Twice Is Nice Friday!

Gosh.. do I have some fun for you today! I have some new stamps and a fun challenge - all to honor the men in our life !

This weekend's Stamp Simply challenge put on by the talented Sharon Johnson was to create a man card -- but there is a catch. You have to use twine, rope, cording -- basically as Sharon calls it -- "man ribbon!" :-)

You can click onto Sharon's place HERE for all the details! And, here's a list of all the other Stamp Simply gals so you can surf on over to their place too!Janine, AJ, Becky, Tammy, Jennifer, Deb, and Barb - our guest designer!

Now... to my creation - which just so happens to use the brand new set - A Man's View from Flourishes! It's a set that will be released TONIGHT with the two other sets we sneak peeked this week!
Don't you just love that little newspaper? It says -- World's Greatest Dad! And, what would maxing and relaxing be -- without the remote! :-) This card is truly in the Stamp Simply style. I used my Nesties scalloped circle and circle dies for my shapes and the rest is just layering paper! Use a loopy brad to tie on your tag and -- THIS twine! I love this stuff! It is fine enough to thread through buttons!

Here's a close up! I just added a little detail with a cool grey Copic marker and a red water based marker. Cut it out and pop both pieces up for a little extra dimension and... done! Want to win this set??? Head on over to the Flourishes Newsletter and leave a comment on today's post! And.... be sure to surf around and see what the rest of the Flourishes Senior Design team cooked up!
