Southern Girls - Slugs, Snails and Puppy Dog's Tails



Hi Blogging Beauties,

I have actually stepped down form Southern Girls and this could be my very last post for them.  Lou is having a baby literally now, so they asked if I can stay on a little bit longer until they sort out their DT call.  So I get to participate in another challenge! This one is "Slugs, Snails and Puppy Dog's tails...to make a card for the men or boys in your life.  I made this card for my brother Paddy.  He turned 27 years old a few days ago. When we were little kids he used to have ferrets as pets.  So when I saw this image of a ferret from Meljen's Designs I knew it would be perfect for him.


When he opened the card and had finished reading it he said "Cards make you feel so good dont they".  Coming from a 27 year old male I was so happy with this comment...it was one of those rewarding moments when you feel like someone appreciates your work.

I coloured with the following Copics:

Browns: E47, E37, E35, E33, E31
Greens: G99, YG63
Outline: BG10

I also embossed the papers, because it was so clean and simple I thought the embossing might add a bit of interest.  The brown paper already had stars on it and I embossed stars over the top.

Here is a picture of my brother on the night of his birthday with his gorgeous girlfriend Renae.


 So what are you waiting for? Head on over to Southern Girls and link up your male card or project!  There are great prizes to be won as always!
