Man Card Swap!

Attack Of The Caffeine Crash stamp and Stampin Up paper. I colored this image with Copics. I sold out of this stamp FAST, so I will be adding more to my store later this week. It is just adorable! I think we can all relate to this image of being overworked and over caffeinated (: I do have a few Gruffies left if you want to take a look. They are really cute and popular. 
I made this tie card using Lime Rickey paper from Basic Grey. I used the 6x6 size pad to make this man tie. I made both of these cards for our local SCS shoebox swap last Saturday. The theme was male cards. This is usually not a strong area for me, so our swap was very helpful for me (: Everyone brought amazing cards to make and like always we had a BLAST. The tie is easily found if you Google it. If I can do it so can you (: 
Let me know what you think!!!!

I love that card and the tie! I'm weak in the man card dept. Hubby says even when I think I'm making a man card it's still kind of a girl card! LOL
