Zero to 60 in....

I lassoed, hog-tied and duct tapped it, but somehow the weekend eluded me and here we are again at Monday!  If not for two things, I'd still be drooling on my pillow.  The smell of coffee and the anticipation of kicking off another linky party at Make It Monday, bolted me right out of bed!
Thanks so much for the amazing support of everyone who participated in last weeks party, I had the best time seeing all of your entries.

So, what goes 0 to 60 in stupid-seconds?  Hummingbirds! What used to be a peaceful setting for watching nature in our backyard has turned into a full scale gang land war.  I'd seen a few hummingbirds flying by on a regular basis and thought, "Hey, let's hang a feeder right here next to the patio table, it'll be great!" WRONG!!  I swear it's like survival of the fittest out there.  I'm thinking of having a body suit of kevlar made so I can sit and drink a cup of coffee. NOT in a red cup either, another stupid move.  I don't know how you all who have more than one feeder do it!  Then again you probably don't hang them right in front of your faces either! LOL...ah well....

What else goes 0 to 60 in stupid-seconds?   Pretty much anything a man can get ahold of...
 Here is my step card using the images Stella's Tire/Testicles and Guy Car.
Complete with a wood shingled man cave garage and assorted banter on signs. 

Here is my...
PICK OF THE WEEK!
Dr. Sonia with her Altered Clock

First off, she refers to herself as a "novice" in quilling, but would you look at this! I love that she re-purposed a clock and made such a beautiful scenery! All the little leaves on that tree, she hand embossed the veins as well.  Incredible attention to detail and what amazing talent. She has more detailed pictures on her blog here if you'd like to check it out closer up!
 
Thank you so much for every single awesome comment that was left for me. I had the best laughs and smiles. 
Hugs to you all and happy stamping...
Lisa xx
 
 But don't stop here, there's tons more inspiration from my teamies over at
and our gracious sponsor who is offering the prize of 7 single digis...WOW!

Margaret said...

OH Wow!! You really should give us a bit of warning...almost had drink on my monitor... LOVE this wonderfully guy inspired card! I'm thinking a new vehicle on the home front may have provided some inspiration... I need to remember Stella's man quote for my DD when she starts dating and driving! The garage is fantastic and once again in awe of all of the little details you put into your creations!!
Gorgeous POTW and in spite of making a note for myself, I forgot your very special day...Hope it was a wonderful one!!

Sandy said...

That's not a card, it a work of ART. Love those shingles on the man cave garage, Great combination of images and words, LOL.
I wonder if you can find a Kevlar body suit on e-bay?
