You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

A Man Card for Cardz TV Challenge #4 "It's a Guy Thing"

I think 'man cards' are definitely harder to make than for a woman.  It took me so much longer to come up with an idea, to play with the details and to avoid bling and laces. But, here it is:
Do you think the 'King of the Road' inference is telling my age?

To make this I used the following Cricut cartridges:
My Community for the truck;
Everyday Paper Dolls for the road;
Best of 2007 for the trees and the crown-like image over the 'N';
George & Basic Shapes for the lettering.
It took a bit of work with distressing and doodling to take away the 'flat' look of the card.  Finally, I was satisfied.

This is only a 3 day challenge.  To see other entries at Cardz TV, click here.

Happy Creating.
