Friday FUN!!

It's Friday and time for more fun! This week's challenge is hosted by yours truly! I decided to really challenge our skills this week. The challenge if you choose to accept it is.....to make a masculine card WITHOUT using the colors Green or Blue. You can use any other colors- just NO green or blue. Sounds easy right? I hope so- I want you to play along with us! Upload your creations in to the SCS Gallery using the keyword FFC3. Also, check out these blogs for more inspiration:

Katherine- Blame it on the Mojo


I decided to make a card for my boss. Since some management changes were made a couple of months ago- I really like my current boss (unlike my old one.....). National Boss' Day is October 16th so this card will go to him on that day. I hope he likes it. I chose Red, Black, White and Kraft for the card. Since it's for a man I tried to keep it simple. He LOVES coffee so I used the coffee cup from Unity's Dad of All Kinds. . I just neglected to ink the part of the stamp that said DAD and then stamped BOSS with a small alpha set I had laying around (not sure where it came from though...) I paper-pieced the other two coffee cups to match the back ground paper.





Stamps: Unity Dads of All Kinds
Paper: SU Kraft, POP Real Red, Basic Black, PTI White
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red
Accessories: Red Brads.

This is a perfect masculine card! Your boss will love it, and will hopefully appreciate all the time and effort you put into making it just for him. You should ask for a raise on October 17th. Thanks for the fun challenge, Sherry!

Hey Sherry, can we start a thread in the Unity forum for this every Friday? I couldn't remember where I saw this and I'd LOVE to have a place to go look at everyone's friday creations :)
Thanks for considering!
