Tiddly Inks, Craft Your Days Away, Paper Creations

I must start today by remembering Maryann, my father-in-law's wife who passed away in a tragic motorcycle accident one year ago today.  In some ways it's been a really long year, and in other ways, it seems like it all happened just last week.  I hope you are resting in peace, Maryann.  Memorial Day will really never be the same again.
I don't know about you all, but I have a hard time making "manly" cards.  I just can't NOT do cute.  LOL  But I wanted to play along with the Tiddly Inks Challenge - Manly Men so I came up with this sorta-kinda manly cutie.... (hee hee) - I am also entering this into the:

I used the adorable "Geekatude" image from Tiddly Inks, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and Stampin' Up! Markers.  Cardstock, DP and large brown brads are from SU!  Button is from foof-a-la.

I also have this cool card for the:
Paper Creations Challenge - sketch

I used the awesome Bumble Bee Girlie image from Dilly Beans, colored with Prismacolor Pencils, mineral spirits, and Prismacolor markers.  Cardstock in Basic Black and YoYo Yellow from SU!  DP is from 7Gypsies - buttons from my stash.  This card was made for someone special, she'll know it's her if she sees this.  :)

This post was done ahead of time and scheduled to publish on Memorial Day, so I hope you all have a safe & relaxing day!  Peace.
