Dude! Happy Birthday...

Greetings y'all!

Here we are on June 9th, and it has been another gray and dreary week in Iowa.  It has been raining for most of the week, and it hasn't gotten above 65, in my area.  I suppose I shouldn't complain, as at least it's not in the 90's with tons of humidity, which I dislike. lol  The flip side is that I got to sit in my crafty space and create a few things this weekend.  Here is the first of a couple things I'll be posting this week.

I got home from work on Friday, and my June Simon Says Stamp card kit was waiting for me.  I was super excited and couldn't wait to play with my new goodies.  I finally own my first Kelly Purkey stamp set. :o)  There were tons of masculine elements to this kit, and if you know me, you know I don't do masculine very well.  I was having a bit of trouble putting anything together that I was happy with, so I walked away and then returned later.  This is my result.  I dig it, and I know the person who will be receiving this card.  I'm sure he'll like it.  He's got a mustache. lol 

I've combined the following challenges in my card today:

Sieze the Birthday #18 - Sketch
Bloggers Challenge - Masculine
Simply Create Too #39 - Father's Day and/or Masculine
Just Us Girls Challenge #192 - Washi Tape (the mustache background was made with the washi tape that came in the kit)

Our week is filled with work, and softball games, and then a road trip to the College World Series on Saturday, in Omaha.  I'm excited, as it has kind of been a family tradition to go to the CWS, and we've missed the last few years.  I'll post pics of our fun next week.

I do hope you have a wonderful week!

Hi Steph, Great card and love the washi background. I have that kit and posted a card I made using some of the stamps from the kit. It was a fun kit to work with and I love your card. Take care and have a fun Sunday

Very cool card, Steph! It sounds like your weather is mirroring ours. Cool, grey, and wet. I hope we both get some blue skies soon. :-)
