Good morning, Friends! My husband made it home safe and sound yesterday! Sounds like the flights were uneventful which makes for safe and easy traveling! So thankful for that! And Nick was glad to have his dad home, too! A quiet evening at home watching some basketball was really nice! Today I really need to get back to doing the laundry and getting some stamping done. I have a workshop coming up next week and need to start thinking about that. And I haven't stitched in quite a while. We do have another quiet evening around here so I should be able to get some of that done tonight!
Today's card was inspired by two challenges! I recently got By the Tide stamp set with my birthday discount! I thought it would make some nice masculine cards. I used the sketch at CCMC-002 (Create with Connie and Mary Spring Edition Challenge) and the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. These colors are right up my alley - Crumb Cake, Basic Black and Very Vanilla! And I thought these colors were perfect for masculine cards! So I took a piece of Crumb Cake designer paper and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. This is layered onto a piece of Basic Black. Then I added three metallic brads and layered this panel onto a card base of Crumb Cake. I used the 3" circle die to cut a circle from Very Vanilla and stamped the image from By the Tide in Crumb Cake. I also sponged the edges of the circle with Crumb Cake and then popped it up onto the card. I stamped the fish in black StazOn onto Very Vanilla and cut it out. It, too, is popped up onto the circle. Then I stamped the greeting from Sweet Essentials in black StazOn onto a strip of Very Vanilla and flagged one end. I tucked this under the fish. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!
