Good Morning - it's Tuesday Nov. 3rd, and it's my mom in-law's Birthday - Happy Birthday Mrs. Sluchinski! ( Yhap I still call her Mrs. Sluchinski - it's the polite thing to do - I know I have know her since 1984- he he - my son calls his her girlfriend's dad Mr. H - aint that cute??)
oh yha soooooooooooo what did I do today??? Well here we have it; another manly card - are you are sick of them yet? LOL - 2 more this week and then I will go back to making Christmas cards, okay???
What I originally started with was the Sanded background and the Backwoods stamp - of course as you know I am famous for changing my mind lol :)
I wanted to emboss branches on creamy caramel card stock. I used the branches from the bird in Stampin Up stamp set called "Friends 24-7!
that is until I stamped with the background stamp ha ha
okay okay - let's rethink this background stamp - the white branches are good - but here's what I did instead - no background stamp - Instead I used my trusty little sponge to make the sanded look on the background -
now I am going to use my sponge and two colours Chocolate chip and Close to cocoa
now this is what I was looking for - I stamped words from the "Stampin Up" Stamp set called " Peace Within" in Chocolate chip
I love my Crop-a-Dile - one of my fav. toys lol - I just love having my class play with it - so much fun he he :)
okay now I am almost done!
oh yha I almost forgot - somewhere in the middle of this gong show I decided that I would like to use the MoJo Monday sketch he he :)
and well here we have it!
not 100% the sketch - but close right? LOL
I have one more up close photo!
hope you enjoyed my take on another Manly card.
I am hoping that you have time drop me a comment?
I thank you all, so very much for your continued visits - I wish I had a better word then "Appreciate" cause I really do "appreciate" your comments (but as you all know I suck at good words lol)-
none the less - I really am GRATEFUL whouwee - how's that??
okay sorry enough gooffing
Thank you so very much and wishing all a Terrifik Tuesday
embossed hug from me to you
