pretty diamond bracelet! Don't worry, he got spoiled too. ;)

This week's There She Goes challenge is a great one! You know how all the stamps we own are so feminine and we can never seem to make cards for the men in our lives? Well, this challenge will get your creative juices flowing and make you see your stamps in a whole new light! Your challenge is to create two identical cards using the same images but change the colors (this can include different DP) and embellishments so that one is a feminine card and the other more masculine!

Awesome challenge right?? I never seem to make any cards that are really masculine, so this challenge was great for me. I decided to use the Loads of Fun set for my two cards and as you can see, just a change of paper and colors, and you've got yourself a card fit for anyone! :) I used Taylor's 100th sketch for the layouts and just rotated the feminine one. Still the identical layout, just rotated.

Now it's your turn! Create your two cards, then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of the challenge post. The challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Feb. 22nd) and the winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

I want to apologise to all my friends who's blogs I often leave comments on, but haven't lately. Blogger and Typepad are blocked at my new work so I can't view anyone's blogs to leave some love like I usually do! I feel soooo bad and miss you all! My evenings are tied up (until well after midnight lately!) with card making so I have had almost zero time to visit you all! Please forgive me for this and know that I am trying to find a happy medium between work, home life, my online friends and this hobby we all love. ((hugs))
