Enjoy Every Moment

Enjoy every moment of your weekend, if at all possible.  It's Saturday and wow, I'm in a good mood!
My son came home for the weekend, isn't that nice?

Also, what is nice is the timely challenge we have starting up at Designed2Delight today.  Father's Day is coming up soon and most of us need a card, so we are going to help you get motivated to get started!

Our challenge requirements are that entries should be a Masculine project or Father's Day project, that has NO Flowers included. That is going to be hard for some of you, but our men will appreciate it!

For my sample I used the D2D image 'Quiet Image' which can be found here.
I printed the image on water color paper and used Ranger Distress inks to water-color it. There are some things I am not happy with in the way I painted them, or didn't paint them, but that's the way it goes sometimes. *sigh*

I added a sentiment by Clear Dollar Stamps with Archival ink in Coffee.  I used a textured dark brown paper for the background, but it may look black on your monitor.

Challenges I am entering this card into are:
Bee Crafty - summer's here
Stamp Something - use a digi
Whimsie Doodles - take a dip
Aud Sentiment - for a male
Fab 'n' Funky - whatever
Simon Says Stamp - Father's Day/for a male
Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes

We have some fabulous samples done by our Design Team over at Designed2Delight that you will want to see!  Go and get some good inspiration and get busy.  We would love to see your masculine cards entered in our challenge! And you might win a D2D image!!!
