Why men shouldn’t write advice columns…

I found this funny article online when I was searching for a printed background for our new challenge that started today over at The Sisterhood of Crafters. The theme chosen by our “sistah” Vickie is… yes “Printed Page background” and I thought, well if I have to print a page, why not print something nice to read. So I first started searching for love poems by Shakespeare that I could decorate with some stamped flowers, but I couldn’t find any with a suitable background for what I had in mine. So I went the other way and looked for funny news articles.

I don’t really know the origin of this article but I found it so funny that I had to use it for my card. Probably because it hits the nail on the head… that men pay attention to different things in general… and they switch off after the 1st few sentences. Mine does anyway! LoL!

By chance, I also found another printed page that had cars on it and used that as a background. I crumpled and tore both, splattered some ink on them and adhered them to my white card base. I just happened to have a monster from Gerda Steiner “Monster Fun”, which I thought very appropriate for the card! I coloured it with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers, fussy cut it and adhered it to the card. The word “Beast”also comes from the same set and I stamped it with red Versafine ink and coloured it in with my Zigs.

Well I hope you enjoyed my post and it made you smile. Do pop over to The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge blog to see what other printed backgrounds my “sistahs” have created to inspire you to create and link up with us. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Have a great day!
