Happy Birthday

Oh happy day!  I finally made it into my craft studio for a little R&R.  It's been a whirlwind of activity around my house what with getting ready for my son to come home from overseas on July 2nd and for friends to visit for several days over the July 4th weekend.  I'm so excited!  Only problem is, I'm the only whirlwind who's getting things done.  Can I just say I am tired!  But, it's a happy tired.  :-)

Now that I'm making more masculine cards, I'm always in need of another one.  The theme from The Paper Players Challenge and the colors from the Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge melded well together and here is the card that came out of combining these two great challenges.


Stamp Sets:  Crazy about You (sentiment), Traveler, You've Got This; Inks:  Early Espresso, Pool Party, Soft Suede; Card Stock:  Early Espresso, Pool Party, Very Vanilla; Accessories & Tools:  Boho Chic Embossing Folder, Extra-Large Oval Punch, Linen Thread, 1/8" Silver Brads, SNAIL Adhesive, Glue Dots, Stampin' Trimmer, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine

The colors I used is from the Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge.
