Happy Monday, Everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I got plenty of sun and relaxation! I even got motivated to go back to the gym today! This week's challenge on http://artygirlzchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ is to make a card for a man! Well,tomorrow is my step-dad's birthday! He's a contractor. So, to make this card, I used some Jolee's tool stickers, a palette of browns with some white and a suede frame to create this little handy man's birthday card! I used scraps from my bin and the happy came from the "So Very" Stampin' Up set and the birthday stamp came from a set from AC Moore. I accented with some silver round brads and a couple of square pewter brads. So that's that! Hope you like it! Have a great night!

Today I worked on the challenge for the Stamp Something Blog. The challenge was to use 3 colors, 3 embellishments and 3 layers. I used my winnings from one of their previous challenges to make a red, white and blue birthday card! I used white cardstock as the base, a piece of red textured cardstock, some navy cardstock that I embossed with a Fiskars texture plate, rwb ribbon, the Stampin' Up ribbon punch, the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set, the metal rimmed tag, 3 brads (embellished with Stickles) and red and navy inks. I also embellished the metal rimmed tag with Stickles and a tiny rub-on! I think I have too many embellishments for the challenge, but I like the color combo anyway!
