Being a Rebel with Operation Write Home - Blue and Gray

Today (or yesterday now) is National Scrapbooking Day and I am choosing to celebrate it in a very rebellious way...I am making cards for our troops with Operation Write Home "Be A Rebel" Virtual Card Making Party.

Challenge #8 - Use Blue and Grey by Allison G. in TX

Blue and grey...what a great theme to go with our VCMP  Rebel theme!  But grey...really?!?  I had to chuckle because I was pretty sure I didn't even have any grey card stock, and I was right. I was looking around my craft area wondering what in the world I would do for this image, colored by my BFF Lucy, and what do you know?  It has both blue and grey in it!  Eureka!

The patterened paper I picked up over a year ago at either JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby specifically to use with this digi but I was always too afraid to try coloring him.  Lucy to the rescue!  She loves to watercolor and I love to let her!  LOL  This adorable little guy is from Bugaboo Stamps but unfortunately has be retired.  It is difficult to tell but I attached the focal piece with dimensional mounting tape to give it even more dimension.  The silver eyelets in the corners were thrilled to see the light of day and do a good job of  pulling it all together.


  1. What a great card, Lisa! I had no idea when I came up with this challenge that it would be so difficult. I don't really buy gray paper, but I have some left from a Bazzill paper pack from eons ago. LOL

  2. Aaaah just so cute, love the little cowboy! Fab card Lisa.

  3. What an adorable card! Your so lucky to have such a talented BFF that can watercolor so well!

    1. Anytime! You know you can count on me to ride in, make the tough decision, solve the problem, find the solution, work it out, save the day, and do whatever you need. After all, it's all about you right?

    2. Sure you do.....! ME!
