Preview Day Three with Lil Tom Boyz Pinkette August



Welcome to day three of Tickled Pink Stamps' Lil Tom Boyz Pinkette previews... Today we have sweet August for you! She is too busy wood-working to be worried about playing house! Look at the pencil tucked into her hair? Isn't she just darling? As you can tell, I do have a particular fondness for this Pinkette. Maybe it's because her name is my birth month. Or perhaps she reminds me of my younger self. And though I'm not skilled with hammer, nail or saw, I do use tools of a different sort to create when I'm crafting.

You will want to make sure to get over to the TPS blog to check out all the other preview creations from the amazing Pink and Pinkette ladies! As always, Kellie has a fabulous giveaway and all you have to do it leave a comment over there to be eligible.

For my card, I started with SSSC120 from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge as my base design. I've had the paper in my stash for a while now and knew it was perfect. It was interesting trying to create a "pretty" card that wasn't overly "girlie". The measuring tape ribbon I snagged from one of the chain craft stores that I frequent (there are 3 in my area, all of which I can hit on the way from work to home. Dangerous! lol). Somewhere along the way I decided that real sandpaper would be a fantastic idea so I used my Classic Circle Nesties to cut them from a Tim Holtz refill for his sanding block. A few flowers, a little bit of lace and a touch of bling later and I was done.

As always, thanks for looking! I hope you will leave a comment so I know you have visited. I do love and appreciate each and every one of them! I hope you enjoy your day.... It's going to be a hot one here with temperatures in the 90s (and they are saying it could reach 100 tomorrow! Not typical for New England in June.). Some people like this weather, but I'll be enjoying the AC, thank you! :) Until next time... Happy crafting!

Another cutie, Regan, think I'll be needing to buy some of these when they are released, too cute. You've done a great job again with this one, love the measuring tape and sand paper, so clever!

OMG love it Regan! Love the ruler for the "tomboy" aspect but then the roses to soften it! Perfect contrast!
