Hello crafty friends,
Are you all ready for the weekend? I'm so ready for it and all I want to do is relax and watching some movies and maybe organize my photopolymer stamps and dies. What are you guys doing?

Today's card is one I created for my father-in-law's birthday.  OMG! creating a masculine card is so hard for me, so I went to Pinterest for some inspiration and this is what I came up with, I hope you like it.  Thank you for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!!

A close up of the anchor heat embossed on the wood elements which I also sponged around with Early Espresso ink.  The Happy Birthday looks a bit messy, but I like the look of it for this card.

I have so many buttons that it was about time to dig them out and use them on this card with some hemp. The base is a A2 base and the designer paper is about 3-1/4 X 4 and the squares are from the Squares Collection Framelits.

Place your Stampin' Up! Order at my
