Simple Retro Father’s Day

A MAD MEN inspired RETRO Father’s Day image and card for our ACN ‘For the men’ challenge.  I kept it fun and simple with retro circles in orange, green and brown accents.  I designed the background and added the RETRO MAN image into a circle using My Memories Software. Challenges: That Craft Place (makes for men)  

Call Me Maybe? Digital Greeting Card

I had fun making this retro style CAS card using my RETRO PHONE digital image available at CAN YOU DIGI IT?!  This  CARD is also available in my ACN ETSY shop.    I colored the image with my digital brushes in Corel and made the card using MY MEMORIES SOFTWARE.  MMS is an amazing software; affordable, easy to use and available worldwide!! I am using it now for all my digital cardmaking and scrapping! Don’t forget to join in the A Creative Need “FOR THE MEN” Challenge!  You could win 3 digital images!  Come and play. Have a creative day!  Smiles, Deena

Corrinne has made this fun masculine card to share with us and inspire you to join us in the “FOR THE MEN” ACN challenge this month!   I love how she used natural elements (the rocks and the burlap) to give this a rugged outdoors look!  And the HIKING MAN is climbing the rocks…great isn’t it!?  Thanks Corrinne!
