Geek Guy Hits the Books-Electronic Style

I can't believe it...I woke up this morning finally wanting to head to my stamp room and create something. I haven't been feeling crafty at all lately and I was happy to have that feeling back. To make sure I didn't get stumped along the way and loose my mojo I decided to play in a couple of challenges.

The layout for this card is SC294 from Splitcoast and the theme is this week's MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge...Hitting the Books. I know my geek guy doesn't have a book in his hands but seriously, in this day and age is it even possible to hit the books without including a computer in the list of necessities? Maybe in kindergarten, maybe...but that's about it. Even I don't read paper books anymore since I got my Kindle last year, and now I can read on my computer and iPhone too! Ok, wait a second...I'm starting to wonder who the real geek is in this equation! LOL!!!

My hubby's always on his computer...he'll finish with his work laptop then pick up his personal laptop for "fun" surfing, as he calls it, so when I saw Who's That Geek Guy? from MFT stamps I knew it was the perfect set for him. The image is mostly paper pieced with patterns from Cosmo Cricket's The Boyfriend 6x6 mini deck and I coloured a little of it with copics. I always find it difficult to incorporate accessories into guy cards so I stuck with a black button and some grey Divine Twine. None of the sentiments were what I was looking for so I decided to leave it blank...now I can use it for just about anything.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Aha...perfectly paper pieced and colored too. Just love that metal looking paper in the background. Is that an embossing folder?
