Carpenter's Crack






Hello Stampers and Welcome to a New Loves Rubberstamps Weekly Challenge.  This time we are challenging you to make a tag or use a tag on your project.  I would like to thank our Sponsor this week, QKR Stampede, for providing us with any image we wanted to pick out.  That was so awesome!  Thank You!!!  The minute I saw this Carpenter Digi stamp I knew I had to have him, lol.   Now normally I am so not loving seeing a guys crack when he is bent over, lol, but when it's my 10 year olds crack, it's adorable! lol.  And every since he put his big boy panties on, he has been sporting the bend over crack, lol.  No amount of "pull up your pants" is going to work on this boy, it's just where he wears his pants and how mother nature made him, lol.  I'm hoping by the time he is old enough for it to be gross, he will have learned a thing or two, lol. 

I used my MFT Die-namic traditional tags staxDie-namic tool charms, Die-namic Circle Stax, and some MME paper Gnome Sweet Gnome.  It was nice to get away from the Valentines paper, lol.  I love it, but I was using it an awful lot, lol.  The nice part about having Valentines paper is you can use it all year around and for a lot of different occasion's.  Check out the paper Laura has in her store, along with all the die-namics she has been collecting.  You are going to flip when you see the New Items section!  She has been a busy bee adding things non-stop.  Really great things!  Squeal!!! 

I used this weeks sketch from MFT's weekly sketch Challenge.  So perfect for a tag on a card.  Laura wants me to give a 101 on where to find a great sketch.  Most of the places I go to look for a great sketch are listed on my blog side bar at the bottom, lol.  I just pick and choose and get really excited when I can actually enter the challenges on time.  lol.   I also look to see where our Challengers go and sometimes I can find a really fabulous sketch on their entrees and I write that down for future reference or add it to my sidebar so when I am looking for a sketch, I can find it easily.   Now I ask you, where do you find your sketches?

So I have to tell you, I searched high and low for those little vintage tags that I bought from S.U. a while back, and I could not find them anywhere!  lol.   I did rediscover some other buried treasure while I was hunting them down, and then it dawned on me, make my own.  I have the dies, so I did. lol.  I added two little hammers that I cut out with the Designer paper and then cut out again with some mirror paper I have in my stash and then just glued it down over the top.  I also had those brads in my stash and I thankfully those were one of the things I came across during my mad search, lol. 

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!!!

Love it, Love it, Love it! Tell me I'm old, but every time I see a "crack", I am reminded of an episode of Designing Women (from probably 20 years ago) where their handyman bent over and exposed his crack. I'm still laughing!

Your coloring, sketch, papers and embellishments REALLY make this image stand out. BRAVO!

Ha.......Oh no, I've seen more of those in real life than I care to see...girls included.

Fun card and a great masculine one. I really like the hammer idea.

We should all make a bunch of these to have on hand and when we see this, hand them a card that says 'I see'. Wonder what the response would be. Probably not good.
