I really needed a manly happy Birthday card for my Father-in-Law last week. I did not have a clue where to start. Before I ran my kids to band I set out all of the colors I wanted to use and in the order I wanted them placed. I took a picture of the pile with my cell phone and took it with me. twice a week I sit for 2 hours while my boys take turn having band lessons. The downfall of not living in town where they could walk. So I studied the picture and the layout from the sketch challenge while I was waiting. So after I got home and fed the kids lunch I was ready to make it all fall in place. I loved the spinner cards and just had to have them but the right opportunity just did not come up until now. I did not have any black brads so I had to make them but heating the up with the heat gun, dipping them in the black embossing powder and heating again if needed. I love that sponging ink around the edges of the Love Letter paper does so much but yet so little. I had it all lined up straight and was ready to adhere and I decided to shift it all just a bit. I am glad that I did.
