Rainy Tuesday

It's a rainy morning in Wisconsin. It's the kind of day that's great for curling up on the couch with a good book. A great movie would be another good day to spend part of the day, but I think ALL of us agree that the best thing to do on a rainy day like today is to STAMP! :)

To help you get your mojo going Krista over at Cards & Things Challenges has posted a new color challenge and BELIEVE me it was a challenge. Do you see a card when you look at these colors?
If you do, please share them! We'd love to see your creation!

I made a masculine card for teenage boys. I have 3 nephews and I have NEVER made them a card since they turned about 10 years old, because let's face it guy cards are a challenge, but a teenage guy card is nearly impossible. Stampin' Up! did a GREAT thing when they introduced Extreme Elements and all the extreme sport stamps. KUDOS SU! If you have boys in your life, you can't go wrong with these stamps!

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Extreme Elements, On Your Birthday, Extreme Skateboarder

Ink: Barely Banana, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy

Cardstock: Barely Banana, Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, Whisper White

DSP: Pattern Pack III (Night of Navy-grid)

Accessories: Small Star Punch, paper piercer, mat pack, gold brads


  1. OMG! You did a fabulous job on this one!
    Was in doubt wether or not buying these stampsets, but wow!! I really MUST have them! :)

  2. very nice card! I came here from a link on the LNS blog finds of the day. Love what you did with those 3 colors to come up with this!

  3. Great card Wendy! This is perfect for teen age boys. You hit the nail on the head with this one!
