Thinking of You, Son

I am very fortunate to see my DS most every weekend. He works so hard at his regular job, but then operates his recording studio on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Phew! It is an understatement to say our house rocks on the weekends. The latest band he has been working with, does jazz, New Orleans style. I loved it! I understand that this Saturday, It is an older fellow who does Sinatra and he was given a gift of a day in the studio! Anyway, I had him on my mind this week, more than usual, because he sent a resume for a great job opportunity. Have my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed that he will be called for an interview!


As the guest designer, for Theresa Momber's new stamp set called Gone Fishing, I have been trying to show how versatile it is. It will make wonderful Father's Day cards, but it will also make great cards and projects for everyday occasions. I have used this stand of trees before, but I think I am loving it just stamped simply and not colored. The set is available from Gina K. Designs, and can be found here. I must say that the "thinking of you today" sentiment is from another one of Theresa's sets called, Life Is Good.


I stamped and sponged my image on Pure Luxury, pure white card stock with Soft Suede ink by SU. It was cut out with a labels nine Nestabilites die. My card base is kraft PL and my dp is digital. I created my top border with some blue grosgrain ribbon and a new MS embossing border punch I just bought. My chipboard letters were pre-distressed an are made by Lil Davis Designs.


Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are having a great day so far!

Neat card -- I really do like that dp. You and Olga both need to enter your cards in the Flourishes challenge for a "manly card". You could win all their newly released stamps. I think tomorrow is the last day.
