Masculine Thank You

Hi friends! Just popping in to share a thank you note that I created for my son. There's nothing really fancy about it, but I needed to crank out several of them and of course I needed them to ooze "guy".

I think what I came up with is just what he needed! Don't you? Simple, to the point and oozes "guy"! I didn't think he would appreciate something with a bunch of flowers! 

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Word Play (inside of Card), Pretty Petites (Sale-a-bration)
Ink: Black Stazon
Card Stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Note Cards & Envelopes
Accessories: Big Shot, Chevron Folder, Petite Curly Label Punch (Sale-a-bration),

What a Difference a Day Makes

Hi Friends! Yesterday, I mentioned that I was making birthday cards while trying to get Christmas cards done. Well I was able to make some progress. Although I still feel behind, I do feel somewhat better.

I cased a card from the Annual Catalog and changed it up a bit, but I will only make a few of this particular card because there are just too many different elements/steps in getting this one done.  I need something simple but with a wow factor. You know what I mean. This card has the wow factor, but it is just too involved.

So what do you think of the card? Is it worthy of mass production?

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Christmas Deer (128146), Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370)
Card Stock: Real Red (102482), Wild Wasabi (108641), Whisper White (100730)
Ink: Real Red (126949), VersaMark (102283)
Accessories: Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (101930), Embossing Buddy (103083), Decorative Label Punch (120907), Big Shot (113439), Petal-a-Plenty Folder (116824), Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die (120893), Labels Collection Framelits (125598), Bitty Banners Framelits (129267), Pearls Basic Jewels (119247)
