Unity Challenge Wednesday- It's a Boy (or a card for a boy)

This week's Unity Challenge for Wednesday was to make a masculine card. At first they wanted to challenge us to have our hubbies or boyfriends make a card, but since a lot of us said there was NO WAY that would ever happen we changed it to a card for a boy instead of made by a boy. If you are interested in this challenge and your Guy Thinks He can stamp - you can still participate- check it out here: Hip Hop Hubby Challenge. I would love for my boyfriend to try this and I think if he had the time he would humor me and try....but he is back to working full speed this week. Maybe one day!

My card uses the camper stamp from Unity's August KOTM (retired). I love this little stamp. The sentiment is from Simply Said. I kept everything simple since guys don't like a lot of frou frou LOL. I think that's why I don't like making masculine cards- I NEED frou frou!! The camper is paper-pieced with the DP and I accented it with brown brads. (no ribbon for guys, darn it!!) In case you can't see it, the card says "Good Things are Coming Your Way." Appropriate for a camper, don't ya think. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog- I hope that you will play along with us. When you upload your card in the SCS Gallery please use keyword USC08 so we can find your card easily. Be sure to check out the other Unity Junkies- their blog are on my sidebar.

Stamps: Unity August KOTM, Simply Said
Paper: SU: Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, DP: Frances Meyer Pumpkin Pie Plaid (from my LSS)
Ink: Brown Stazon, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel
