Ugggh, guy cards . . .

Why is it I usually draw a blank when it comes to creating guy cards?! It's like my mojo cringes and says . . . "oh, no, I can't do those!" I love to create cards for my friends and family, but I am always WAY too hard on myself when it comes to creating guy cards. They really aren't all that bad. I usually try not to use ribbon or glitter, but this time . . . well, glitter was needed to add the shimmer for the star and the shiny rockin' guitar!! Woohooo, wouldn't be a true rock star without some shimmer or shine, right?!

So . . . I used Heidi's sketch from a while ago (sorry it took me so long, Heidi) that I told her I would, then I got busy with Mom and Dad's mini scrapbook that I just didn't get a chance to use it. It has been all sketched out and post-it noted (not sure that is a true verb) here on my desk though to use.

Next, I have to try out Sparkle's sketch . . . check it out at PaperCraftPlanet for our June challenge -- link above.
Card details: The rock star monkey and sentiment are from the Rockin Out set and the dp is from BasicGrey LimeRickey (not currently in stock) but you can win the last pack from KLSNS at our group over at PaperCraftPlanet this month.
Thanks for stoppin by!! :)

Now, this is a totally rockin' creation!!!! It makes me want to buy some Aqua Net and grab the spandex dress shoved in the back of my closet!!! Yeah, right, as if that dress would fit...even if it is made of stretchable fabric=0} Hahaha!!! I love all the sparklies; and your right, you can't have an electric guitar without some sparkles!! Love it!!!

I have something for you on my blog. Thank you for your awesome friendship!!!
