Talkin' bout my guy...

Olo!

Hope you are all well on this fine Wednesday morning. I've got the day off and depending on the weather I'll either be out and about or if it is rainy like yesterday, I just may have to stay home and get my craft on a bit. ;)

So I've got a just for fun card to share with ya today. I had some My Guy Ians that were stamped up and partially colored for one of my videos a while back and I wanted to start getting them onto cards. So I grabbed some very guy colored papers and whipped out a quickie card, then I finished coloring up Ian to match the greens, blues and oranges. Because I wanted him to have his eyes open I did a quick head swap with Special Autumn Ian. Such an easy alteration but oh-so effective!

I kept the embellishing to a minimum but I thought it would be fun to use a wood popsicle stick that fell out of a pack of rub-ons rather than throw it away. When I snapped the ends off I thought it kinda had a nature type vibe that worked. And don't ask me why I added the moose... I saw him on a sheet of paper, thought he was cute and just had to add him to the card. ;)

Well, thanks for stopping by... chat at'cha later!

Hi Amy. I love this card. I also think the moose is just awesome. He looks so cute there. He reminds me of Northern Exposure. lol.. Jerry loves that show and watches it when he can. Anyway, awesome guy card. Hope you had a great day. Mine started out bad yesterday and it is getting better, but had to spend my crafting and food money on 3 new tires yesterday, so I am really worn out. lol... Oh well. I am sure that the stamps arn't going anywhere. Have a wonderful evening. Hugs, Lisa
