Fun with a cardboard box.

Had more time today to play, so I skimmed through the Feline Playful list of challenges for the week and found an interesting sketch at the Dude Time Doodles challenge blog.  My take on the sketch, which required the card be masculine:

I had this image of Eli from Mo's Digital Pencil already colored leaving me lots of time to pull out parts and play with the elements.  Here's the actual sketch:

I flipped it and found a piece of the Safari Chic Die Cuts with a View that reminded me of tire tracks.  A few scraps of punched cardstock and some alpha-numeric stamps for the top prize ribbon and voila - a great card to send in to Operation Write Home!  (Do kids play with cardboard boxes any more?)

And while I'm on OWH - they made it to the finals for the JoAnn's Craft for a Cause challenge.  Stop on over and vote!

Thanks for visiting!

What a great image! My boys always played with cardboard boxes when they were little. Normally they liked the box better than what came in it! Thanks for playing with us at Dude Time Doodles!!

This is such a cute image for a typical boy playing with his dog! Kids do still play with cardboard boxes as far as I know. Love the DP paper you paired with this image! Super fun card!
