It feels good to be back



It felt so good to be able to go into my dungeon (my craft space is in the basement...soon to be moved to another location...more on that later) and make something today. I haven't done anything in so long i felt like i was back to card making 101!
I made this for my brother in law, Rick. It took me more time that i care to admit! lol! Lots of stitching on this and i used my cropodile to make faux brads! His birthday is this Sunday. Happy Birthday Rick!
recipe
stamps: Wanted, Circle of Friendship
card stock ; outlaw dp, sage shadow, really rust, close to cocoa and chocolate chip
ink: vanilla craft & choc chip
embellies: choc chip ribbon, star brads, and clear baubles (the baubles i found at M's in the floral department)

Your card is beautiful, Lorraine (well, in a masculine kind of way)! The time and effort you put into it was worth it!

Sewing always involves extra work - that is why I always reach for my All in a Row set - Beate showcased that set and I realized it saves a lot of effort! Your card is handsome! :) Love all the extra details - especially the sewing and medallion! So glad you are back at it!!

Wow girl! You spent a lot of time on this one and it shows. I love all the stitching. I need to be making some masculine cards. Thanks for the inspiration.
