Manly Monday

I have a half an hour to get this post up-time starts now. DING!
Hey everyone welcome back to another week of Manly Monday. I won't bore you with fluff so here we go!

Pia's Papir og Perler

Purple Glo Creations

The Joy of Cards

Queen Bee Paper Crafts

I didn't make it in the half an hour. I only made it this far. Lol.

Cardmaking Passion

Weren't those great? I love to see the same image two different ways. That painter image is adorable.

For my card I used a Kenny K digital stamp. I colored in Dirt Bike Mike with distress markers, distress ink and a water pen. I'm not too impressed with how the bike turned out but I'm sure the 15 year old nephew won't complain about it. I'll know better next time for sure.
So there's not much to the card, just some cardstock from my stash, a Stampin Up Bitty Banners stamp and die using Close to my Heart ink and brads by The Paper Studio and Eyelet Outlet.

Thanks so much for stopping by. BTW the post took me 44 minutes to get it all in. I'll have to challenge myself to a lesser time next week-just for fun.
