What A Guy! My Hero!

Hey, Hey Hey! It's Monday! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Are you ready for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion?!

This week, our theme is, "What A Guy!" Awww don't grumble and groan! I know making masculine cards isn't everyone's favorite theme, but we need to show some love to the guys and boys in our lives too!

Our sponsor this week is Bonni, of Dude Time Doodles (Bonibleaux Designs). Bonni supplies us with some fun male images to work with, and is offering one lucky winner some digi's from her shop! She has some fabulous new releases out! You Don't want to miss out on your chance to win!

Come on over to Craft Your Passion?! and play along in our, "What A Guy" challenge!

My card today, was so fun to create, because it reminds me of my husband and how he hates spiders. (I know the bug in the image isn't a spider, but it still fits with my story) Years ago, I had ordered a bunch of stamping supplies online, around Halloween. When the box came, the company had sprinkled in a bunch of those black plastic spider rings. Hubby was gone to work. Purely innocently, and not even thinking about it, I dumped the plastic spider rings in the trash can. I didn't realize at the time, that one of the spider rings had landed on the edge of a white paper plate in the trash can. Well, later that day, hubby came home and went to throw something away, and seen the spider in the trash can, and went berserk. Next thing I know, he's yelling and beating on the trash can! I run in there, and there he is screaming battle crys and beating the crap out of the trash can, screaming, "Die Die Die!" I'm sorry to say it was quite hysterical at first, and I couldn't help but laugh! It took me ten minutes to calm him down and get it through to him that the spider was plastic! LOL

So, now you can see why this image cracks me up and reminds me of hubby!

I went with two different patterned papers for my card... Stripes and Polkda dots, both papers from my stash. I used ribbon, also from my stash, across the corner pieces of DP, and trimemd it with a punched edge, from a Martha Stewart punch. The image is by Dude Time Doodles and is colored with Promarkers. I used buttons off of an old shirt to embellish the opposite corners.
