I have been stamping and scrapbooking for the past 10 years. It is my favorite hobby and I sure do miss it when life gets way too busy. I have 3 amazing children, and a wonderful, supportive husband.

Sunday Already!

Good Evening Everyone!! Wow, a busy weekend and didn't get too much time to stamp.. Last night I helped my friend Angie do her brother in-law's wedding invitations. We were making them for 6 hours straight. Can you believe we got 200 out of 300 done?? Woohoo!! for 6 hours that isn't bad at all. So I finally got a chance to stamp tonight. I am going to try to do one more card before it gets too late. I just have to watch Army Wives, I am hooked!! HAHA!! Well everyone getting to my card... I decided to do a Father's Day Card. My good friend Pat over at SCS sent me a wonderful "MAN KIT" I told her in previous conversations, I didn't have many manly things and tend to avoid masculine she sent me a whole bunch of wonderful images, hardware, ribbon, and some manly goodies. I just LOVED everything and it totally got me in a masculine mood. Hope you like this and thanks for visiting me today!!!
Here's the recipe
Image given to me - I colored image with copics, the wheels and ground were colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, The sky was sponged with bashful blue ink from SU, and the bottom of the jeep I used silver bells I love how it shines, can't tell too much from this pic.
Setiment is from Darcie's Stamps stamped in Momento Black Ink
SU Bashful Blue Cardstock
SU Basic Black Cardstock
SU Real Red Cardstock
SU Top Note
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Swiss Dots
Brads given to me aren't they cool???
Misc. Buttons and string
Image, Top Note popped up with 3-D stickers
