Man, You Rock

I have two cards to share with you today! Both are Zindorf inspired. Well, actually one is an out and out pure case! LOL!
My son, Stephen and I were in Michaels this week. He needed something for Halloween and we were shopping. He was looking at all the ghoul stuff and I was stalking the stamp isles. He found what he was looking for and found me drooling over a stamp set by Inkadinkado, Rock Star. He asked me if I was going to get the set since it was so cool. and I told him that I put myself on a budget and I wasn't buying anymore new stamps! He pointed out that the stamp set was only $9.99 and if I used my 50% off coupon I could do it. I said nope, not going to buy it. We head to the register and he has his fake arm to purchase, he puts that on the counter and the Rock Star stamp set. He asked me for my coupon and he bought the set for me! Isn't he a keeper? LOL!
Thanks Stephen!

The first card is a card that I made for my brother in law. His birthday is coming up. He plays the guitar so I thought that he would get a kick out of this. I used my brayer and inked up all earth elements colors, close to cocoa, more mustard, pumpkin pie and sponged a little too.

Then I see this card on Michele Zindorf's blog! I'm good at copying. I'm not really good at picking colors out on my own, but just tell me the colors and what to do and I can copy it, or at least try to copy it. Again, I didn't have all the colors she used so I improvised. And I am very happy with the outcome. This is so much fun!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!
