It's been a long time since I've done anything crafty. I've had all kinds of intentions...just not enough time to *sneak* away to produce anything. I was supposed to have a "date" with my sewing machine a few days ago, but opted to go swimming with the girls instead. Actually, a dunk in the pool sounds mighty good right now too. :)
But, this afternoon, I put my blinders on as I was bound and determined not to blog-surf (or "blurf" as I call it) and to actually disregard what all my web "friends" are doing because ---- they are so productive ALL the time....and I put together this card for my sweet hubby for his special day on Sunday:
I realized really quickly that I was feeling a little bit rusty so I reminded myself of a challenge going on over at Betsy Veldman's blog. Go here to check it out. She wanted us to find a piece of masculine inspiration (menswear) and make a card with it. Well, I didn't exactly go too far for my inspiration. I went right over to my drawer of blue patterned papers and found this piece that got me jump started:
Ultimately, I like the way it turned out. I call myself "Hard-Headed" because when I finally finished I discovered that I spent 3 hours or so by myself putting together this ONE card. I tried a few other combinations but nothing was fitting "just right."
Oh well, that's the way it works out sometimes. Thanks Betsy for the challenge!!
