I Moose You

Hiya my blogging friends. I thought I would take a break from V-day posts to show you the Riley card I made the other day with another one of the images that Sue (coffeestamper) sent me. I wanted it to be masculine so no ribbon and lots of brads.



I colored the image with my copic markers and then sponged Mustard around the fire to give it a glow. The photo corners were made by cutting a square in half and taping the cut end to a sticky note and inserting it in my Martha Stewart Border Punch making sure to line up the point with the middle mark on the punch. I blew the dust off my Fiskars Corrugator and used it for the piece of DP behind the image. The sentiment was printed off the computer and I just knew that is what Riley was thinking. LOL! I added brads and natural twine to give it that finishing touch. I'm really pleased with how this turned out cause I struggle with masculine cards.

That's all I have for you today. I have just one more day and then I am back to work and the kids are back to school. I feel like I am trying to come down with the yuck that has been going around. I sure hope not because I really need to get back to work. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Have a wonderful day! TTFN
