Tickled Pink Challenge #12 - One for the Lads



All the men in my immediate family are computer guys. My dad and my two brothers are what I like to call technologically gifted (as opposed to technologically challenged, which is what I am! lol). They either indulge in it as a hobby, do it for a living, or are about to graduate from college with a degree in it. So that is why I used Lil Lad Eric for Challenge #12 - One for the Lads over at Tickled Pink Stamps. This will most likely be a birthday card for one of my brothers. I used sketch #211 from Card Positioning Systems to get me started. Designer paper from the Generation Tech stack by DCWV and some keys pried off an old keyboard help give my card the geeky chic look I was going for.

I also participated in the corner bookmark challenge that Tickled Pink Stamps owner, Kellie, threw out on her facebook group. I used the tutorial found on splitcoaststampers to create a page saver any vampire fiction lover would enjoy! Lil Lad Lestat was chosen to adorn my project. He technically also qualifies for the One for the Lads challenge too, but it was time for the nerds to have the spotlight today! lol Mr. Dark, Brooding, and Mysterious will just have to settle for runner up this time! lol


I have two more cards to complete tonight so I'll try to edit the post later with the card supplies used. Be sure to check back to see what else I'm up to...

Hi Regan,
Sorry Im late on commenting on your post. As I said it in the TPS Group, I just love, love, love these projects!! And they are both so different. One is very bright and the other one is gloomy.
And thank you for commenting on my Christmas post. I didnt intend to create Lil Eric for both posts but because I ran out of time (story of my life, lol) I just thought Id go for it. Like you, I was down to the wire. And I had to do it on my mobile phone. lol.
