Hello! Happy Wednesday! Today, we are looking forward to gathering with some friends and the kids are going to work on Tie-Dieing T-shirts! I am looking forward to a fun day as I haven't seen some of these good friends for almost a month now. I was spoiled this past school year. We were together at least two times a month due to joining together for Writing Class.

Today , I am sharing some family photos from our trip last week AND a Manly card using stamps from QKR Stampede. When looking at their Stamp Selection, you will see they have a WONDERFUL collection of masculine automobile/ transportation images that are sure to inspire you to create many great cards for those men in your life!!!

For this card, I used the STARBURST Technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter April 2006 Issue. I made a mistake though, and covered up the center by using a sketch! OY! LOL

A few challenges I participated in:

Here are some more details:
Stamps: Old Cars from QKR Stampede
Cardstock: Glossy, DP unknown it was a scrap!, Light Blue, White
Accessories: Brayer, Spectrum Pad, Blue & White grosgrain, Blender Pen, MS Decorative Punch, Dew Drops, Mini Glue Dots

Below are a few family pictures from our trip. We had such a nice, relaxing time!

I have such fine hair, my head often gets sun burned. I do not consider myself a "hat" person, but need to wear one so my bean doesn't get sunburned!

My children are currently in a Dragon Phase, so they were THRILLED to see this and insisted on having their picture taken with it!

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy your day!!!

Love your work, laughed when I saw the Wooden Indian w/your kids. That is outside the moccasin shop in Wis Dells, right? My husband's cousin owns that shop!
