How I roll

For my Great nephew turning 17, Yes I have great nephews that are older than my nephew, that is what happens when you have a large family.

When I saw this set of papers I thought they would make some great guy cards.  My nephew is living in Michigan so the license plate was perfect :)  I cut out these words and used dimensional adhesive on those and the plate.

Recollections -- Awesome Boy paper
Kraft Cardstock
Distress ink -- Walnut stain
Mark Richards -- Mosaic tiles (corners)

We had our Christmas with our daughter and son in law and my favorite gift would have to be a cross-stitched book mark she did for me.  Over the years when she was younger she tried all the different crafts I was into and did some drawing like her Dad, but she never really liked any of them, but last summer she started cross-stitching again, she didn't say anything to me because she wanted our gifts to be a surprise and it was, so neat that we can share this love of crafting together.  We went out last night and bought some floss and fabric so that she can start on a big project for herself, I can't wait to see it all finished!

Hope you all enjoyed a relaxing weekend!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

You're right, the papers are fabulous for masculine cards! How perfect to have the Michigan license plate on it! Your daughter's gift from the heart is very special. It's wonderful to be able to share crafting with someone you love.

What a perfect card for your nephew--love your use of the printed paper! So special to have crafting in common with your granddaughter. I need to finish up a cross stitch I started before I got into cardmaking.
