Can you believe it has been nearly two weeks since I updated my blog!?!? sheeeeesh! What a whirlwind. On Wed. Oct 13, we moved into the new house! Woo Hoo! I keep wanting to pinch myself! I feel so undeserving and completely blessed! The house is beautiful and we have been unpacking to what seems to be no end! :) Thigns are looking more together. My son's room is all set with baseball decor and lots of toys. My walls are still pretty bare, with a few pieces of art up here and there... but everything else is pretty much together. Of course, my room over the garage has become a crazy catch-all! And my husband actually has organized all the extra stuff in our garage. This week i had a big deadline for a graphics project.... and I feel like I am just getting my head above water. :) All that to say, I AM still alive, and doing well!
Today's featured card was made with a special guy in mind. My brother Jeffrey is one awesome dude! He's kind, thoughtful, caring, compassionate, and pretty darn funny. The nice thing is he is one of the few people who actually thinks I am funny, too. :) He LOVES to play with my son. He will make a great daddy one day. He also has a great heart for missions, and desires to serve the Lord with his whole being. I am blessed to have an awesome brother! I love you, Jeffrey!
>> Papertrey Colors give this card a great masculine feel. I love the New Leaf, and Spring Moss combo.
>>My new "Embellishments" stamp set was used to frame out the edges and create the patterned strip.
>> Cheers to "Close to my Heart" for their awesome stamps providing the sentiment and calendar focal point.
>> How cute are my Tim Holtz accents? I love the tape with musical notes! (Perfect for my brother who has mad skills in the music department!) And I love the metal clip to add a nice manly texture!
>> AND of course, I loved coloring my rhinestones with a little COPIC tender lovin care! :)
