Hello! Well, I am home sick today, so I decided to stamp a little to help the time pass. I also found out this morning that my husband leaves going back overseas military) on November 18th. Yet ANOTHER Thanksgiving and Christmas away from home. Ugh,that just made this day even worse. Since 9/11, he has been away during the holidays for 6 of those and it definitely wears you down. He hasn't spent a Thanksgiving in our new house yet and won't this year. Ok, but enough about that...although, it did influence to today's card.
The card was made using Mercy Kerin's Tuesday Sketch challenge for this week. In addition to the sketch, the challenge called for us to make a long card - something I have never attempted. Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on it....
I flipped the sketch on it's side and decided to make this a more masculine card so that I could use it for my first time participating in the Corrosive Challenge Blog this week. The challenge was to make a masculine card. I hope this qualifies! :) I thought the sentiment was good for today,too, because it IS easy to hold down the helm when hubby is home, but when he is away...well, let's just say that that is when things can and do go haywire.
Well, that's it for me today. I still haven't made that twins baby card, but I am still thinking..lol. Have a great day!
