Life is About Creating Yourself!


I have a very different card to share today....well, different compared to what I usually make! My pal, Andrea gave me me very first Unity stamps and this is the first one I've played with!

There was a coop student working with us at the library for a few months, named Greg....*HI GREG*....and he was done his term, so I made him a card and gave it to him on his last day. It was a bit of a challenge, as I'm great with the girlie, frilly stuff but not so good with the guy stuff. Anyhoo, I thought this sentiment stamp was inspiring, so I made that the focal point of the card.

The card base is a Chocolate Chip square and I used some Basic Grey dp and distressed all around it with ink. I then added a bit of colour with the blue ric rack and attached some buttons with brown linen thread.

Well, he must have really like it because he gave me a big hug. I love it when my cards get that reaction! So the distressed, scrappy, manly looking cards are not really my thing, but I think it turned out okay.

It was a lovely long weekend for me and we spent the day yesterday shopping in the US. I picked up a few good bargains, a couple of books and some stampin' supplies. Yay. Now I'm back to work...boo.

Have a super inky day!!

Your absolutely right. Masculine cards are sometimes a little harder to create. You have done a great job with this one. It is so nice that you took the time to make him a card. Great job.
