A Card for Someone Special

for my Kaboodle Doodles post, please click here.

This week at Paper Cupcakes, we are being asked to create a card for someone special. well gosh, I have a lot of someone specials in my life, so it was hard to decide for whom to make a card. but as soon as I saw this cutey snake on a skateboard, I knew Mick was getting a card in the mail! :) in fact, he received it at school over the weekend and texted how much he loved the card - most especially the snake!

I wanted to give this card an edge, so I pulled out papers from the Basic Grey Obscure collection. these are some funky-do papers! and absolutely perfect for this card! Mick is really into his longboard and takes it with him all over campus. he and his girlfriend had it specially designed this summer, so he's very proud of it. I was tickled when I found this tag in Ryan's room because the pipeline is a skating term. onto the card it went! Mick caught onto that right away..... the zipper is another one of my repurpsed finds..... yep, I pretty much save everything, but they look so cool on these guy cards! the star is punched from cardboard and then inked with white craft. little dots of stickles accent the snake. I painted in the sidewalk to give the fella something to skate on, just like Mick on campus.
