Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything! Life in Left Field is always changing, always real, always ...interesting.

Finish Line

Today I'm playing with my new stamp sets from Bombshell Stamps. They sure are nifty-neato!!! Over at the Bombshell Blog, it's time for the monthly sketch challenge. I actually got my project done...on time. YAY me! So, here is this month's sketch-a-reeno designed by our lovely DT Cap'n, Kathi.
Now's the time for y'all to join in the fun and submit an entry into our sketch challenge for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Bombshell Stamps! WOO HOO!!! You have until the end of the month to enter...so GO FOR IT!!!

Here is my little entry. It's a very "guy" card. I don't do "guy" cards that often. I think it's because girl cards are more...fun. It's kinda like kids' clothes. Girl clothes are way C-U-T-E! Boys' clothes are...meh...boring. This is sorta how I feel about "guy" cards. But ya know what? I like the way this one turned out. It still has some pizzazz without feeling feminine. There are a WHOLE lot of layers on this card. Of course there are...this is Torrey here. I don't do "flat". I used foam tape in between each layer so, yeah....it's lumpy.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
all stamps - Bombshell Stamps (Vintage Raceway, Speed Shop)
Cuttlebug embossing folder - Provo Craft (Mesh Texture)
Nestability dies - Spellbinders (inverted scalloped squares)
Patterned paper - Basic Grey, Little Yellow Bicycle
