Manly Monday Dad's Green shirt+ GIVEAWAY

Hi all. Welcome back to Manly Monday. I have some awesome cards from crafters all over the world in today's post. There is a card for every man in this post. I'm lovin' it! Click on the blog title above the clip of their card to be directed to the blog post where the masculine card is waiting for you to stop by and give it a kick butt {I'm trying to sound manly because if it was me I would say "a fabulous.."} comment. Everybody loves comments and it doesn't take that long to say if you like their card. 

Giveaway Time: Come, come now, I'll give you some incentive to checking out the cards for today. I will choose 2 people to receive a fabulous goodie bag filled with crafty stuff to play with. All you have to do is comment on one or all 13 blogs-that includes mine, for your chance to win. Of coarse commenting on more blogs increases your odds but you do whatever you can do. 

You need to follow Cre8iveCindy on either Google Friends Connect or with Bloglovin'. Both of these options are on my right sidebar just a skip down the page.

I will pick two comments randomly from random blogs to win the prizes which could include stamps and paper pads to ink pads and more things I have to give away. I also have Copic markers that need a home but I will talk with the winners about them first and if neither need those colors the markers will go back in to giveaway tote,

I would love to see Manly Monday go all over the web or just Blogland. It would make a happy camper if they just came to see the guy cards but it's more then likely the giveaway part that will attract people. If you prefer to do social media plugs, I'm at the following:

Facebook Cindy Groh
Instagram as Cre8iveCindy
Twitter as mcscraps

Promote this giveaway to others online and leave me a link to check it out on this post. One comment per Insta, one comment for Facebook, and one comment for Twitter. Leave me a comment about what you did in the comments here. And Hey I'll trow this out there, is anyone a badge maker for blogs? If you are a badge blog artist I would like to exchange emails to make a badge for the Manly Monday posts. Please.

So one with the cards:

For my card I used a button up shirt stamp by Unity Stamp Company. I stamped it with black Hero Arts ink onto watercolor paper by Ranger. I used Peerless watercolors to color in the image. The image was then trimmed down and an eyelet placed in the top. The patterned paper on the left is by Cosmo Cricket and the green on the right is by Die Cuts with a View. The green paper made me think of like football plays that a coach would draw for his players. Idk I could be way off on that. The devoted sticker is by K and Co and the father die cut is by Clearly Besotted. The white frame is the leftover from a rectangle {Spellbinders} that I attached vellum to the backside.

Thanks for looking.

  6. Fabulous card Cindy! I love the bright green - it's a perfect match with the browns you've used. Thanks for showcasing my card! :)


  7. Hi, Cindy! I like your shirt card - so clever to make the Polaroid frame and I like the patterned papers you used!

    What a great idea for a giveaway! I just checked out all the cards and left some love for all.

    I remember when I was featured here the first time, I was so excited, I went around to all the other features and left a comment, but only two features returned the favour and one was a bloggy friend of mine LOL! I was a bit disappointed as I thought it would be fun for everyone to visit each other. Then when I was featured the second time, I chose just 2 or 3 to visit, but only one person came around.

    I love seeing the inspiration here for masculine cards because I find them tough to make. I wanted to make more manly cards myself this year and I haven't made many at all. Thank you for your Manly Monday feature - I hope it does spread over blogland!

  8. I tweeted about your giveaway here:

    Sorry I don't have Instagram - I think you need a Smartphone to join. I don't work so I only have an old-fashioned flip phone hehe.

  9. I sent you a friend request on facebook. In the meantime, I shared your giveaway on my timeline here:

    As for blog badges, yes - I think you definitely need one! I looked for your badge when I was featured because I wanted to add it to my blog to help spread the word. I'm sure a lot of people design them, but I only know of Lisa Decosse at Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.

    She's a blogging friend of mine and she designed two badges for me as a surprise - she did an amazing job - you can check them out on my blog.

    Thanks again, Cindy!

  10. Gorgeous card Cindy! Thank you for showcasing my card, such an honor.
