You Rock! Monday Funday with Margie

Good morning everyone.
     Well it is once again Monday and that means that we only have 13 days until Christmas.  Are you all ready for the big day?  We have all the decorations up and as you can see from yesterdays pictures we have the stockings hung (except for Lucy's and Boo's) and we are waiting until a couple of days before Christmas to wrap the presents and put them under the tree.   As it is Mitchell is already worrying about the good list or the naughty list.  He is a good boy and I wish my little man (taller than me and 14) wouldn't worry, but he does no matter what.   lol...
     So, because it is Monday once again it also means that are having a  Monday Funday over on The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Challenge Blog.   This week Margie came up with 'No girls allowed'.  Yes, you read correctly.  It is boy theme time.  Make something for the little or big guys in your life this week.   lol.... 
     I was busy last week making some Baptism announcements for my Cousins and needed to go down to the local bookstore that carries a little bit of scrapbook products.  Of course today's challenge gave me a good excuse to buy this adorable paper pad by WeR Memory Keepers.  As you can see it has a lot of paper that look like fabric.  Jeans/corduroy and vintage video games.  lol... I just had to buy the pad and a couple of the little tags that go with the collection.   I mean I wouldn't want to make a boy card without some awesome new DP to put on it.  heehee... I had so much fun paper piecing Tyler's clothes for his big card.  I think I am addicted to paper piecing at the moment. It is a lot of fun and you still get to use your Copics to add highlights to the papers.  So, I would have to say it is a win win kind of thing.  hehee...  I am also addicted to using different Moment Ink pads on my cards at the moment.  I just love how using a dauber and some ink will give your card such depth. 
     As you can see I used CC Tyler for my card and put him with a very cute tag that looks like the old cassette tapes that we used to use all the time when I was a kid.  It came with the words 'You Rock!' on it and I used my Sakura Glaze pen to make the words pop.  I then ran over to my friend Amy's YouTube channel to get a great combo on hair colors.  You can check out all of Amy's video here.   I tried the Golden Blond on Tyler and even though it didn't come out as light as Amy's I am still very happy with how it did come out. 
     So if you haven't checked out The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Challenge blog yet be sure to head over and see what the rest of the DT has come up with.  I just know you are going to be so inspired by all of them.  You will also have a chance to win a stamp from The Greeting Farm.  I don't know about you, but I don't think you would need a better reason to play along.
     Ok guys, I had better get a move on.  I owe, I owe, so off to work I go!!!  Have a great Monday everyone and I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G

I have that same line of papers that I found at an Expo, I loved them and haven't had a chance to break them out, what I don't have is that awesome ribbon!! Brings back memories of playing Atari. So long ago, but good times. Fun boy card and I hope your son knows that Santa knows he's been a good boy.
Have a gr8 day!

This is a totally rockin' boy card Lisa! Tyler's hair came out so good... what a handsome little dude he is, LOL!
And can you believe I've never seen that WE R paper that you used?! Now I'm going to see if I can hunt it down cause it looks totally retro and awesome. Thanks for the enabling! :)
