Birthday in Blue

My creativity is starting to return, although you can't tell it by this card! Since I'm lacking in blogging material, I thought I'd post it anyway:) I needed a "guy card" and let's face it - there are some guys that really don't care what the card looks like, or even if they get one!

The two stamps are from the same Inkadinkado set. I inked the circle one up with some Versafine ink and then used a Tim Holtz distress marker around the outer edges. The sentiment was inked up with just the marker. The patterned paper is from a Die Cuts With a View matstack and the solid matting is from Stampin' Up! The circle panel is mounted on foam squares.

Update on my mom - I went down to visit them and go with them to her appointment with the radiologist on Thursday. She will likely decide to have radiation. Doesn't sound very pleasant, but is highly recommended in her case. She will see her regular doctor next week and get his recommendation, also. She would probably have about six or seven weeks of it, five days a week.

I think I finished my stamping room finally - except for the pictures, clock, etc. to hang on the walls. Yippee! We still have things to do around the house (I've been working on scrubbing cupboard doors, etc. and then polishing them, cleaning windows, scrubbing sinks and showers. The previous owners were really quite hard on the house!) but we're getting there.

I printed out my calendars for 2014 earlier this week and got them all cut on Thursday. I feel like I'm slowly making progress. Last year at this time I had at least January and February done and possibly March. Plus, I had lots of Christmas cards made already. Oh well, that was last year and this is this year and I WILL be ready when the time comes. Maybe it will be another year of making about 50 cards the same and the other 30 or so different. I often end up liking the mass-produced ones better than lots of the unique ones anyway!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Guy cards are the hardest. This is perfect just that. Great job.

I like seeing cards for guys and kids, always need ideas for those! and this one is great, simple, but classy!

I agree about card for the guys and that many don't care if they even get one. :) Cards for ladies are much easier!!!

Glad you are making progress with everything in your new home. I had no idea you had so much repair/cleaning up to do after the previous owners. You are going to need a vacation!

It's a perfect guy card. I like the way you matched up the stripes on the paper. Pretty stamp, too. It can be dressed up or down. Nice for quick cards. Best wishes to your Mom. They wouldn't suggest radiation if they didn't think it would do her some good, so sounds hopeful.
