The Guy Card

I know, I know. How terrible of me to just leave you here with nothing new to look at for over a week! Part of it is because I just love that last card so much that I wanted it sitting on the top of my blog. I can't wait for whatever stamp set Becky has up her sleeve to come out, cuz I'm just sure it will have the same feeling as that image. Love it! The other part is I'm just plain ol' lazy. I actually made this card before my wonderful house card, I just haven't gotten around to posting it until now. I needed another dreaded "man card", so I thought I'd sorta copy the card I made Shawn for his birthday. Only I wasn't in the mood to hand trim those rectangles & try to get them the exact same shape again. Dang OCD!  Sorta close just won't do!  But then there are things that drive me crazy about this final product (I won't bore you with my anal retentiveness) that I just had to leave & deal with cuz I was on a birthday deadline (sounds like a nice, official excuse, right?).  Anyway, I'm hoping to get some actual cards made this weekend so I have something to show you on a more frequent basis. Ha!  And if I can't think of anything wonderfully witty to say to go along with the cards, I'll just throw pretty pictures up to mesmerize you and maybe you won't notice!

Stamps: Limitless Labels, Polka Dot Basics II, Faux Ribbon, Simply Stationery & Birthday Basics (PTI), Ink: Versamark & Versafine Onyx Black, Paper: white, Ocean Tides (PTI), Certainly Celery & Baja Breeze (SU!), Accessories: square punch, 0.1 black pen (Sakura), handy dandy ruler

This is definitely a classic, simple guy card in the Mint style. I'm sure he loved it and was glad it didn't have swirls or flowers. Perfect!

Well, you KNOW I missed you, when I check almost every day. I went back to your old posts, tho. Love reading them. Hey, I'm laid off and have nothing else to do but look for work. I'm bored!!!

Love the card, very "manly"...
