Comb-overs, Stubble and Recliners....Ahhhhh the Holidays!

Hi everybody!

It's time once again for the Dueling Darlings to create! Our challenge this month is very masculine. The Dazzlers hostess, Darlene, sent us a great "man's" card kit.

Here's what I made with it:

worn out, very loved recliners, stains on clothes, facial stubble, comb-overs and football......
Yep, I know it's the Holidays! LOL
My father in law sports a nice come-over but usually wears a hat. But, during the holidays, no hat, we get to see it in all it's glory.
My Dad's favorite place in the house is his worn out recliner with a bag of lay's potato chips beside him. After eating a huge Thanksgiving meal, he's usually asleep, *giggle*
My husband loves to let the facial hair grow, usually on the weekends while watching lots and lots of football.
So, I made my image a combination of all the guys in my life. LOL

Thanks Darlene for a cute kit! I can't wait to see what my Sistah' Dazzlers made and my friend/enemies (hee hee), the Divas made.

Be sure to check out their blogs listed in my left sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time...
Blessings...

Oh my goodness...outstanding. Way to go adding the whiskers and the stains on the clothes. I never would have thought of that. Great details.

Hi Melina!

I'm really late getting to all the blogs to view the DDD's Nov. cards. But this card of yours is so worth the time! I LOVE the way you colored this image giving your guy hair, whiskers and stained clothes...Too funny! Love the placement of papers and embellishments as well as the perfect sentiment inside! What a fun tribute to the guys in your life!!!
