Gamer Bambino's

Now this should have been my entry for the Blue Challenge #22 @ Make It Colourful. Oh well, but it does qualify for the Squigglefly Challenge #102 Make it Masculine SFC102. If you don't use a Squigglefly image you aren't eligible for the prize, but you are still able to enter.

My husband is a HUGE gamer and will just adore this card. This image represents him more then any other Fathers Day card I have EVER made him. Gaming or Mountain Biking are his truest love's beyond family. So I am super excited to finally share with all of you, what is now my FAVORITE image.

It's a actually 3 Tiddly Ink images combined into one: Gamer, FlutterBy and Big Bad Dad. I asked Christy if we could modify Gamer so that it would represent both my littlest ones. They just love to game with their Daddy. Christy very graciously played with my mock up to come up with this TRES FABULOUS image.

I am not loving the shading on my daughters hair, but I ADORE how my son's crown turned out. His hair is very sticky up in the back so this is a good representation.

The card layout I have been wanting to do for a while, but never got around to it. It's June's Sketch For You to Try by i{heart}2stamp. I haven't participated in all of this years sketches, but have done quite a few. They always have fantastic samples.

As well, my fabulous Rrrred rrrrrick rrrrack is my "R" embelishment for the Crafts for Eternity challenge - C4E #24. How awesome is that idea for a challenge, just give a letter as the inspiration, leave the door waaay open. Very fun.
