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!

You know what Julie...I didn't even realize that the other tiny stamp was a TV remote control! GASP! I should have looked more closely! Awesome manly card!

I ALWAYS love what you come up with, but this time I can't decide if I love more your masculine card or the new releases of Flourishes. I love their masculine stamps. And that topiaries!!!! Wow!
