A Cute Little Dude!

Happy Monday everyone! Welcome to a new week. And, just in case you need something to celebrate, today is officially known as "Opposites Day". Don't ask me how they come up with this stuff... I have no clue and I just find some of these things hilarious. But you can read more about this obscure holiday here if you are so inclined. It's certainly not anywhere as funny as last Friday which was 'Measure Your Feet' day!!

 
I took some time this evening to finish up this project and a start a few others. This card definitely has a masculine feel and I certainly need cards like that on hand! I think I'll send this to my uncle for his upcoming 83rd birthday. He's our family patriarch...and I'm safe to post this... he's truly a relic, lives in the dark ages and doesn't own a computer!

 


 
He's a cute little dude... don't you think? I made this card with several challenges in mind...

 
My image was colored with Prisma pencils using OMS. Designer papers are from Basic Grey. Image from Whipper Snapper Designs. Hope you like it!

 
'Til next time, happy crafting and be safe in all you do!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Love the textured circle behind the "King" Dude!! If today is "opposite" day...then the opposite of me would be "A career-driven, feminist, always on the phone, spends too much time on her hair and not enough time learning about current events"...oooh that's not me at all...
