A He-man birthday

     I am having so much fun doing these "character" cards.  I hope you guys get as big a kick out of this muscle man as you did Mexico Phil.
     This card is for my future son-in-law.  He loves to go to the gym.  Now don't get me wrong.  He looks NOTHING like this guy and doesn't want to, but he does love to work out.  When I saw this image at Mo's Digital Pencil I knew I had to make his birthday card with it.  My daughter came up with the ticket sentiment. :-)
     It doesn't have a lot of embellishments.  I told you he's a muscle guy so I ceratinly couldn't put a lot of frou frou on his card.  The images are colored with Copics and a little chalking for the sky.  I had a bunch of those blank tickets from Making Memories so I used my computer to make the sentiment and printed it out on the ticket.
     Hope Mr. Strongman gave you a chuckle today.
     I'd like to enter him in the following challenges:

Claudia & Co.--clean and simple
Tuesday Throwdown--brads or eyelets
Bunny Zoe's Crafts--one for the boys
Cheerful Stamp Pad--there is a man in my life
Creative Inspirations--digi day
The Outlawz--Copic anything goes
Bella and Bronte's(Mo's Digital)--carnival
Charisma Cardz--jokes and laughter

 Have a great day!

  3. Oh Tracy!!! How absolutely amazing! Such a fun card...and perfect for a guy who works out. I tell ya, I have been more than a bit intimidated by all the muscles...that's alot of skin to color! hahaha! But I love the idea of giving this to someone who loves the gym. I may have to get him and make a card for my son...who's also a gym rat! hehehe!! Brilliant idea...and the sentiment is perfect!! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Mo's!! Pat Frank
