If you're like me, you struggle making masculine cards. Why is that? Today's card was no exception. Thank goodness I have the Sense of Time stamp set to help me out. It is absolutely perfect for making masculine card.
Even though I've been in a stamping rut, I am pretty pleased with the outcome of this card. I decided to take out my distressing tool and rough up the edges a bit. Of course I couldn't just stop there. I had to sponge the edges a bit to give them a more weathered look. You may be wondering what those funky little circle button things are doing at the bottom. Well, the simple truth is that I forgot to put the brads on my patterned paper before adhering it to the card base. Oops! (There are no mistakes in stamping, right? )
I will be sending this to a retired co-worker of mine who is battling cancer. My friend, Teresa, and I have been sending him cards just to let him know that he's never far from the thoughts and prayers of his old co-workers. He has called to thank us for all the cards and well wishes we've sent. It truly makes my heart happy to know that a simple card brightens his day a little. I highly recommend you make a card and send it to someone. You'll never truly know how much it means to them : )
Thanks for peeking in on me today! School starts tomorrow and I'll be sending my "baby" off to his freshman year of high school. I can't believe how time has flown.
