I have a lot of guy cards that I make between September and October for family members. This one went out to my great nephew that is playing football.

The images are stickers and I made the frame by taping two dies together and cutting them at the same time.  The background was done using Distress Oxide inks, I added a bit of water to the background, that gave me those spots.

NRN Designs -- stickers
Distress Oxide inks -- Walnut stain, peeled paint, fossilized amber
Distress ink- Walnut stain for shading around the edge
Spellbinders A2 Distressed edges for frame

Prayers continue to go out to all those effected by the shootings in Las Vegas, it is so hard to understand these senseless attacks.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and taking the time out to let me know you have,

You've always got the right stuff for the guy cards. I sure struggle with those. Gosh, those water droplets show up beautifully. Now I want to play with water droplets. Your background has a beautiful glow.
