Stamp Simply #87 - For The Guys

Can you believe it's Friday again already!!!! Time for another STAMP SIMPLY challenge over on Sharon Johnson's blog. Today Sharon has given us a GUY challenge ... here it is in her words:

FOR THE GUYS - When I first started stamping I did a ton of masculine cards, living in a houseful of guys, but I slowly got away from it and now don’t do nearly enough of them. Fathers’ day is still a month away, but we have all sorts of occasions to give those guys in our lives cards — so make a card for one of those guys in your life, but there is one more stipulation — lets make sure our cards include either string, rope, cording or knots of some sort – which is what I used to include on guy cards all the time when I did them years ago. So pull out those *rugged ribbons* - LOL — and let’s create for those guys in our lives!!!

When I need a GUY card, I automatically reach for my STAMPSCAPES images. Being raised in the country, most of the guys in my life have been more into hunting and fishing vs sports. With my father and my FIL both passed on, I made a generic guy card today. Hope you like it and don't forget to stop by Sharon's blog to see her awesome creation and the inspirational cards from her design team.
Card details:
Stamps: Stampscapes
Paper: 2-sided hunter/ivory cs, tempting turquoise, baja breeze, river rock, white
Ink: Versafine black
Accessories: detail clear ep, SU watercolor pencils, blender pen, Michael's waxed cording
Thanks so much for stopping by today ... now I really must get outside and get my yard work done before the heat of the day catches up to me! Have a great day!!
