Clean & Simple Masculine Card


 Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Those of you getting hit by these winter storms please be safe out there!  Spring will be here before you know it ... so, hang in there!

 Today I have a quick card to share that I hope you'll like.  I spotted the CAS (clean & simple) challenge over on the Cardz 4 Guys Challenge Blog so I immediately turned to my Stampscape stamps.  One stamp a little coloring and Viola!

 Stampscapes - Pines & Rocks


 I decided to do a little water coloring with my new Derwent Inktense pencils & a fine artist brush.

Inktense Pencil Set - Set of 12

  Masculine cards can be sometimes difficult to create but today's card came together in about 10 minutes.  I've used Forest Green cardstock for my card base to help pull the scene together.

 It's still snowing here so we'll probably still get a few more inches but then I need to quick having fun here in the crafting cave and get outside, fire up the snow blower and get the driveway cleared before the next snow storm due on Thursday.  Hubby buys me the best & easiest to run equipment ... no shoveling for this old lady!  LOL

 Thanks so much for stopping by ... have a great week!

As always . . .
