Try Stamping on Tuesday and 1 more

Hello to all my blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

I just could not get a jump start today. When my honey is home sick my whole schedule gets out of whack lololo! We chat and have meals and watch movies (Sounds wonderful and trust me I'm not complaining one bit it is). But, there is a little part of me that likes my quiet time during the week so I can concentrate lolololo. Tomorrow is a new day and he is feeling much better. So that is a good thing!

Try Stamping on Tuesday http://trystampinontuesday.blogspot.com had a great sketch this week
See what I mean, loads of potential. This is what I came up with;
I love playing around with natural products in my cards and I have gotten a lot of use out of that old place mat. This is a very masculine card lots of texture and distressing my DH said it was "Very Manly" well that's a good thing I don't think any of my girlfriends would want to receive a Father's Day card lolol But, come to think of it I was a single parent for 17 years so I took on both rolls many times.....?
Here is a look at the inside;


I had an idea for a card in my head for a few days but, could not find a sketch challenge to match it so here is one of my original cards. Let me know what you think. Challenges are really good for guiding us along and for getting our MOJO going, that is why I do so many of them. Sometimes we just have to create and get out what is floating around in our heads (smile).
I practiced using the new SU Edgelits and the Adorning Accents on this card. I keep forgetting I have them?
Here is a look at the inside;
Well that is all for now. I hope you find sometime to play today!
Thanks for stopping by.
