Feeling Blue?

Not blue in sad but blue in COPICS! That's the challenge at Copic Creations! I love their challenges and always want to play along but nearly always miss out. NOT THIS TIME! It may be the LAST day but I'm on it. LOL I used Laid Back Dude which is part of a set with Fashionista at Sugar Nellie which I used yesterday. Did you know Simply Sassy makes the cutest dudes as well? I think we're all obsessed with the sassy girls but these sassy guys are just as cute and fun to color! I didn't color him ALL in blue but used my favorite (ie. only) combo for jeans and gave him a nice BG scarf. I just adore his little hint of a smile and in FACT, he seriously reminds me of my hubby in high school. He used to wear hats like that and just OOOOze the mysterious sexy that finally won me over as he walked away looking back over his shoulder like that *giggle* I kept the layout simple and the embellies to a minimum - it is a guys card. The star paper is from my stash but I *think* it's Minds Eye? The news print is definately October Afternoon.

mwahahahaaa...whenever I see that image now I'll think "sexually mysterious" and Carisa's beloved hubby.
I don't think I'll ever colour him up. That'd be like an invasion of privacy or smth...
