Be Strong & Courageous


Hi, all!  Well, I survived my first week back as a full time student, this time with ALL NIGHT CLASSES, and so I decided today I'd do a bit of blogging and share a card made with a teenage boy in mind. :)  It uses some of the *NEWEST* products from The Stamps of Life!  Take a peek...


Isn't that fun?!  I used Powdered Sugar cardstock for the card base and Gingersnap cardstock for the rest of the plain colored paper.  The green patterned paper is from the Wishes Collection Patterned Paper Pad. The shirt outline and sentiment are from the *NEW* tshirt2stamp set and were stamped in Licorice ink.


Since boys don't usually go in for fuss or embellishment, all I decided to add were some black enamel shapes to this card.  I LOVE the way it turned out--and I hope you do, too!  I would love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment below! :)


I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~






Thank you so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you take some time to join in the fun with these fabulous challenges!  I'll be back soon with more crafty creations. :)  Until the, HUGS and happy stamping to you all!!!
