A truck full of eggs

A friend asked me for several Easter cards today, including a few "masculine" ones. So I interpreted that as " No bunnies!". Good thing I have this Loads of Love set! I colored the lady in the truck cab to look like her mother (who I think will be mailing this card). Of course her mother is 97....so I doubt she would actually be driving this truck.

For the designer paper I used several sheets from the Delicate Dots set in the Saleabration catalog. I colored the image with colored pencils, and used crystal effects on the eggs for a little texture.

So I have a few more cards to make for her tonight and tomorrow, including another "masculine" card. Any ideas? I am a little stumped for masculine non-religious Easter Cards!!

stamps: Stampin Up Loads of Love

paper: SU! Delicate Dots, Bashful Blue

accessories: nestabilities, crystal effects

technique: colored pencils

Cute card! Mostly my Easter stamps are religious or cutesy. But I have a Chip from Rubbernecker who is just a big crazy chick who could be a good image for a masculine card. How about a bunny colored dark brown to look like a chocolate rabbit? Put a big googly eye on him? Good luck!

As always your coloring is just fantastic! I think coloring is the best part of stamping (: Your pictures look great....any tips?

Very cute card --- Ok for a guy, great card. Either way, I like it! It is hard to make guy cards especially since I gravitate toward the girlish stamps. So I fall back on masculine papers, lettering, and stamps that have trees, buildings, vehicles, sports, or animals. Which reminds me, I need to make some guy cards!

This set has always been a favorite of mine, but I don't use it often enough. Great job coloring! Using that striped paper the way you did is so clever!

Hey, Kiddo, I meant to tell you that I lived in CT for-evuh before I moved to Sunshine. Hamden is one of my old stomping grounds ... I'm thinkin' right now of a Glenwood cheese dawg ...
