Gray Wolf

Hello friends.  Summer is here and with it comes a different schedule, which makes it difficult for me to fit in crafting and blogging time.  But I'll pop in whenever I can.  A warm welcome to my new followers.  I'm so happy to have you here. :) 

Here is a masculine card, which I enjoyed making.  Usually masculine cards are a real challenge for me, but this one was fun.  The beautiful stamp, which I borrowed from my daughter, is from Sarasota Stamps.  I colored it with watercolor pencils.

 I'm entering these challenges:
CES Challenges - Woodland Creatures
Inspire Me Fridays - Always Anything Goes
Hanna and Friends - Card for a Man
The Stamping Boutique - No DP

My hubby has had some vacation days and he has spent some of that time working on a nice wooden counter in my craft room.  He only has a bit of trim work left to do on it.  It's great to have a handy and loving hubby to do things like this for me.  In fact, he's the one who came up with the idea, so that I could better use my space. 

  • My wonderful hubby and the new counter that he built for me.
  • Some much needed dresses that we've found new and used at terrific prices.
  • Lots of rain - we need it so badly.
  • Some awesome happy mail.
Have a fabulous day!!!

Inky hugs!
