...faded minds, youth were old, years were so unkind...

Its New Year's eve...what does everyone have planned?? I am hoping to go to my friend Stef's house, play some games, order Chinese and drink some beer :) She hasn't been feeling well though so we shall see!! :(

For my card today i decided to work on getting caught up on some man bday cards! I have some images printed but its so much easier to make girl cards! lol The image is from Kenny K and i coloured him with copics and cut him out (i printed him too big to go in a nestie! lol

My papers are PTI white, kraft, basic black and to the nines dsp from SU. This is great paper for man cards! I then distressed everything!! lol

My sentiment is from SU called On Your Birthday and i finished off the card with some black pearls (that don't look like pearls so they are ok for a man card! ;)

I am entering this card in the following challenges-

Incy Wincy- distressing
Colour Q- kraft, black, grey and olive
SCS- sketch

Kenny K is one of my fave companies!! His images are soooooo me:)

I love Hanglar and Stanglar:) this was a card kit, the papers are awesome!

I never use purple, but i love it, esp paired with black.

I got this stamp as a gift for something and i think hes so cool! I don't make enough man cards!!

Magnolias are another one of my faves! I love the way i coloured Tilda's dress:)

Halloween is my fave time of year but i never make anyone cards! Maybe i will start in 2011!

I was asked to make a card for a teen that liked Avril Lavine, love the way it turned out.

Not sure why i like this card so much but i had a hard time giving it away!
