happy Charisma day to yoooouuuuu, mister! :)

hiya! what's up?
hope the week's going well for everyone - mine is FLYING by, and i am looking forward to a nice long weekend! the next couple of days, however, are going to be extremely busy at work, so i may need that extra day just to recover... whatever shall i do on my day off? should i tell my darling hubbin that i even HAVE the day off? ;)

well... given that it's late late on a Wednesday night, early early on a Thursday morning, that can only mean one thing! it's time for a new CHARISMA CHALLENGE!

this theme, one with which i find myself struggling more often than not, was actually fun for me this week, because i have some nifty new papers that seem to work brilliantly!

this week, it's FOR THE BOYS!

right. so. something you could give to a fella, right? RIGHT! like this:

yeah - have you seen the BasicGrey Life of the Party line? it's utterly PERFECT for boy cards - girl cards too, but wonderful primary, bold colours, stars (fave!), stripes and plaids and woodgrains. it's seriously fabulous, and i may be in love. AGAIN. 'cuz i think i may also be head over heels for Hello, Luscious, and i'm itching to get my hands on the Sweet Threads yummies, too. needless to say, i adore me some BasicGrey.

so anyway, yeah. i used BG papers, alphas, and PETALS (fabric - how HOT is that?!), a little gel pen action on the Petal, some cheapie foam glittery stars and some Bazzill cardstock to make everything POP. and now i have the itch to make MORE boy cards, which is totally strange for me.

BUT! you wanna get in on the challenge action at Charisma, dontcha? well, you definitely should! CLICK HERE to get to the challenge blog, and please feel free to drool all over the place at our Charisma Galz' amazing creations. the ideas just seem to flow endlessly from these ladies, and i'm absolutely honoured to be on the team with them!

wanna know what you could WIN?!

and now, back to your regularly scheduled programming. go make something, or something. 'kay? :)
