Multiple Challenge Card - Riley says "Hello"

I started on this card early yesterday.  I don't know why it took me so long but here it is.. the unveiling..

Riley is brand new for me and I love him.  I only have a few images of him but I hope to get a lot more.  So as soon as I got him I had to use him.

These are the challenges i'm entering him in:

Fussy Fancy Challenge #1 - Something New
Stamp Something - New Somethings
Colour Creation - Challenge 35 Lemon & Lime
(I found the perfect paper for this challenge )
Lord have Mercy - Tuesday Sketch Challenge #54 (MTSC54)
& last but not at all least....
Cards For Men - Challenge #2
(Made for a boy or Man and needs to be new)

Here is a question for everyone....

QUESTION:  In challenges or not does everyone want to know everything used to make the card?  Does anyone care or you just want to see the cards and not really read every little thing used?

I see sites were some just post the card and that's it and others that list everything used.  Which one to go with?  HHHHEEEELLLLPPPPPP!!!!!  You guys are the experts out there.

So until I get the verdict I will give you the details.

The papers came (which again I thought was perfect for the limon/lime challenge since that is what they are.)  hahaha

Paper:  DCWV Summer Scrapbook kit in a stack.
Bottom Trim:  Cut with EK Success Lattice
Dotts Trim : Cuttlebug Emboss
Solid Cardstock: Bazzill

I gotta get going now and get started on oohhhhh SEVEN more cards by tomorrow.. hahah. .Nooo just kidding.. I know I crack myself up.

Big Mamma loves you all!

Your Riley card is so adorable, he is colored perfectly.

For you question... as soon as you post a card with no details, you will get asked what you used. So it is better to be safe and list it.

Great card, Big Mamma. Thanks for joining us over at cards for men and good luck with the challenge.

I agree with Juanita. If you don't say what you've used then people will only ask you. I tend to wnt to know what the image is and am not to fussed about the other details.

Ohhhh he is super cute!!
I always list what I have used, even if not for other people but as a reminder to myself if I want to create the card again at a later date! And with my bad memory, it really helps!

Hi Big Mamma, I love your Henry image definitely very suitable for any aged lad, my hubby loves tractors, and its so beautifully coloured as well.
Your question about putting all the details, I do, but then you dont have to read through them if you dont want, I would carry on explaining what you do and let your visitors make up their own mind. Sometimes I even use links that are left to find the things that have been used.
Thank you for joining us at Cards for Men challenge, and good luck. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxx

What a cute moose! I love the colors you used.
I agree with the comments: People love details and if they don't want them they won't read them!
Great job on the card. Thanks for sharing your talent with us at Fussy and Fancy!

Hi Mary, what person wouldn't want to receive this card colours are gorgeous.

I am also new to blog world and found you via the Cardology blog. I was reading how she made the house and eventually this led to your blog. I see the card first and then if there is something on it which takes my eye I read the comments to find out about it. Found out lots of interesting things from the comments.

I'm with the others Mary. Add the details. Quite often I see something on a card and want it. Having the deets up helps.
Love your Riley and the pretty papers you used. Your colouring is fantastic.
Thanks for joining in with us at Cards For Men. Good luck.
