Masculine Cards with Karen's Doodles


Normally, I am kind of stumped at the thought of a masculine card, but have you seen all of the new, fabulous manly designs that Karen has added, just in time for Father's Day? They are all so fun! So with that said, you need to join our challenge this week for a masculine card. Remember, every week, we draw 3 winners, so you have a really good shot at winning some Karen's Doodles goodies!

Also, don't forget, there is still time to play in the PCP sketch challenge that Karen is sponsoring. It's a really fun sketch (you can see mine on the post below).

For my card, I used Mr. Fix-it Grandpa. I even tried to construct my card more masculine than normal - I taped my layers down using Pink Paislee decorative tape, stapled on my sentiment, and wrapped red floss around my mat. Don't you agree that Daddys can fix anything? I am so blessed to have the best Daddy ever!

Be sure to hop over to Karen's new store, and check out all of the goodies. Thirty of her most popular images are now available in red rubber!

The Town Scrapper - sketch
Simon Says PCP challenge - masculine
Delightful Sketches - texture
Creative Inspirations (Wed) - distress
S2G- Masculine
Just Us Girls - Dry embossing
Stamp, Scrap, Doodle - red, white, blue
