Hey blog friends! I can't wait to share a card I got a little rough and tumble with in honor of the daddies and inspired by the Just Us Girls sketch87 and the OTWC54 colors!
As the title of this post indicates, I did in fact challenge my inner tough guy + mister fix-it with a little sentimental mixed in (the clocks and the passage of time as a daddy of two girls makes my hubs a wee bit sentimental at times *sniff*). Starting with a distressed piece of scrap cardboard as my base was
just the ticket on this card.
A couple of whacks with a screw driver toughens up these once shiny silver brads and a piece of stained vintage measuring tape reminds us to stand up and be counted. And this card may even have a bit of a BBQ smell to it since I *might* have taken a flame to the cardboard..... kind of a scratch and sniff sticker effect! ;)
Oh my! All that texture makes me swoon-y! ...just like my guy still makes my heart go pitty pat when I see him in the role of "dad" with our girls and the opportunities we've had to share a glance over their heads as we hold onto this parenthood world by it's wild, crazy and wonderful tail!
Speaking of wonderful, be sure and check out all the fabulous sketch challenge cards from the Just Us Girls team.
