Enthusiasm:



Good morning!  The week has just flown by, I can't believe it's Friday already.  I have had so much to do this week, I haven't had a moment to myself!  Hopefully by Monday, things will calm down again.

Today, I have a very simple card to share with you but I LOVE it!  It a no-nonsense, no-cutie-pie male card:
Card Ingredients:  Stampendous! The Great Outdoors stamp;  Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap ink;  K&Co and DCWV papers; Labels 18 Nestie;  Martha Stewart baker's twine;  vintage button.  Tools:  sewing machine;  Making Memories edge distressor.

I made this retirement card for the following challenges:  PaperPlay - in stitches;  Samual Taylors (Prize: Tim Holtz inks!) - distress;  Craftroom Challenge - clean and simple;  The House that Stamps Built - sketch:


Thanks for coming to visit!  Have a wonderful weekend.
