Thor Superhero - CK #91

Hi my friends from a very wet logged H Town!  In case you haven't heard or seen us on TV news, we had a record 10+ inches of torrential rains on Monday night. Pretty scary night. Luckily, my house is up on a slope so no water got in. I did lose power for 4 hours. We have had rain off and on, more on than off, since December. The most we've had in years.  In fact we are almost to our year mark and it's not even June yet. Then our office was without power on Tuesday morning so we were closed. An extra day off was nice. I was afraid that things were going to be bad this morning because I woke up to more thunderstorms but this one passed over us pretty quickly and I was able to get to the office even a little late.

The extra time off gave me some extra time for stamping. So let's get to my Creative Knockouts card for this week.  In case you wonder why I chose this image to use,  one of my sons-in-law has a birthday in June and it so happens that his name is Thor, so I thought this would be a great card for his birthday.  Hmmm. . must say, it really doesn't look like him, but I bet he'll like it. Besides that, his family are addicted to all those Marvel theme movies.

 Materials Used:
  • Image - Bugaboo - Thor Superhero
  • Sentiment - Computer Generated
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Old Olive; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Basic Gray - Archaic
  • Accessories - Stampin Up Label Punch; Die (?); Twine from my stash
  • Copic Markers - E34, E37, E42, E44, E47; N0, N1, N2; R27, R37, R59; T3, T5, T7; Y15, Y26, Y32

Our theme this time is Tic Tac Toe.  Use the chart below to determine how you will make your card. I used a Digi Stamp, Sentiment, and Twine for my card.

I hope you'll stop over at Creative Knockouts and see what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you and then you can get inky and join in the fun. You could be our winner or one of our Top 3.  See you there!
