I'm Back!

I'm Back!!! I apologize for being "Missing In Action", but I do have a wonderful reason for it...We took our first family vacation to DISNEY WORLD!!! It truly was Magical and I enjoyed every minute of it! Then when I returned, I still had a week and a half of school left, so here we are...the last day of school and now I finally have time to create a card and actually post it over here on the blog!!! My card today is for this week's Blogger's Challenge...create a manly card. I've already posted my Father's Day cards, so I thought that this would be a good time to make a card for my uncle who has been sick in the hospital. Manly cards are not always easy for me, but I am happy with this one. I stayed with rich colors (Chocolate Chip and Old Olive) and an image (Thoughts and Prayers set) that I think works perfectly for a man or a woman. I added some Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon and embossed my sentiment to finish the whole thing off. If you'd like some ideas for "manly cards", just click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my right sidebar. You can see what the other Ladies in the Challenge Group came up with. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope that there will be more stamping in my future this weekend...Toodles! :D
