I love long week ends
Good evening - I was up visiting my Mom - she does amazingly well for being 92 years old. I did some errands for her and some cooking - of course - now I am home and too tired to do too much here. She has groceries but I don't - tomorrow. I did manage some paper therapy on the way through Madison. Of course, I needed all of it - OK - probably not.
We have an Operation Write Home card making party coming up in July - and I am busy making kits for it - most kits will be six cards. Try to use up some of my extra paper. It is amazing how many cards you can make with a 12 x 12 sheet of paper. I have had the plaid on this card for years, the stamp also, and the brads. The kraft paper and black paper are basics in your card supplies. I used a Sizzix embossing folder to add some depth to the kraft paper.
This card is based on the challenge at Cas-ual Fridays - Clean and Simple challenge blog on Fridays - this challenge was to make a masculine card using kraft paper. I think this is pretty clean and simple. Thanks for the inspiration to help me get another kit designed - now I need to go cut the pieces.
