365 Cards - #110 My Guy

Today over at 365 Cards the challenge was to make a masculine card and use the Argyle pattern. I saw that I and I thought "BINGO" I have an embossing folder with the Argyle pattern I am set and so my card came together very easily after that. I did have a little trouble choosing a designer paper to suit my colours in cardstock but then I went to my DCWV Naturals stack and there it was just waiting for me to come along and pluck it out of the stack. . .the trendy trees and in just the colours I wanted. Don't you love it when a plan comes together!!! My stamped image is another one from my ancient stash but I have always loved it. I also have a moon emage that goes with this boat and when done as a scene it looks great but that is for another time perhaps.

Well cannot wait to check out what everyone else has done for their card for todays challenge. I am hitting the bed a little earlier tonight as I did not go to bed last night until 3.30am and then got up at 7.30am so my eyes are hanging out of my head lol. I will be focussing on putting a journal together tomorrow with lots of dividers, pockets, transparencies etc and other embellishments so I can have a sample ready for my market stall on Sunday to advertise jounal classes commencing. I have this huge idea in my head which I need to get out and put it to bed lol as it is consuming to much of my thoughts. I get so excited when I have a really good idea and cannot wait to put it together. Is anyone else like that? Okay I'm going now.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Michelle, Great card I forgot about that argyle embossing folder. Be careful sometimes those ideas in your head can get you in trouble.
