An Ian Preview

Thank you all for your awesome advices yesterday! I know it will help so many people. Don't worry when I make it big, I'll give away laser printers here on the blog. Beat that Oprah! LOL!

Ok so this whole time Ian has just been sitting quietly and patiently while we rage on about Anya. LOL. Today I thought I'd shine a little light on him and show you all a new Ian Stamp in the works!



I based this design off of Ray. He used to be a little skater kid. Sadly he says he can barely balance himself on a skateboard now but... we will always have memories and photos. LOL.

We have a small but sweet lineup today! I didn't get a chance to scope out the gallery today. Pam sent in this cute Panda Friends card! Bejeweled!



And here is two cutie cards by Cheryl! Happy Chef and Anya from the Dress Up set.




Hmmm we haven't had a challenge in a while have we? Ok there will be a challenge/contest tomorrow! It is said and so it shall be done. lol. We'll make it a sweet prize too. Check in tomorrow!

Today's question is: You have a spectacular date tonight and there's nothing in your closet but these options. Which would you choose?

1. Gray sweatpants with stiletto heels
2. Yellow sparkly jumpsuit with a cowboy hat
3. Sexy red dress with gym shoes
4. Old xmas sweater and khaki shorts
5. Leopard leggings and gold jacket with shoulder pads

LMAO! I was laughing so hard making up these! Ok if I was on a hot date, I would have to go with #2. LOL! Cuz nothing says fun and crazy like a yellow sparkly jumpsuit and cowboy hat.

I am on pins and needles to read what the challenge will be.

As for the hot date...I guess I would go with:

4. Old xmas sweater and khaki shorts - figure the sweater will hide all the food I ate around Christmas!

Lindy Stamper said...

I would have to go w/ the Sexy Red Dress w/ tennis shoes. I think most people can pull that off. ;)

I love that little Ian, when will he be available?

Wendalyn said...

I cannot wait for little Skater Ian since my son has been skateboarding since he has been 6 and he is 12 now. I would have to go with Old xmas sweater and khaki shorts for the date... actually i would call and cancel if thats all i had to wear haha... When will Ian be released btw..

Jenn said...

Cute Ian stamp! And great cards today!
Hmm... I'd wear the Leopard leggings and gold jacket with shoulder pads - hey! the 80's are coming back - aren't they?! LOL!! I'd also have to tease up my hair and put it in a scrunchi! LOL!

Diana said...

I'm so going with 1. How comfortable to be in sweats and sexy in stilletos. pull the bottoms up to the calves wear a bra and it could almost be a Madonna outfit from the 80s.

Kim Dellow said...

Oh so cute, they are beautiful cards. Love your stamps, just discovered them through Clare and Bev.
So I think I would be in the yellow jump suit and a cowboy hat. I use to have a sparkly red 'santa' cowboy hat - I think that would make an impression :)

I am an 80s girl, so #5 all the way! Shoulder pads balance out big hips. ;) Still giggling over the other choices though...teehee!

Paula Laird said...

Love that Ian! I hope I get to play in the challenge, too! How exciting!
I'd go with sweat pants and stilletos. With the right top, I think that could be a pretty great outfit. :)

denean said...

I am totally in love with Skater Ian!!! My son also skateboards and when I was (much) younger I was a Skate Betty! :)

Kerry said...

Love the Ian, can't wait... great cards, they are so sweet!

I think I will go for the red sexy dress and the tennis shoes (and I will make sure to wear white sport sock with it, too) LOL, need to complete the outfit. :-D

Annabelle said...

Loved the Ian. I'm struggling between the xmas sweater and khaki shorts and the red dress with gym shoes, ultimately I would choose the red dress and hope the dress take his attention off the shoes, LOL.

Basement Stamper said...

Love the Ian, my son is in to skateboarding right now so he'd love me to make him a little mini me :-)

I'd go with #5, the leopard leggings and blazer with shoulder pads. That in itself cracks me up.

Sandra MacLean said...

Love that skateboard Ian! I'd have to say I'd play it safe and wear the sexy dress and tennis shoes....then I'd blame the shoes on some foot surgery! LOL Don't want to scare my hot date away now would I??

the whimsical butterfly said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE SK8er boy IAN!!! My son is drooling over here too!

