I do have a stash of cards - most of them on the feminine side. So when my nephew-in-law's birthday came up, I did not really have a card for him. I've had this stamp for quite a while now, and have always wanted a chance to use it. Here is that chance :)
I used sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the colors from Play Date Cafe .
Patrice over at The Old Back Porch has some great photography going on. She also has a 52 - Card Pick Up Challenge going on. . . to make one card a week for 52 weeks. Now on Tuesday, I am going back to work (I am a teacher). So my time for card-making will become very limited. I am not a fast creator. Ideas need to mull around in my head for a while. I start and stop my creations - sometimes they come out like the ideas in my head. . . sometimes not. Anyway the reason I told you all this is, that I think the challenge of one card a week (for the rest of the school year) will be a good one for me :)
On a personal note: (skip if you'd like)
Now it is Labor Day Weekend - a big BBQ weekend. Hubby got a call to invite us to a Q and bring a side dish. Me, I am not much of a cook, and I would just go to the local deli and get some type of salad. My husband really does not cook - except for an awesome breakfast, and to BBQ what I put before him. Once in a great while, he will get the urge to cook. And that is happening now, while I write this post. Here is the photo of his finished creation:
Here is the link for the recipe: Festive Pasta Salad - he said to let you know the tomatoes were his own idea :)
Looks yummy, and tastes good too!
