EVERY ACCOMPLISHMENT...
{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #44}

Wishing all my lovely readers a wonderful 2013 filled with tons of joy, health and successes!  

This week our theme for Challenge #44 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner  is Manly Cards. I used the  Old Golfer image from QKR.  I am a huge fan of QKR images - they are just so quirky and wonderful to colour.  You can purchase the Old Golfer here.   The sentiment is a freebie from the very generous and talented Hannelie - Desert Diva.

I have coloured him with H2O's, Copics (T0 and R11) and dry chalks and used a white gel pen for a highlight here and there - very amateurish using the Copics and the gel pen, but hey a girl can only dream.  the design papers are from Paper Loft.  Oh yes, and of course its a centre stepper.

I do hope you will play along with our Manly Card Challenge this week.





I am off again to link up to the following challenges with this:
Thank you once again for taking time out of your busy lives to stop by - it is greatly appreciated.

Another gorgeous card Desire. The folded flowers look super. Just shows that you can use some flowers on a male card without it looking out of place. Thanks for sharing with us at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.
