How much Plaid is too much Plaid?

Thought I would share another Girls Creative Getaway card :)
I made this card with the paper pad "Oxford" by Basic grey.
I am not one to know my brands....so had to run downstairs to get the name of this paper pad ;)

Seriously how much more masculine could this card be...
Plaid- check
Boy image- check
No flowers- check
Black used-check
I guess I could have added some metal ;)

 This stamps was either given to me or I purchased it from a friend, so I don't know the name of it. But I am pretty sure it is a Greeting Farm stamp.
Coloured him in with my Copics.
It seems like forever since I picked up my markers :(  I miss my babies.  

The inside of my card...yup left over paper and my recipe/index cards.
Now that I look at this, I wish I would have backed the pattern papers with some black cardstock.....or at least inked the edges with black ink.

Onto My Day:
I took Ashley to the doctor to get her stitches removed early this morning.
She took a video of the doctor removing her stitches on her Iphone.....I sure love this girl :)
Bad thing is....it looks like it has opened up a bit. There isn't any blood, but there was a bit of clear fluid and it looks open. So I made some make shift butterfly stitches and hope that helps it heal closed.
Poor girl is going crazy not being able to wear her high heels.....and I mean she wears super high heels.
And patience is not her strong point. Just like her dad ;)

I had so many plans today...but ended up watching Supernatural with Heather most of the day. Besides getting her to do the wash and hanging up the laundry in between shows.

Hope you all had a creative Tuesday :)

  1. Another cute image, Tracy! Metal would have been the "one more" masculine element, as you said. ;0)
    As long as the fluid is clear, that is a good thing, right?

  2. Great masculine card...Just perfect with the plaid!
    Cute image too!

  3. Such a cute card! Haven't mustered the energy to create today, maybe tonight? Hope your DD's incision heals up ok! In the ER my mom uses superglue a lot (but don't use it if there is any chance of pus/drainage/infection)..eep.

  4. another wonderful card! I need to make more to use up some of this paper!

  5. So cute! (but manly too). Love all the plaid-pile it on!

  6. I love the plaid :) very masculine. Hope Ashley's foot is okay. I'm with her on the heels. I have really short legs, i call them sausage links, and heels help them look longer. I wear them everyday at work. I would be going crazy too. Tell her to hang in there though, she doesn't want to cause more damage. After hanging up the laundry i bet you're even more anxious for that dryer :)

  7. Adorable card!
    And I always forget plaid for masculine.
    I really struggle with masculine cards!

    Ouch! Hope Ashley's foot feels better soon!

  8. Such a wonderful card - definitely masculine:-) Love the papers. TFS

  9. Love the plaid and the image is really cute :)

  10. Such a cute image and perfect with plaid!

  11. Such a cute card! Love it for a boy!

  12. Adorable card-I love the plaid.
    Tell your daughter that ballet flats are very "in" right now. I just picked up a super cute pair at Target with blue and bright green flowers and had about 10 women stop and ask me where I got them. Best $10 spent ever. :)

  13. He is adorable...course you could have paper pieced a flannel shirt in him. Lol. Just kidding

  14. Aw, I hope Ashley's foot is healing okay. I used to be all about my high heels too, until I started teaching. Now I wear moccasins to work!

    It sounds like you had a nice relaxing day. Those are my favorite kind!

    The card is great, I love all of the plaid!

  15. What a fun card! I find male cards so tricky - it's so hard isn't it not to add a butterfly or a sprinkling of glitz :) Love the papers you've used on this one - definitely a manly man card! :)


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
