Speedy The Cat Has a New Challenge!

It is number 13 to be exact! This week we are asked to create masculine cards. I decided to make two. My first card is using stamps from Mark's Finest Paper.

I used the Tropical Vacation set, and look how I used Speedy! I stamped him in the gazebo waiting for his master to return. I think he is really missing someone. To keep it masculine, I used digi polka dot paper and ribbon knots instead of bows. The structure is also digi which I colored in Copics. My inside and outside sentiments are from the same stamp set.

This next card, was made with stamps from River City Rubber Works, that have been laying on my desktop for ages. I just love those Groucho glasses! Since many of our friends have been hitting milestone birthdays lately, I figured this one would be super to have on hand. I think it is a great "guy" image. The papers are from my scrap bin and I added large brass brads and twine for accents.

Well today they are telling us to stay inside because of such poor air quality, so I guess it is a stamping day. Works for me. I am not partial to 100+ degrees. Keep cool!

These cards are GREAT!! I LOVE speedy sitting in the window and that Groucho image works perfectly with those big square brads for a great guy card!
You asked where I get my supplies? Anywhere! I love L&L in Ephrata, Michaels, Inspired Treasures in Boyertown, and many online stores, I also love SU! where I'm a stampers 10 member. Are you going to the CK convention next week at Valley Forge? I missed the last 2, but hope to make it this year. They always have great product at the vendors faire!

I love how Speedy is sitting there waiting! Makes me think of my sweet Sam who I gave insulin shots to the last two years of his life. And he never complained!

Okay...I SERIOUSLY love this, and Speedy the Cat DOES wait for his master, but his "SPOT" is on the back of the sofa looking out the big bay window in our living room!

FABULOUS card!
