Good afternoon......

I know you probably did not expect another post from me so quick :D!! Well, while I was going through my blogger updates I noticed that I never did the challenge this week over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ where the challenge this week is to make a card for your DH or SO or whatever you have ;D to let them know that you love them. To find out more about it head on over there and check it out. Well, this one was kind of easy for me, as I love my hubby but don't tell him nearly enough (and the other way around ;P) so I decided to go with some of his favorite colors and since I don't have very many stamps that say I love you, I decided to go with the SU set "Three little words". The card itself is pretty simple. I started out with a long retired base of Buckaroo Blue, some Chocolate Chip and last but not least some Basic Grey Archaic DP. Love that stuff and it has such nice, a little more masculine papers in it. My hubby is not a man of lots of frill and stuff so I chose the Nesties Megabilities curved rectangles and added some WeRMemoryKeepers silver Hardware. Since I did not want to use ribbon, I used some Hemp Twine in natural and brown. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. To make the card look more ruffed up ;D I used my Tim Holtz Distressing tool and distressed the edges of the Chocolate Chip layer.


Now all that is left to do is go on and add my name to Mr. Linky over at Stampin'
Sisters in Christ and hand it to my DH when he gets home tonight. Who knows it might just end up to be a romantic kind of night ;P;P.


Oh, it would help if I showed you guys the card, right?



Three little words.......




Recipe:
Paper: SU Buckaroo BLue, SU Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey Archaic

Stamp: SU Three little words

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa

Accessories: Nesties Megabilities curved rectangles, WeRMemoryKeepers silver Hardware, Hemp Twine in natural and brown, Foam Tape, Dimensionals

So, what do you think? Is this masculine enough? I mentioned it yesterday, that I don't do masculine well, but I think I am getting the hang of it :D. I mean two cards in two days that are masculine. You think that is a sign, LOL?

Well, that is it for me for now. I still have to finish cleaning out my 4 y.o. closet. Let me tell ya, my child has way too much stuff.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

Hugs,

It certainly is masculine enough, and it has the most important thing... those three little words that mean so much!
