The next challenge was to use some of those new stamps that you haven't used yet, I have a few in that category and since I needed another masculine card for my Nephew, who I think turned 30 this year, I went with a stamp I bought this past summer at the stamp show. Our Daily bread design is selling Artisitc Outpost stamps and this set just caught my eye. I sponged distress inks on the background to give it a sunset look and then stamped the image and embossed w/black embossing powder. When I was doing the background I accidently dropped my sponge applicator on my background up where I wanted to add the blue next, I was hoping my stamping would cover it up but no such luck so I ended up adding a bird flying upwards to cover the yellow, you can still see a little of it peeking out from the bird.

Distress inks -- Tumbled glass, scattered straw, wild honey, rusty hinge, tea dye and Hickory smoke around the edges of the card

We didn't get as much rain as I was hoping yesterday, but was able to get out and walk so that's a good thing, the temps were just perfect. I have not checked yet about the hurricane coming up from Mexico they are saying this is the worse in our history, hope there were not any deaths. If you are in the line of the storm I am praying for everyone's safety. We are suppose to get a couple inches of rain from it on Tuesday so if we are getting that much I can only imagine what those that live closer are getting.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
