What a wonderful day of stampin' I had ~ as it poured outside, I played and prayed for friends and family members. My heart goes out to a dear friend who had to say goodbye to her sweet cat Pumpkin! Praying for you LeAnne.

As I sat at my desk, I decided that I would do my best to use up the scraps that were gazing at me....all over my desk I scooted a clear spot and got to work ~ (does anyone else ever do that) ~ I was actually surprised as my card came together. My focus was on the challenge at Play Date Cafe and the sketch from Freshly Made!

After I had finished my card and began my post, I realized that my colour choice was not close to the picture ~ what I was actually focused on was 
Azure ... Raspberry ... Blackberry
and I thought my colours were close to this ~ sorry girls, I hope this is okay! I guess I don't know my colours very well!

I had stamped this vintage car stamp ages ago, seriously, probably a year ago and there is sat with idle wheels...and now it's put together! I find it really hard to create a masculine card....So here's my card for my darling husband ~ he loves everything water/boating/fishing and also anything that has wheels ~ so this card was perfect for him ~ now if I'll only remember come January, that Dean's card has already been created ~ this is a great cerebral workout ~

Thank you so much for stopping by today ~ I hope I have inspired you somewhat ~ if you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to drop me a line! Enjoy your day!
