Since today is Tuesday I will be doing several challenges that are posted in blog land. The first challenge today is over at Caardvark's where they challenged us to make a 6 x 6 card. It is not my usual style to make a card with those dimensions so I took my ruler to my stamp drawer to see what I could come up with. Sitting on the top of my stamps was this old fashioned car, along with other old fashioned cars and trucks, that I purchased at a flea market for 50 cents. Masculine cards are a challenge for me, so I thought these sturdy cardboard images would be perfect for the men in my life. Using vintage scrapbook paper, I muddied the paper with a brown ink-pad, and added brads and an old key. "Old Fashioned Birthday Wishes" were typed out on the computer, muddied with a carmel coloured ink-pad, and glued on the card front.
Well, I'm off to the beach with my daughter and then she is treating me to a manicure and pedicure as an early birthday present. I love these girl days together. Hope you enjoy your day too.
