But I decided that I was going to forge ahead with the business of making stuff. So, I went to my "This ain't no Ikea-Showcase-Pretty-Colors-On-the-Wall" studio. BTW...I'm from Georgia. We say things like "This ain't no" or "ain't got no"...and even though there are two negatives as in 'ain't' and 'no' it does not create a positive. "Ain't no"....means IS NOT or ARE NOT "ain't got no" means NONE, NADA, NOTHING, NICHTS! So if you are not from the south perhaps you will feel enlightened to our way of saying things a bit.
Anyway, my husband's birthday is coming up shortly so I decided to make him a card with some leftovers. (He loves leftover by the way...) I don't think anything I used on this card is something I purchased within the last year. Old, old, old....just like my husband will be on his next birthday!
Actually my husband is 2 months younger than I am....he's smart, though...he never throws that up in my face.
So here is the card I made using the weekly sketch from Clean&Simple Stamping. It's really quite simple and didn't take long at all to make.
I used kraft paper from a pack I bought at Joann's, printed papers by MOD (I don't even know if this company exists any longer...), Stamps by Hero Arts and Page Pebbles by Making Memories. I also used a Fiskars border punch...I love that spiral notebook paper edge. I also Baroque Burgundy Stampin' Up ink. A little twine tied at the top finished it off.
Simple, simple, simple. And it only took me about 5 minutes to clean up my mess! :)
I am also putting this in the CAS-Fridays challenge which was to make a masculine card and use kraft paper.
Happy Krafting (terrible pun....I know...it's late....my room is clean....I don't know what to do with myself...)
