Mr Cardmaker is Having a Sneaky Peeky Moment

Ok, so here's the thing.  I was contacted by Lori McAree at GinaK Designs this week, and she asked me to host the Free for all Friday challenge FOR THIS FRIDAY!!!  That's Friday the 13th.  Ooooooo.  Spooky.  Of course I said yes.  My Momma raised no dope. 

I am doing a masculine card challenge.  I have read that many people have problems doing a masculine card, so more practice will be a good thing.  I think strong shapes and lines, and a minimum of soft and shiny embellishments, as well as your color choices are key to making a card for a guy.

It took me all day to come up with a sample for this thing, and I actually came up with TWO.  I have a sneak peek  of one of them for you today.

It looks a little like this--

Oh yeah, there's all kinda stuff going on here.

I will be there early Friday morning.  The challenges are fun, and they give PRIZES, too! 
Hope to see some of your work there!

Thanks for stopping by!
All Best-


  1. Hi Richard! I came here from Lynn's blog - this sneak peek looks very interesting - how fun to host the GK free for all! I see we're almost neighbors - I live in Saugus and work in Boston... I scrolled down a few cards - love your colorful creations!

  2. I look forward to seeing more of this card, Richard. I'm one of those people who strive to do a better job with "guy" cards for the men in my life, so I can't wait to read your suggestions, and to see this project in it's full awesomeness!

  3. Ooooo spooooky! That sounds like a fun challenge Richard!! I really struggle with masculine I'm looking forward to seeing what you've got for us!!
