Manly?


I hope I made this card manly enough for Allison's Suggestive Sunday Challenge #18. Not only did I create this handsomely cute card with Allison's challenge in mind I also used Korin's Sketch. The sketch is right up my alley! It has lots of straight lines with two rows of three embellishments in it. LOVE IT!

Another thing I love are penguin and when Imaginisce came out with its' "A Shore Thing" collection I just had to have them. I was really amazed to find that the stamp inked up really well and left a super crisp image. Now I got a question for you all. Are these stamps (the Imaginisce Collections) available in your local crafting stores or they only available online? I know it sounds silly but we don't have any local stamping stores here. I get almost everything stamping off the internet or those few times we travel down.



Anyhow, it's been an interesting day. My daughter learned how to climb up onto the windowsill of our living/dining room windows today. Now that she's discovered that she can climb up there she's trying out other areas to climb like the toilet! I am so not happy about this and I am going to have to come up with some creative ways to keep her safe. I gotta give it to her though... she's ambitious and very clever. God bless my little one!
