It's Friday, and I'm ready for the weekend! It sounds like it's going to be a rainy one here in NW Wisconsin, so that means I should get some good crafty time getting inky in my craft room. Yeah!
I have one card to share with you today. It has a bit of a story with it. My husband got a new Harley this summer -- his second. He's had a few minor issues with it. The most recent was not being able to get the gas cap off. It broke on the bike and just went round and round. Could be a problem! Fortunately, he still had enough gas to motor to the Harley shop, get it repaired and make it to a gas station. After they so quickly fixed his bike for him, he asked me to make a thank you card for the awesome Harley mechanics. So I did:
This was a free (!) stamp set I got from Unity a few weeks ago during one of their sales called Tribal Trend. I stamped the border stamped several times with 2 different, yet blending inks (Close To My Heart Sunset and Sorbet). I cut up some 1 inch squares and glued them on the face of the card, alternating the border pattern of arrows. I thought the arrows worked well for a bunch of motor heads. The sentiment is stamped in CTMH Barn Red ink -- the same color as the panel behind the squares.
My husband said. "No bling!". I told him, "those mechanics probably have studs in places we haven't even thought of!" So, I had to add just a little, subtle bling. they didn't seem to mind.
Make sure you check out all the awesome inspiration from the Friends With Flair linky party. I love spending time visiting all the blogs during some point in my weekend. There is SOOO much talent in this Unity community!
