Stay Tuned....

I have been having a blast making LOTS of cards recently and today I made one for our son whose birthday is this next week.  Yep, gotta get it in the mail right away!  He's a football fan and so I used 2 elements in my card of his enjoyment..  But it's not what you think....    And this card is also in response to challenge 204 at Red Rubber Designs.  (It's about time I started in on challenges again.)

First of all one needs a television.  He has gone to games in person but mostly he watches from his living room.  He is a Sea Hawks fan so I know where he'll be on Feb. 1st!

And this is where he sits.  I used scrap paper and matched my Copic markers to the paper.  All stamps are by A|Muse Studios.

I did make another Birthday card using the "Nautical View" set by Fun Stampers Journey.  I also used dies by Spellbinders.

A bit of green burlap, buttons, and sponged edges and voila!

Here's a bit closer look at the focal point.  Turned out pretty nice!  I think I have enough cards to last for a LONG time of posts!

Now pop on over to Red Rubber Designs and check out the challenge and the challenge takers!

Both cards are sharp looking. That recliner stamp is neat, could be used for birthday, Father's day..etc. Good job, Sistah!
