Catch of the Day

Hi all!  Boo- I'm back from vacation...but Yay cause I'm back in my craft room :)  Vacations are great but it's always nice to come back home.  To help kick things off I'm back with the new challenge over at Tiddly Inks- Masculine projects.  Now, for those of you who've known me for a while, you know I don't really do the whole masculine thing (my family is much more on the girlie side of the spectrum, lol) so this is always a tough one for me.  But I had a ton of cute images to choose from over in the Tiddly Inks shop and I couldn't resist coloring up the image called Ricky- is he not just the cutest?  I kept things pretty simple since I can't use my fall back, go to embellie's like bling and flowers on a masculine card, lmbo :)  I hope that you like the finished project- be sure to check out the challenge blog for more awesome inspiration from the DT.  And hopefully you'll be so inspired you'll want to join in with us- you have two full weeks to play, just make sure you use a Tiddly Inks image- see, easy peasy!  Hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far!

I love that moment of familiarity you get when you come back home - before you think about the unpacking, heh. Glad to have you back! I don't know what I like more about the card, the plaid or his RED hair. ;D
