Good Afternoon,

Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #13
Word Art Wednesday Challenge # 86
Make It Mondays #146
The Crafting Cafe
Cards For Men Challenge #13



Cardstock: Recollections

Ink: Tim Holtz Distress: mowed lawn, faded jeans, walnut stain
Gelly Roll Metallic Pen: #551

I created this card using an image I found on google, I altered the image and created a studio file with it. I inked the edges of most of my papers and created my banner from a strip of white cardstock. I folded the strip every few inches then inked up my newly created banner! I choose a few papers from the MME Dream 6X6 paper pad. This paper pad has been great for male cards, I have used it on the past 5 cards Ive made for men. I highly recommend adding it to your collection, I picked it up at Michaels. 

Thank you for stopping by and please become a follower of my blog!

Lemonade in a Jar makes you SMILE!

Hello all!

CardzTV Challenge 31
Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge 13
Muse Challenge 23 - I used their inspiration to help me design this card. I pulled colors from their example, I also choose a dancing lemonade jar because the sentiment Celebrate reminds me of an outdoor picnic with dancing, lemonade and lots of smiles.