Um, i literally laughed out loud reading your sexy date clothing choices...I'm gonna have to go w/ the yellow bling suit and cowgirl hat myself, too. Rock on!!!

Thanh said...

Oh geesh, IYB, you gave us such terrible choices!!! LOL Definitely a sexy red dress with my running shoes. Hey, atleast I look good up top! LOL

Looking fwd to the challenge tomorrow, I hope I can play with my limited Greeting Farm stamps.

Novell said...

Oh, I'm loving Skater Boi Ian!

As for the hot date: I'd cancel!

Becky Sorensen said...

Ohhh great options, I would be the one with the red dress and the tennie runners!! They would be old and tattered, ooops, hmm am I looking at my feet now!! I am the one who wore a dress and tennis shoes to both my nephews weddings a few years back - They were within a month of each other and since I wear black pants and tank tops 365 days a year they both went shopping with me, yep two boys who obviously love their aunt to find a dress and shoes- they finally gave up the shoe part!!! hugs,

Expressions of a Creative Mind said...

In my best Scottish sounding voice (don't ask me why) but imagine the dad from So I Married An Axe Murder...

Nothin Sez Sexy like the Red Dress with the tennis shoes. I mean all you gotta do is start singing a lil Rod Stewart. If you think I'm sexy and you want my body...LOL.

Sorry, had to do it.

Angie said...

hm, what to wear??? Well, I think I'd wear the grey sweats and stilleto heals. Cuz, the heals would hint at what's to come after the date, heeheehee, if my husband takes me on a great date that is! I can't wait for the challenge, I want to make my first TGF card!

CREATE=FUN said...

oh my the new Ian so so cute!!!

Lisa Graves said...

LOL! Too Funny! I guess I would go with the red dress and gym shoes. :-)
Cute stamps!

Elena said...

Love new stamp!!! Can't wait to read about new challenge!
My clothes choice will be #1- Gray sweatpants with stiletto heels!

Al said...

LOL! I'd be wearing grey sweats with heels!! (Um,I wear them every so often anyways):-O
I'm loving Sk8ter Ian!

ribenaruby said...

I will go with 4. old sweater and shorts and just hope the sweater is baggy enough to hide my bulges. Can't wait for this challenge, hoping to join in. Great samples showcasing, love them!

ScrapCrazyDiva said...

Lovin' the lil' sk8r boy IAN... That being said, I'd have to go with the yellow sparkly jumpsuit with the cowboy hat. And naturally, the hat would have to have some sort of bling as well;)

KanataNewf said...

Definitely the dress and the running shoes. Hopefully my date would be chasing me around and I would need them!

And Sk8R Ian is adorable!

Mz Kelz said...

I would totally rock the Yellow bling with the cowboy hat with my hair in 2 braids...bright and blingy with a touch of country girl.. As always, LOVE the new Ian.. maybe if I cant sleep tomorrow I will be able to get in on the challenge.. (still prayin for a teen anya pre-order soon.... and in rubba...)

Katie @ Paper Makeup said...

i love him!

Joyce said...

O*M*G!!! I about fell over when I saw skateboard Ian! Were you reading my mind? I JUST said to Novell the other day that I wished you would do a skateboard Ian and here he is! Can I have him now?

I don't think I could pull off any of those outfits but they are pretty funny to picture!

Cindy Haffner said...

Can't wait to see your challenge. I added you to my goggle reader.

I would pick Sexy red dress with gym shoes. I love high heels but they hurt the feet.

Love all the cards they all rock.

lose_yo_breath1 said...

Paper Kisses said...

I just love skater dude!!!!!

I'd have to go with #1....sweat pants & stiletto heels. Comfortably sexy!!!! That's hot!

angeljakki said...

Ian looks so cool. I would have to go with 4 something about comfortable clothes that makes me smile. I'm a khaki kind of girl x x

rachelsigmak said...

Oooo... Ian... so cute!

I would go with the Cowboy hat... Though I must admit, I have NEVER worn one before... and I think yellow makes me look like a banana... but why not!
