Trendy sketch

Another My Time sketch (32) and a double challenge to make it a birthday card in honor of Lauren's birthday. I used SU!'s Trendy Trees and Define your life. I struggle with masculine cards, it's so hard to keep it simple. Don't get me wrong, I love clean and simple, but I LOVE bows so much :) I always like to add a bow, unfortunately a bow on a man card is just all wrong. I went with just little bits of ribbon and a button (if I can't do a bow, then I have to use a button!!!) I also did some sponging around the edges. I think I'll make a couple more of these to keep on hand for the special men in our lives, maybe changing the definition stamp to "Always", "xoxo" or "Because". Great cards to have around just in case.

Oh, Ethan loves his new desk organizer. We have been spending sooo much time stamping and coloring. I got another 2 cards made today. That's pretty good for a weekday.

More later! Happy Monday!
