Sailboat Birthday

Good Morning to you all!!! I woke up to some beautiful sunshine this am. I need to enjoy it now because the weather man says the rain is coming! I need to get that big order of cards done so I need to get busy but I wanted to pop in real quick and share a card I made for my daddy's birthday (yes..I am a Southern Girl and at 35 years old I still call him Daddy! LOL). I love this little set from PTI called Men of Life. I also love the patterned paper designed with it. I added Pure Poppy cardstock for mounting. I also cut out my favorite nesti, Label One to showcase the sailboat. You really cant tell from the pic but I sponged some Spring Rain all around the sailboat. I stamped and cut out an anchor and hung it on some hemp for a little extra flair. I hope you like it. Daddy did so thats great. I also made him a matching gift bag for the polo shirt I gave him. okay, got to get ready for hip hop class and then back home to work on that invitation order!
OH, by the way my hip hop teacher is going to be on the show "So you think you can dance"!!!
how cool is THAT! Out of 3000 people he was one of the 25 that made it onto the show. He is contractually bound to not tell us any more than that though. The show airs May 21st and we are planning a "Travis Party" We will all get together and watch it. So excited for him!
thanks for coming by today have an awesome Thursday!
Cheers!

Hi Julie, First off, let me say how much I love your card you posted today. Perfect for a man, gorgeous. Secondly, I noticed you'll be published twice this year in Cards magazine. Congratulations! That is so awesome, can't wait to see it in print!!

Julie - this is a perfect card for a man! They are so hard to make, but you've done a great job with it.

I just LOVE this card! I had talked myself out of Men of Life...and look what you've gone ahead and done to me, Julie?! lol I love the little stamped anchor. When I first saw it, I really thought it was a cool little metal embellishment. Great card!

As for your teacher?! I am SUCH a "So You Think You Can Dance" ADDICT (probably because I cannot dance and its wishful thinking! :>)! I got hooked on that show during the second season and cannot wait to see it every summer! Soooo....his name is Travis....I'll have to look for him. How fun! :>

Since I love girly colors so much, I have a hard time breaking out and making manly cards. I love your card, it is perfect for a man and is fabulous to look at by anyone. I'll definately be using it for inspiration. TFS!
