Robyn's Fetish Card for a Man

OK, so today we're starting the Robyn's Fetish Challenge a little late.

We still haven't heard from our DT Coordinator (she is in New Jersey) and I just can't get her out of my head! Especially after seeing the new storm that is heading our way! My thoughts and prayers go out to all those still struggling with the "Franken-storm" aftermath!!

Our challenge is sponsored this week by The Crafty Pad.

The theme of the challenge is Cards for Men, and this is one of my biggest challenges! I always lean toward the "cute" and "girly", so I had to reach inside for this one!

The image I got to play with is "Albert Snoozin". He comes with a cute sentiment "A Man's Work is Never Done", but it didn't ring any bells for me in terms of getting creative. The image just makes me think of my dad, who will be turning 69 next month! Last Spring, he took my boys on several fishing expeditions and they even caught a few! I made a door hanging for him, sorta like one of those ones you see in shop windows when they've left for lunch... hopefully they really will be back soon!

I colored the image with Copics, then added a little MS Glitter on the water. A little glitter tape border and the "Swiss Dots" embossing folder really added quite a bit of texture. The hands on the clock really move and I can't remember the name of the font... just one of the many thousands I've hoarded! (-:

Here's a closer look at Albert... quite a handsome fella, don'cha think? I know my Dad doesn't follow my blog, so I think this will be a cute gift for him! (-:

I hope you'll stop over to the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog to take a look at the marvelous manly cards my teammies have created and if you're up for a challenge, why don't you give this one a try!?!
