Surf's Up for this Lifeguard

Hi everyone,
I'm back again as promised, this time for the new Challenge at

The theme this week is "Make it Manly"...a card for a man or boy

I've made a 4-Step card using a new digital image called Lifeguard on Duty and you can find it here.

Coloured with Copics...I really gave him a good tan using E11,13, 15, 18.
Paper pieced his swim trunks.
Sand crab and fish are very old QuicKutz dies
Letters - QuicKutz 
Starfish - Whimsy Dies
Sentiments:  Amy R Stamps - Beach Sentiments

Front View

As always, there is a lovely prize waiting for the winner of this challenge.

 We'd love it if you could join us this week and stop by the challenge if you can and see the fabulous creations made by the rest of the team.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Die Cuttin Divas - #167 For the Boys

Thanks again for stopping by,
Pat K xx

Tanned body, white teeth, toned muscles, you sure made him look his best with your coloring. It's a great image, though I'll admit he's not my type I would never have fallen for him even at a younger age, lol. This card oozes summer, love the little starfish used as a sun and the torn paper to make the sandy beach,
