I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

Time Sure Does Fly...

I make birthday cards for my mother-in-law each year so she can give them out to the family.  We mostly have girls on that side of the family, my son is the only grandson and there are only four adult males.  So as you can imagine, I am used to just making cards for girls/women.  My MIL told me that she needed a male card made up for my BIL cause his birthday is next month.  PERFECT! two of my favorite challenge blogs have assigned this very theme! Pause Dream Enjoy's "For the Boys" and Anything Goes "Make It Manly" are just awesome! I also followed Mojo Monday's sketch for this week's challenge too.  The patterned paper all came from Echo Park This and That Charming 6x6 pack (LOVE 6x6 packs!). The clock came from Designer's Calendar cartridge.  I inked around the edges with ColorBox Chalk Ink Prussian Blue.  I tied some jute around the front, but didn't want a bow, so just left it a knot.  I printed the outside and inside sentiment off my computer.  Then just stamped a generic "Happy Birthday!" with ColorBox Chestnut Pigment Ink.
