For the Gents

It looks like the shadow on the card was created from the flash on the camera , not so, I actually took a dark blue marker and added it to just the left side of the die cut to try and give it depth and the boy stamp I stamped twice and on the second one I colored dark brown and then offset it and glued it to the front one so it would appear to be a shadow.

I really like the stamps at Rogue Redhead Designs just the company name alone is cool and it's really cool how you can use any stamps to enter their challenges, of course we all love to see RRD stamps.  I love to enter challenges and sometimes the rules are confusing or their are too many hoops to jump through I just don't bother, NOT so at RRD.  I like and appreciate that it's plain and simple and right to the point.  Thanks RRD

I am entering this at

You can get your three favorite things at Chocolate Coffee and Cards  (for the boys ) who doesn't love those three things, I couldn't make it without my coffee
