Hey everyone! It has been so long since I have posted, but I have a few things I have been working on that will be coming up, including a box, totally made from scratch, to hold your reinkers, sticklers, and alcohol inks!!! Stay tuned.

For this week’s Simon Says Stamp, Simon wants to see something “Manly!” So here is my card for this week. It includes Tim Holtz die cuts (gears) and his paper line, lost and found (the old photos of the men), plus a few other nice extras like the new clocks and watches from Jolee’s! The golden gear is 7 gypseys. I really like how this came together! I also added some string around the buttons and some “remember” fabric to add another little touch. Let me know what you think!

    Awesome manly card! I also love those Lost & Found pix from Tim Holtz – and gears are always a great addition for a manly feel. Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show!
