Back to Reality

Today is my BIL's 60th Birthday. We celebrated last night with some cake and ice-cream at our cottage.
Here is the card I made him.
I used 4 different stamps to make this card.
 The faux stamp is popped up with foam tape.
I am not overly excited with how this card turned out. Actually I don't think I even like it, lol.
But he just throws them away after, so no biggie.
 Remember last week when I cleaned up my scrap room.
This is what I found :)
Well not HAD a chocolate bar in it when I found it, lol.
 I had wondered where it went. I had thought one of the girls (or more like Hubby) had found it and claimed it as their own.
 This was my view most of the day today.
We came home from camp and went straight to the "Pit".
Heather had to grease the trucks.
Hubby was excited to go on his bulldozer.
And I did some of my book work.
Yes that is 2 cans of pop you see there. I was in there working for about 8 hours.
At least I had air conditioning, they didn't.
I have a very busy week. I sure hope I get everything completed.
I am going for a girls weekend with my friend, Debbie, next Monday. We do this every year. I think we have been doing this for the last 10 years.

Hope your Monday was a creative one.



  1. I'm shocked you didn't color on your card! Lol! Glad you made it back safe. I hope you get everything done this week too so you can enjoy this weekend :)

  2. I like the look of the card! I'm a fan of the antique post card look:)
    I think I will be making a tutorial on that rose. It turned out so pretty and there are so many tips that would have been useful to know while i was making it. I've never made a tutorial so I hope it turns out ok:)

  3. Hey I love the card! How can anyone not like anything you make? You've got talent, girl! :-)

  4. Oh, yummy Aero bars. Can't get those in the States!!!!!

  5. I was kinda surprised that you didn't like the card, I thought it was awesome!

    Never heard of that candy bar, so it's obviously not in the states.

    I'm NOT a fan of doing bookwork, so I commend you for being so good at getting yours done, but I know the bills don't paid of you don't.

  6. I like the card! So cool. Peppermint and chocolate are one of my fav combos. Never heard of that candy bar though.

  7. I like the card. It's very manly. For some reason it is really hard to do masculine things.

    I don't know about the chocolate bar. Would I be more upset about them being in my scrap space or eating my chocolate? Hmmm

    Hope you finish your bookwork quickly so you can get back to your amazing crafting!

  8. Love the vinage look of your card; I have a hard time creating a masculine card. Never heard of an Aero bar, but glad you found it!

  9. I think it's a great card, Tracy.

  10. I love the vintage look and feel you created on this card! Great job! :)

    Girl getaways are the best -- have a great time!

  11. I love that card and I would gladly receive it and not throw it away!

  12. Your brother's card is fab, I love the stamps you used.
    Hope you get your bookwork up to date, don't work too hard.
    Happy crafting
    Tracy x

  13. Hi Tracy, what an amazing card it. You did FABULOUS! ~Shen

  14. Your card looks just fine! I have to laugh, though....I cringe at the thought of people throwing away cards I pour so much effort into...but heck, I guess they can't keep


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
