Rockin' It!!!!

Hello, Happy Tuesday!!! It is pouring here today and I can't complain because it is so dry from having no rain. I guess it will give me time indoors to finish up all the things I never seem to get around to especially because I head back to work next Tuesday.

This week over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations we have a really fun challenge, "Off The Edge".
We would like to see you create something that has something hang off you creation. Mine is my saying. I can never seem to find that little extra bit of room at the end when it is time to put on a sentiment or a embellishment. That is what this challenge is all about this week. Come play with us and show us how you "hang off the edge".

My son's birthday was a week ago and this is the card I created for him. When he was really little he loved any kind of equipment. My husband's family owned a construction company and my son could sit for hours (days if we would let him) in the equipment especially the front end loaders just imagining that he was running them. That is why this Kenny K image was perfect for his card this year. When he opened it everyone laughed saying it was like talking a picture of him and putting it on the card!

There is something about little boys that they love the heavy equipment & trucks. My niece (2 years old) loves all diggers, bulldozers, truck cranes and so on. I don't get it LOL. Great card, I'm sure every little boy will love it! Thank you for joining us at the Celebrate the Occasion challenge and hope to see you back again. Hugs

what a magnificently made card Mary, you have truy excelled yourself here. Everything is just PERFECT, the choice of colours, your papers and the great use of the embossing folder along with the sticky backed pearls. But your crowning glory is truly your colouring which is just wonderful. I would have been delighted to have received this when I was a lad, I would have know that someone really cared about me to have taken this much trouble for me, just superb. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes challenge at Kenny K's Krafty Krew Challenge this week, good luck and I hope we will be seeing you again in the not too distant future.

Wonderful masculine card, Mary! Thank you so much for joining us in our "Lots of Layers" challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner this week, and also for our "Color Crazy" challenge at Tuesday Throwdown. Nobody would know these are colors you don't normally use because you have done them so well! Good luck in the draw and I hope we see you again next week.
