Manly Monday

Another week for the fun Manly Monday post where I post (usually) a card that could be given to a male. I gt the approval from the husband on it's manliness. If it passes inspection then the posts live on. This week's card is another thank you card. With all our medical issues, thank you cards get sent out frequently around here. The patterned paper used for the background I distressed with decorative scissors and then using my TH distressing tool. I really should get a % from Ranger for the many people I have turned on to that tool and their distressing inks. LOL. The paper is by Creative Imaginations. It's an older patterned and I've used it before but I just like the colors and I really dig circles. The middle strip is a sticker (again old) made by Mrs Grossman's. It reminds me of rusted metal. The die cuts are by my fave Spellbinders with the inside square stamps by Fiskars with ink by Ranger-Faded Jeans. I love the way the squares fit so perfectly into the dies. The sentiment is by American Crafts with ink by Versa Mark and embossing powder by Ranger. Cardstock by Recollections. Thanks for taking a look and if you have time leave a comment. They make me smile and I do try and visit your blog too.
