Fishing Riley


Yay!! The first masculine card I've made that I really truly like! Uses one of those super cute Riley images Sparkle sent me. This is going to be for my BIL for Father's Day. Now the problem is this.... I need to make a card that is at least as awesome if not more so for my hubby because really, you can't give your hubby's brother a card better than you give him; but I can't find any fun images for him! Paul is a total gamer guy. He's not into sports, can't cook let alone grill (lol), not really outdoorsy, he's a classic geek ^_~ My geek! Anyway, he's either at a desk working, on a computer, or playing the 360. He helps out lots with the girls so something like that might work except that I already know I'm going to have them make a card for him. And I want something special from me since I haven't done something really nice for Father's day in a while and I'm just completely at a loss at what to do now for his card! Him and his dad are really hard to make cards for because they are not regular guy guys. Leave a comment with a suggestion ^_~ I'd love to hear any ideas or if you've seen a cute gamer guy/office guy stamp around let me know!! Now for the card stats : CTMH papers and embellies, Riley colored with CTMH markers and highlighted with my white gel pen. Colors are indian corn blue, outdoor denim, barn red, and cranberry.

Your Riley cards are so adorable! You color so great! You've got mad skills. :) I got your package today! Thanks for the goodies! I can't wait to play with them!

Lizzie Anne has a set of stamps called All Guy and it has a computer and a video game.

LOVE this card! I am going to have to get some Riley's! I haven't even had a chance to play with the ones Sparkle sent yet. All the guys in my family (except my hubby) fish, so this one's a must. Love the colors and papers.

We did an alphabet book for dh that was fun. I used coasters for the cover and did a page for each letter and held it together with a jump ring. The boys helped me come up with words for each letter--it was great. Poor guy has so many mini-albums I've made, he's running out of space--LOL! I'm trying to think of something good too. His b-day and Father's Day are both June, so it's a double whammie.
