This is Our Daily Bread Designs Sketch #4.  You can find the sketch and other inspiration Here .  If you play along you can have a chance to win a certificate towards their stamps :)

I needed a card for my Niece's husband and I liked this sentiment to go with this image for a birthday card.  It would be a great one for an encouragement card too!

ODBD-- Keep Climbing stamp for image and sentiment, colored with markers
Spellbinders -- Classic Circle Lg and Labels Four dies
Fiskars -- Upper Crest border punch
Ki, Hampton art -- Adhesive metal accents
Basic Grey-- Basics Kraft paper pad
Cuttlebug -- Forest Branches embossing folder, I inked the folder before embossing

It is still so HOT here, our temperature gauge has been reading in the 100's for the past few days, yesterday we had to get out and do some errands and we did them quickly and just came back home, can't take the humidity with the heat, just too much.  Hope you are staying cool were you are.

Wishing you all a Terrific weekend,
Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate the comments,

You're so right about how perfect the image and sentiment are together! Super guy card! Love that woodgrain background. I can't handle the heat and humidity anymore. We visited our son in the valley over the weekend and I couldn't wait to get home to the coast.
