Team Canada

Okay, I think I just rocked the guy card. A hard thing to do no less. The image is from Paperworks Co. - Zack, the Hockey Player. Every time I use this stamp, I think of my brother, which I think helps to keep these cards really grounded. He's a major hockey buff and hates anything remotely girly. Believe me, he'd let me know. I particularly love the sentiment, I found it on a list of hockey quotes. It fits his ego - what can I say... he black circle the sentiment is mounted on reminds me of a hockey puck, which just makes this card all the better.

The layout itself is from SCS303 challenge. Normally I wouldn't have added the twine - trying to keep this manly and all, but I am trying to finish off the last of my Hope You Can Cling To challenges. I was struggling with the one for twine until I found this is in the back of my stash. I think it was originally on a Starbucks mug I received for Christmas years ago.

Zac is coloured with Copics, I added the Canada to his helmet and the maple leaf. The maple leaf came from They have great crafts for kids and printables. I just shrunk the printables down in Word and then cut them out to fit. Hint: Colour the image first and then cut - this would have been soooo much easier. I always seem to do things the hard way!

The DP is from Cosmo Cricket, their Mitten Weather collection. Hope you enjoy him as much as I did making him.
