FInally posting again!

Sorry it has been so long, but I have been away a lot lately, and it is definitely time to start catching up on cards!

Here is one I made for my nephew's birthday this weekend, and he just turned 12.  He just started really getting into skateboarding a few months ago, so I scoured the internet for skating images to use in MTC, because I was not really into buying the Lite cart for one or two images!  I found this as a clip art in a Google search, and it was perfect!  I figured a silhouette would be good for this, and the mat is a piece from the Making Memories "Just Chillin" stack.  The title is from a free TTF and clip art also, and I just used the shaodw layer in MTC to create the effect - easy! 

Finally, I used the SU Sanded background stamp to give it a sort of grunge look on the inside mat, added a couple of SU buttons on the front, then wrote in it, and it was done!  Thanks for visiting today!


I appreciate your comments, so THANK YOU!!
