Hi there......

on this very cloudy and very humid day here in Southern AZ. I have been busy yesterday creating a few cards which I can't show you as of yet ;P, but I was also able to make 2 cards which I am going to show you right here and now :D:D:D. You know when you have this idea in your head and you just can't stop thinking about it. Well, that is exactly what happened with this very masculine card I came up with. For those that know me, know that I have a very, VERY hard time with masculine cards and they usually take me forever to come up with, because they just can't be too cute and not have too many embellishments on them (I am addicted to embellishments :D:D:D, especially ribbon and flowers!!!), but is was not so with this card!!! Everything came together so quickly I surprised myself, LOL!!!. So, here is my very masculine

Psalm 19:34 card


Paper: PTI Kraft, SU Chocolate Chip

Stamp: Verve Meditations

Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Chalk Box Chestnut Roan, SU Close to Cocoa

Accessories: Cuttlebug emb. folder forest branches, Nesties Megabilities curved rectangles, Recollections antic copper mini brads, Jute twine from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store , Faith Keepers "pray" charm in antic copper

So, what you all think about this very masculine card? I love the way it came out. I think I am getting more comfortable doing masculine. Even my DH said "Wow, I like this one!" He usually just gives me the "look" and that is it, but this time he actually answered me :D:D:D.

Wait, that is not it, I have another card. This one is a card that I made to go with a name frame I made for a friend of a friend. The name frame is not all the way done, I have to change a few things, but the card is done and I really like that it is not the traditional soft and elegant ;D.

Have a look and see for yourself

Elegant Cheer meets Baroque Motifs

Paper: SU Chocolate Chips, PTI Rustic White, K&Company Roam

Stamps: SU Elegant Cheer, SU Baroque Motifs

Ink: SU Close to Cocoa, Chalk Box Creamy Brown

Accessories: MS Butterfly punch, Recollections half pearls, Nesties Classic ovals, Kaiser Crafts chocolate half pearls, chocolate satin ribbon, Dew Drops in Pearl Lettuce, Prima mini blooms

What do you think? Does this one classify as a Wedding card?

See the couple is into earth tones, so I thought I'd use just that :D

Well, I am off to go to the grocery store. My DH gave me a hit last night that he is out of grape jelly and PB. He loves a PB&J sandwich ever so often after dinner. I have no idea why, but he just loves it. He does not like to share his PB either :D. So, I will go for now. Thanks for stopping by today, it really means a lot to me that you do take the time and to stop by and leave me some love. Your comments keep me going and they truly do make my day.

Thank you Sabrina for stopping by my blog. I am sorry to say that YES you do need the fancy tags. They are so cool. I bought mine at the online store Cut at Home with my August 40% off discount. I can't believe it but it came in 2 days. Run your fingers over there right now!!!!
