A Man's Card

Just stopping by to post a card I recently made for my hubby.

Very easy...I ran an inkpad over a page out of an old book, then tore it into strips and layered it onto dark blue cardstock, which was layered onto the white card.  Then I used alcohol inks on glossy paper to make the background that I stamped the old truck on (TAC stamps).  I layered this onto white cardstock and onto the cut strips.  Three little pearls on the bottom and the card was done.

Hope you enjoy it.  It's very hot here and I've been having migraines, so not so much stamping for me lately.  About this time of year I start whining for cooler weather (which won't get here until late October or early November).

Stay cool...

Thank you

You are probably wondering why I haven't posted in awhile. It's because hubby got a new toy and he's keeping me busy on the weekends, the only real time I have to play.  Here is a pic of his new toy:

Isn't it cute?  It looks much smaller than it is. Inside it has a dining area that converts to a double bed, a sink, refrigerator and 2 burner stove, and a couch that converts to bunk beds.  And it has air conditioning. He likes to cook outside, so he also sets up a camp kitchen under a canopy and we usually eat outdoors on a picnic table when camping. So we have been camping and having a good time, but I've missed stamping.

As most of you know, I live in Florida. I have followed the Casey Anthony case since Caylee was missing and people were looking for her. A couple weekends ago we were camping in our new little travel trailer (pics below), and lo and behold our neighbor was a court judge in that jurisdiction.  He was over on this side of the state to get away from all the hoopla surrounding the case. We talked about it briefly, and I continued to follow the trial on Twitter. We had such a good time playing cards, and fishing so we exchanged addresses so we could camp together again.  After we got home, he called and invited me to go to court to hear some of the Anthony case in person.  How could I turn down an offer to witness history being made?  So last Saturday, my daughter and I made the trip to Orlando, where he gave us passes to attend the trial that day. It was a very educational experience.  

To show my appreciation, I made the card below to send to him. I doubt if he's ever received a Thank You card for sending someone to court  :-)

I also made my hubby a very similar card for Father's Day.  Stamps are Stampscapes and My Paper Moon.

Hope to see you again soon....
