A Guy Thing

Fashionable Stamping challenged us to Make It a Guy Thing, which I don't do often enough. I adore my hubby who loves to build old cars as eveidenced by the 34 Ford in our attached garage and the beginnings of a T-Bucket waiting to fill his new garage. He definitely needs to put a heater in his new garage so he can enjoy his hobby year round. I made this card with him in mind, using the sketch from the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge #113.


I was disappointed that there was a small piece of lint on the "H" so that it didn't stamp well, but it sort of looks like it belongs on my shabby card and I know a man who will never know the difference - hel'll only be looking at the car!

5.5" square card:
Paper - Graphic45 "Playtimes Past;" Close To My Heart Kraft, Colonial White, Outdoor Denim CS
Stamps - CTMH "Happy Birthday," Vintage Father's Day (both retired)
Ink - CTMH Desert Sand, Black, Outdoor Denim, Cranberry
Other -  CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy (circles), Lucky Level Two Assortment (chipboard stars)

This is a great "guy" card- Your car stamp caught my eye immediately over at SCS. Great job stamping "outside the box".
