Good evening everyone! With today being Rememberance Day here in Canada, we had the day off. This morning my oldest son Tristan played in the Rememberance Day ceremony and Robin, Kaitlyn, Rob and I went too support our troops and remember. I then took my middle son to a friends and well spent just a tad bit too much time on the phone this afternoon...LOL.
Rob shared some really shocking news with me last night! One of his employee's at work her husband had surgery yesterday (we had been visiting with them on Sunday at the Christmas party)! They had found out he has cancer and surgery was done to remove it! We have been praying that they were able to get it all. Rob asked me to make a card for them today and to let them know we care. Now this gentleman he is just awesome and really loves motorcycles....I knew the perfect stamp but wouldn't you know it I don't own it...*gasp*...LOL. So the next best thing I figured was a truck from Little Paper Shop.
After the stamp was picked, I went ahead to find a color combo....the one I went with was The Color Dare - Night of Navy, Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz. My thought this was a good man card color combo. Thanks for the help ladies. More inspiration the better right? Well I hopped over for that inspiration to Tuesday Morning Sketches and Melissa Craig sure did not disappoint! Isn't this a fantastic sketch...thanks Melissa. Could I make this a 3 in 1 challenge you bet with the good help of the awesome ladies over at Cute Card Thursday their challenge is Anything Goes! Be sure to stop bye these challenge blogs as they are always inspiring.
Here is my card:
Sentiment is by Verve and the truck is Little Paper Shop! Linen thread, navy ribbon, scallop border punch, corner punch, night of navy, whisper white, soft suede, pear pizzazz are all stampin up! Cuttlebug folder Name?? Spellbinders small and large ovals (scalloped too).
Well I should get going and change some laundry over. My kids have tomorrow off, we are busy for the first part of the morning and then I am hoping to hit my craft room to make some more cards. I really need to get working on those christmas cards...LOL. So many idea's and stamps...so little time...LOL. Wishing you all a super Thursday night!
