CLEAN SHIRT!

Good Morning!
Today sees the start of another Challenge over at House-Mouse & Friends  Eeeeeek!
and here is my Second GDT card... I LOve the fact that I'm also commenting whilst I'm GDT cause I get to see lots of different House-Mouse Stamps..The downside is I want more stamps lol....




Challenge #166 Anything Masculine....

I've stamped and coloured this little cutie with Copics...Paper/Button/Embellishment from stash.
Masculine always seems hard! It's what to put on or leave off that's the problem..
 So I thought I'd try a Shirt! ...I hand stitched the 'cuff' added a button and a little chain/heart...Hubby used to have a shirt just like this lol, many moons ago...

Chrissy, this is just as precious as you can get. I can't believe you hand stitched this cuff. Besides a talented card maker, you have quite the gift for sewing. This is a terrific idea for a guy card. Yeah, maybe someone forgot to tell you that these little mice are totally addictive. We should start a HM Anonymous Club. LOL. It's great to have you with us Guest Designing this month. Have a wonderful day.

You did a great job with this masculine card! I agree that female cards are much easier.

Chrissy, what a unique and fun card. Love the stitching on the cuff and the little mouse in the coffee cup on the tie is perfect and that pop of red really shows him off! Super idea and expertly made, love it!

I find masculine hard to do when I have to, but when I'm just puttering through my stash I come up with LOTS of ideas based on what I see. That said, HM and masculine will be a challenge I think.

Love your shirt card! Very clever and quite professional looking office wear there!

Sue from Oregon said...

Oh so creative...image having a mouse on your tie?? LOL...that would certainly be a hit at work! Wonderful card!

SOOO super cute Chrissy. I love that tie, but the arm too..now that is just sensational. Incredibly fun card and good luck resisting ALL those tempting stamps. I'm not sure I'd have the will power to.
