Manly Card


Well I am a day late with this card, but hopefully you will still enjoy it. I made this card for my husband just because. This card combines 2 of his favorite things, grilling and playing poker. He loves to grill but never thinks he does a good job, but he always does great!! Here is how this card came together:

Cardstock: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White

Stamp Sets: King of the Grill (pg. 29 Summer Mini) Item # 120066 Clear Mount
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red Classic Ink
Accessories: Watercolor Pencils (pg. 194), Game Night Designer Series Paper (retired), Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch ( both punches on pg. 203 Catalog)

I love the red, black and white colors together, it looks so rich and fun!! His exact words when he opened the card, "What do you want to buy, now?" I guess he knows me pretty well, but he was the one surprised when I told him I just wanted to make a card for him. He really liked it and was glad I didn't want to buy anything.......... Well as my saying goes what the UPS man delivers before my husband gets home is our little secret.

Well here we are, almost the weekend!! Do you all have big plans??? I do!!! I have a card club tomorrow night at my upline's (Frances) house and then Saturday is going to be a day of creating and crafting with Frances!!! I am so looking forward to that!!! I have been so keyed up about ideas for growing my Stampin' Up business that I can hardly stand it!! Luckily for me Frances is very motivated about her business and a great teacher so she has been teaching me and helping nurture my business!!!! In case I haven't said it enough THANKS!! Really I appreciate it and I am having so much fun!!! Hard to belive this is considered a second job!!!

I will have more to share this weekend after the all the crafting this weekend!!!! have a great weekend and I look forward to sharing new stuff with you Monday!!
