Not girly, but MASCULINE!

oh man that's a hard thing to do..... hehe! monday brings you another challenge at Lollipop Crafts!! and if you're masculine challenged like me, this week's challenge will or atleast should, boost your mojo....

Lollipop Girl Alanna is challenging you to get MASCULINE this week with challenge #45.... put away all those girly things and bring out your bold masculine papers and embellies and get crafting.... i'm sure you have to make a birthday card for that special guy in your life or you may need a head start on next year's birthdays.... either way, we are telling you to set the glitters, diamonds and pearls aside and bring out those manly gadgets... or are you like me and have a limited stash??? LOL, i a m really stumped when it comes to cards or creations for guys... so this was a big challenge for me...

Digital Delights are our fabulous sponsor this week... Yes, they are new to our sponsor list but you'll love the cutie images in store.... go and check them out and tell them Lollipop Crafts sent you their way!! One lucky random winner will receive a great prize.... wanna know what it is? check out the challenge post on the LC blog for details on how to play and what prize is at stake to win!
did i make the challenge or what?! i'm telling you, it's so hard for me to make masculine creations... but i just knew what image to use to help me with my accomplishment... this handsome dude from TGF's My Guy set.... aahhh! he's such a hottie... hehe (blush).... frankly, i was pleased that during one of my shopping trips to Ross' i was able to snag a paper pack that was geared to guys.... pulling out the papers from the pack i chose to work with 3 different pieces... no intentions on doing so, but i realized after putting the card together that i used my alma mater colors... maroon and blue!! woohoo, double whammy! ok i had to add that in... tempted to add happy birthday but instead i looked through TGF's Anya Says set and pulled out a few words to put together... "Keep Rockin'" and "Superstar" perfectly matching the DP.... hehe... hmmm, someone didn't put away all her girly things.... LOL....

i'm also submitting this into TGF's FFCB Farm Fresh Friday challenge - Buttons... since i added buttons on this creation... =D

oh so i asked the hubs, "does this card look masculine/guyish to you?" his reply, "well, it's metro!" can someone tell me what he meant???? LOL.... i was not pleased with his definition.... haha!

hop on over to LC and check out what masculine creations the Lollipop Girls have to share with you too.... thanks for stopping in!! hope i've inspired you to play along with us this week or get crafty!!
