I Brake for Stamps Challenge

I'm super excited today to tell you about a fantastic challenge hosted at Papercraft Planet and sponsored by I Brake for Stamps. It's a sketch challenge, so to play along simply create a card or other project using this sketch:

Post your project in the Paper Craft Planet photo gallery, and use the tag "PCPIBFS" -- all caps, please. (Here is a tutorial on adding pictures to the gallery, if you need it.) I Brake For Stamps has generously offered a $30 gift certificate to one of our lucky challenge players. But wait, there's more!! (channeling Billy Mayes :) -- if you place an order at I Brake for Stamps between now and Saturday, use the code "PCPlanet" and you'll save 15%!!!!! Here is my card:

The PCP Super Novas and I all used the Humorous Seniors for our cards. I (fittingly I think) chose to use Joe Surfer, coloring him with my Copic Markers and pairing him with some printed digi papers from the Jen & Dean kit by Libby Weifenbach (Sweet Shoppe Designs). My coloring isn't so great (it never is) and I think that instead of looking like shading as I'd intended in the crotch area of poor Joe, it looks more like he might be suffering from some incontinence! {sigh}. Oh well. I, of course, am not old (in fact, my 5th Annual 29th Birthday Celebration was just a few weeks ago....) so I can't give this card to anyone as the sentiment says something about "we" (LOL), but I plan to hand it over to my Mom tomorrow morning and I'm sure she'll get a HUGE kick out of giving it to one of her surfing buddies at Makena (who really IS old and probably looks a lot like Joe, but with a better tan and MUCH more leathery skin!!)

Check out what the other Super Novas came up with:

LOL -- this is hilarious! Unfortunately, I strongly suspect that I would look similar to this dude if I tried to surf!

This is just way too cute, Jen! LOVE that digi paper you used! I hope your Mom finds good use for the card!
