Defines Us:

Good morning all - today can only get better (I hope). I woke up at 5:15 this morning with our little Pixie Chihuahua having a seizure beside me.  Such a scary way to wake up for us and for her!  She's fine now (grumpy as all heck though), but that is number four in four months :(

I do have a card to share with you all, worked on it all day too!

I had a vision of this card for a week:  masculine, grungy, metal, banners, AND paper crimping:  basically just a lot going on in my head.  So I decided to sit down and put my vision to paper.


 Card Ingredients:  JustRite (Amazing Paper Grace) What Defines Us and Signed Sealed Delivered stamps, Craftsmart Black ink, Tim Holtz Frayed Paper ink, DCWV Timeless Type papers, Recollections cardstock, Tim Holtz metal medallion, Recollections Screw brads, American Crafts jute. Tools:  JustRite Two by Two Postage (Amazing Paper Grace) dies, sewing machine, paper crimper.

I made this card for the following challenges:  JustRite Friday Challenge - masculine,  Sugar Creek Hollow - Father's Day vintage, Sentimental Sundays - sentiments and metal.

Have a wonderful Monday - cheers!
