Contractor birthday

My sister in laws significant other is a contractor so when I found this stamped image that one of the girls in my cardmaking group shared with me many years ago, I thought it would be perfect for him. I believe it is an old Stamping bella stamp.


Spellbinders -- Lg. Deckled Rectangles die
Memory Box - Gearworks border die cut from DCWV - metallic paper
Hot off the press -- Ivory papers and tag
Our Daily Bread design -- Mini tag sentiments stamp
Bazzill basics - brad

I hope your week is off to a good start, I am getting excited my brother and sister in law are coming from Michigan for a visit. I may get behind on visiting your blogs but I will catch up sooner or later :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie

a great card, Connie! It would be appropriate for my husband, too, as he does all the projects around the house - a regular handy man! I especially like the metallic finishes on the gears. Have a great week! hugs, de

Indeed it is a Stamping Bella stamp. I have a beer drinking man from S.B. Your card is very nice and will be so appreciated. When I don't make my son cards he is so sad. Family come to expect handmade cards so you're good--LOL.
