Finallly!!! I made a card!!
Wow.... you know it's pathetic when you get excited about finding time to create a ("a" as in ONE) card!
It's been such a long time since I sat down and relaxed and created a card...just because"...and I have to say..I am missing my creative time...alot
The truth is..this card was not a "just because" card...Gary actually asked me to make a guy card for a friend...but wow...this almost felt like a leisurely relaxed block of time for card making and creating...so I am happily considering it a victory! I FINALLY sat down and made a card!!!
This card is very simple and basic...and a great card to make if you don't have oodles of time to get out lots of supplies and materials...I used some basic Stampin Up! card stock (Kraft, Black..Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla) and a nice "guy" type of image with a beautiful sentiment...and a nice pocket watch image used as a backgrund...all were stamped out with TH Distressed (Vintage Photo) ink...I also daubered all of the edges with the TH ink..(even the Kraft...Black and Chocolate Chip cs)..and DONE!
This is a simple nice card to make in multiples if you're needing to stock up on guy cards...
but for now..I'll allow myself to be happy that I found a little speck of time to make "a" card!
