As promised, I wanted to stop by and share my Stamp Something card with you. It is a little late, I had been working on this card Wednesday evening when my old pup started collapsing and had to be rushed to the emergency clinic. He was diagnosed with Geriatric Vestibular Disorder which basically presents with all of the same symptoms that one would have with a stroke, the most severe being that he would fall down when he tried to walk. Scared me I tell you. I am happy to say that today he is much better and while it will still be a bit before he has all his strength back he was able to manage a walk around the park today.
Anyway, back to my card. the theme this week at Stamp Something is
As I had recently purchased a new around the page punch I was happy to have a reason to put it to use.
Our sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy and with so many summer and male card challenges out there this week I have opted to use my favorite mouse Henry. As he is dressed in a great Hawaiian shirt I just had to pair him with some of the new Basic Grey Lauderdale papers and coloured him with Copics to match.
The layout is based on this weeks sketch from Create4Fun.
I have used an additional punch to mat the vertical strip and I have also used some Magnolia Doohickey dies for the leaves of my flowers which are from Prima. With the addition of a couple of ticket stamps from Whimsy, this card is now perfect for the next male Birthday.
I hope that you will join us on with your own punched creations for our challenge this week. Be sure to stop by the Stamp Something challenge blog and see the gorgeous cards that my new teamies have created to inspire you.
