Manly Thank You

If I am to keep up with my New Year's resolution, I better get posting here!

This card is one I have made a couple times when needing a masculine thank you, and I think it fits the bill...I also made it for my stamp club's thank you card swap a few months back. I use my card swaps to try something new or different...to stretch myself and hopefully learn something. I think I've been sucessful so far.

Anyway, back to the card. This is one of those Hero Arts collage-y type stamps that came out a couple years back. I really loved them all, but didn't buy them all, because I didn't know how I would use them. This one I loved the most and had to buy. I decided to keep the colors simple (safe) and cut out sections of the stamp (stamped a second time), mat and pop them up. I was quite pleased with the result.

Thanks for peeking!

Miss you and hope the New Year is going well. Can't believe it is almost Feb. I am ready for spring. Just wanted to pop in and say hi...and of course, your creation is stellar!
