Hey Dude!

Welcome to May, dear friends. We had a restful May Day break. I got in touch with my inner sloth and now am having trouble sending it back! It's still raining... <sigh> The low temperature we've been having lately is provoking hibernation in the bipeds and quadrupeds at our place. This much rain is positively painful. I'm not the only one whinging and whining; even the dogs are restless (when they're not curled up & snoring). We haven't had a decent walk in quite awhile. Each time we venture out, we come scrambling back home, soaked to the undies. Ok, that's me; the dogs just smell like ... wet dogs. Urgh! Armed with a hair dryer, I ambush the pooches to be forcibly coiffered, usually into spectacularly static and soulful afros, reminiscent of the '70s. So yes, I stand by my ruling: The rain is a pain! With that verdict we have a seamless transition to today's card... didn't see that coming, did ya! I made this for our friend who fancies himself a man's man... a dude! The sketch is from Skipping Stone Designs #126 and I picked the colours from ColorQ #135.

SSD Sketch #126

The patterned papers are by Basic Grey "Life of the Party" 6x6 pack.
It's a simple card, typical of how I tackle my masculine projects.  I've used red eyelets and some red string for embellishment. Basically, that's as fancy as it gets.
I cut the yellow CS with Spellbinders Edgeabilities die. On the background paper, I've attached 4 teeny tiny blue brads. 
White CS for the sentiment, which is a mix n match of a couple of stamps from WMS's Half Pint Heros set. I'm having a blast with this set. It's not just for half pint-ers, there's plenty of fun for dudes as well! The ink is by Versacolor and the die is from Spellbinders Labels 19 set, which coincidentally, seems to match the Edgeabilities border. 
Nothing special on the inside; my usual stuff.

Thanks for hanging out with me today. I'm linking this card over at Paper Playtime #73 for the "Anything Goes" challenge and Cute Card Thursday #215 where it's "One For The Boys" this week  I'll you again soon... in dry undies!
