Manly Monday

This Manly Monday is just a card from me. I didn't get around to blogs last week to ask people for their cards. Things have been very busy lately that I just don't have time like I use to. Although I think there is a light at the end of my tunnel and I will continue to believe that more time will become available in the near future.  

For today I used Metal Mesh Stamp found at A Cherry on Top by

to create my background. I heat embossed it on blue cardstock with clear embossing powder. I used Versa Mark ink and Stamp N Plus embossing powder. I do love this stamp for guy cards. 

The guitar is cut by my friends Cricut. I'm not sure the cartridge or the patterned paper. It was in her scraps bin and I snagged it. The green cardstock is by Bo Bunny which I have attached with Making Memories eyelets. The sentiment is computer generated which I think is fitting for a graduate but will probably use this one for the last week of May. I like to refer to it as Birthday-O-Rama! We have a birthday sometimes 2 and an anniversary in just that one week. Out of all of them there is only 1 female birthday. Oh snap! 

Anyway, Hopefully I will be able to spot some awesome guy cards to share with you next week and as always-Thank you for looking.

  9. I would have never thought to cut the guitar in a patterned paper, but it really works and stands out. I am really into embossing the backgrounds of cards right now, so this is right up my alley. Thank you for joining TTPH this week.
