Hoopy Birthday Chase

Well the Digi Doodle Girls are making cards for the men/boys in their lives today.  I don't know about you, but I always have a challenge making a male card.  I want to put bows on everything and guys just seem to want things plain and tailored.  Well this is a great digi that I got over at the Digi Doodle Shop.  It is called All Star and you can get him here.

He is perfect for my basketball playing, 6'7" grandson, Chase's birthday card.  I colored his uniform red because his school colors are red and black and I like being able to personalize it.  My baby is turning 18 on March 3rd and graduates from high school this year.  Sob Sob.  I don't know why these babies have to grow up so fast, and this one really grew up lol.

I was so pleased the way my Cuddlebug Star Embossing folder embossed the red and kraft papers.  That folder makes such deep and dramatic creases and I think it just "popped" this card.  The net back ground is pieces of dry wall tape.  I love using it because it adds interesting texture and is self-adhesive too.  I did manage a piece of plaid ribbon (no bow though) to run through the center of the card.  Added some black pearls and a sentiment.  The sentiment was found at Tiddly Winks and I believe it is a free one.

Quick and simple but I think Chase will like it.  If not he will swear he does and I know he will like the check going inside the card.  LOL.

So get going - really challenge yourself  this week.  Hide all your lace and bows and come up with a card fit for the man in your life.  Join us over at the Digi Doodle Challenge Blog and you just may win a $10.00 gift card to shop your sweet little heart out!  They are having an awesome sale on their love/heart/Valentine digis too.  Whatcha waitin' for?  Hop on over there quick like a bunny.

Ya'll have a great week.  May your health be good, the weather sunny and  your MOJO in tip-top shape.  Hugs Peeps.
