Hello everyone. It is almost the New Year. Are you ready to make those New Year's Resolutions? Me neither. LOL! I try to do at least one; but not if I don't think I can follow through with it. I would like to lose a little more weight this next year; but not sure I am ready to give up some of my favorite foods. I lost 25 lbs the year before and have kept 23 lbs of it off. My weight fluctuates a few pounds each day. I used "The New Sonoma Diet" to lose it before; which is an easy diet to follow.
It's time for another great week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge #44 - Manly Card. If you would like to be a Guest Designer, put GDT after your name when you enter. I usually find it hard to create manly cards. This time was easier. I chose to create a Congratulations card for my son-in-law for his promotion at work and also for buying a fabulous little blue car. He is a hard worker and deserves the good things coming to him.
I chose a digi from QKR Stampede "Old Car" and love how it turned out. I purchased a CTMH retired paper packet called Felicity Collection. I fell in love with this paper packet as soon as I saw it. It includes some great papers for the men as well as some for the females too.
Supplies I used for this card:
Die Cuts - Cricut Artiste and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridges
Paper - CTMH Felicity Collection - Retired
Cardstock - CTMH Sky outside and CTMH Twilight inside with CTMH White Daisy for sentiments
Base card - Ivory
Image - QKR Stampede "Old Car"
Ink outside - CTMH Sky
Ink inside - CTMH Twilight and CTMH Crystal Blue inside
Stamp Set - Outside - CTMH "Casual Expressions" - D1525 and CTMH "It's Your Day" (retired)
Stamp Set - Inside - CTMH Blue Ribbon - C1464
CTMH Square Durables - Z1705
