Papercraft Planet / Bombshell Stamps Challenge

OK, we have a really fun challenge for you today over at Papercraft Planet -- it's an inspiration challenge, sponsored by Bombshell Stamps. To play along, simply pick something that you think is "the bomb" and make something!

Post your project in the Paper Craft Planet photo gallery, and use the tag "PCPBOMB". (Here is a tutorial on adding pictures to the gallery, if you need it.) Shannon, at Bombshell Stamps has generously offered TWO stamps sets as a prize -- Pinstriping and Speed Shop.

For my card I made this fun Birthday card for my best guy friend, Mark, who's birthday is coming up next month (I'm pretty sure Mark doesn't read this blog, so I think I'm safe!!). Basically Mark is "the bomb"!! We've been friends for YEARS and he's one of the things I miss most about Oklahoma! We've had some crazy fun times together - from our days working together for Health South in OKC to winning front row Aerosmith tickets on the radio (long story, but Mark had to pretend to be Joel and play the "Bedlam Boob" game live on the radio for that one...let's just say that's the one and ONLY time Joel ever thanked a dude for pretending to feel up his girlfriend in front of thousands of people!!! LOL) to teaching Mark to surf his first trip to Maui just a few months after I moved here. Basically, he's the best guy friend a girl could ask for!! Here's Mark (or as Dean calls him "Uncle Marker") at the Ulupalakua General Store on his last trip out to Maui in January:
And here's his birthday card using Retro Cowgirls. I colored the cowgirl with my Prismacolor pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits.
