Simple Joys

I had forgotten to post this earlier, I usually don't take pictures of my husbands cards until after I have given them to him or he will either see them on the camera or on the computer ahead of time, sometimes I get them done just in the nick of time also, since his birthday is in December I had forgotten all about it with the rush of Christmas coming and trying to get Christmas cards made.

I liked being able to combine the dies with the stamped image on this one.


Northwoods -- Hammock stamp, colored w/markers
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basics A die
Impression Obsession -- Cattails dies
Hot off the press -- tiny words & phrases sentiment colored w/markers
Stickles -- Shabby shutters ( on dragonflies wings)
Wink of stella, clear glitter pen on sun and water

I am linking this up with Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration . Stop by and check out all the wonderful blogs.

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know what you think,
Connie

Oh sigh, that looks like the most wonderful thing to do at the moment... taking a nap in a hammock, the soft sounds of the lake and the water against the boat, birds singing in the trees... Beautiful card Connie! I'm sure he was delighted with it :)

Hi Connie, I do admire your cards! each one is a unique little keepsake ~ so much nicer than store-bought ones.
It must be a very satisfying hobby.

Thanks for your sweet visit to me (honeypot-cottage.blogspot). I am glad there's another person out there who has a 'dead slow' gear when it comes to some sewing projects!!
Bless you! I hope we 'meet' again!

Such detail, Connie, and the stance of his body is so real, he looks totally relaxed, enjoying the serenity of his surroundings.
