A Boy And His Dog-Creative Moments Challenge #141

Here I am once again with a fantastic challenge from Creative Moments Challenge Blog.

For Challenge #141 the theme is a minimum of 2 flowers on your creation.

My sponsor this challenge is

The image that I have chosen is Cinema Chaplin. It is an adorable image of a boy and his dog. I have boys and dogs so this one tugs at my heart. ❤️ I don’t very often use flowers on masculine cards so this is a bit of a challenge for me but I am up for it!

I used Graphic 45 Raining Cats & Dogs paper. One of the papers had a beautiful floral print in gorgeous, vintage colours. The colours of this floral paper were incorporated into the Cinema Chaplin stamp as to coordinate the image with the paper. The floral paper is what I used as the flowers requested in the theme. I layered up several patterned papers and knotted lace ribbon to give the look of depth while using 3D adhesive to lift the characters.

Products used: Mari digi image, Spectrum Noir markers, Chameleon markers, Graphic45 paper sticker and chipboard , Recollections cardstock, miscellaneous ribbon.

Hockey Family-Cricut Style

You may or may not know that we are a hockey family that doesn’t play ice hockey! 😂We watch hockey. We play street hockey. We play knee hockey. We talk hockey. We collect hockey cards. We talk stats! We love the stats! My boys DO however play ball hockey which is basically, hockey off ice!

Every season has playoffs, hopefully ending in a trip to the medal games. We have made it to the medal rounds a few times before but have always come up empty. The one constant in our playoffs is the t-shirts that I wear to cheer on my teams! For the past few seasons I have used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut and design my t-shirts. I used my Cricut Easy Press to press it.

Here are some of my past t-shirts. As you can see our teams have been the Grizzlies and the Wolves.

Again we are on the Grizzlies and Wolves but last playoffs I only made one Wolves shirt because both boys ended up on Wolves team but in different age groups. This time I needed another Wolves shirt to wear so I made this one for me.

My younger son wanted to get in on the T-shirt action so we made him this one which he will proudly wear this weekend to his brother’s games.

Unfortunately our team drew the short straw so we have a game at 7am on Sunday morning! 😴 I made a shirt for the occasion! I love this shirt so much that I will be wearing it a lot even when we aren’t in playoffs!

I love using my Cricut Explore Air 2 and Easy Press. It gives us the flexibility to create what we want, when we want it! You can bet that as long as my boys are playing ball hockey I will be making playoff shirts!

You will find that clicking the images above will take you directly to Creative Moments, and the video game guy at Bugaboo Stamps.

The image that I chose is Video Game Guy. I love this video game guy! I chose this image because it reminds me of my sons, especially my oldest. Gaming & snacks, with a little garbage thrown in, is his normal. LOL! It pretty much sums up their free time when they aren’t playing ball hockey.

Here is my video game guy project. I decided to make an easel card. It has been ages since I have made one. This card is approximately 6″x6″. This card is the perfect size to contain gift cards! 😉

<<<<<<<<

I coloured the video game guy with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, the “Fun and Games” and circuit board are part of the CTMH Tech Speak Stamp Set. Also from CTMH is the blue cardstock and brads. The fun, game-themed paper is from a stack of Crate Paper called Boys Rule. I used Recollections kraft cardstock and black Staz-on ink to complete the card.

I have also entered into the following challenges.
