It's that time again...another challenge at Dottie's World.
This week Adele wants us to "bring out the old and bring in the new"
This is what she asked:
"As we have entered a New Year I would like you to look back at your "Crafts of the Past" dig out something from your stash, blow off the dust and put it to use with a new item that you have recently bought or been given as a pressie! As long as you use a Charmed Download, the rest is up to you."
So I had to make a card for my brother inlaw Terry for his 45th birthday, and I thought that this Charmed Download image form the Mikey collection, that you can get HERE; would be perfect.
I RARELY make guy cards....but I am really trying to keep up with all my bday cards this year so I had to make my brother inlaw a card. I like how it turned out. I tried to add a lot of personalized elements to it.
Terry is a HUGE Nebraska Huskers fan so I added the "N" to Mikey's shirt.
I circled the 44 and 1 on the little die cut for 45.
and I also hand stamped his name on the little name plate.
Here are the complete details:
I colored the image in with my copics of course.
The paper is My Mind's Eye-Ooh La La for Him, the die cuts are also from the same collection
The sentiment "Happy Birthday" is Close To MY Heart-stamped in black
I stamped Terry with a Close To MY Heart "Hodge Poge" Alphabet stamp set. The buttons, brads and spiral clip are CTMH as well.
Now for the challenge-the spiral clip has been in my stash for years...I have a whole container of them and can't even think of the last time I used them.
The paper was my most recent purchase; it was in the clearance section of my Local Scrap Store-but it was MY most recent purchase. :o}
Thanks for stopping by, have a fabby Sunday-and make sure you put your feet up and relax-if your Christmas was anything like mine-you NEED it. ;o)
