Dude, You Rock

We spent last week in Boston with my husband's family for the Thanksgiving holiday which was a lot of fun and very relaxing for me since I am the one who usually does the cooking every year. Before we left, you may recall that my husband was hanging shelves in my craft room for me which caused all kinds of chaos and I am still organizing! (I promise I'll post pics Carla...when it's presentable.) Anyway, this card is for Richard as a thank you for all the hard work it took to put up the shelves (I won't mention all the expletives). He did a fantastic job and everything is level!

My card uses a digi stamp and I wish I could tell you whose it is but I downloaded it before I started keeping track of where I was getting them. I colored it with copics and used nestabilities to cut out the image. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder on Black CTMH cardstock for the background and then sanded until the music notes came through with the white core. The sentiment is from PTI's Signature Greetings and the stamped music notes are from CTMH's April Word Puzzle. I didn't go heavy on the embellishments since this was a "guy" card and I have to say Hubby loved it.

This card also manages to qualify for a very special sketch challenge issued by a budding crafter who is showing some awesome talent. The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree in this instance. That's Amy's sketch above and she happens to be my friend Sarah's daughter. I am so happy I got to play along!

Well, things are going to get really hectic around here with Christmas cards to make, shopping to do and tons of baking so I may not post as often as I would like but I hope you'll still check in.


  1. Hey there, glad you had a nice relaxing visit in Boston. Missed you. Your card rocks. I have to get back in the scraproom. A lady I work with asked me to make her Secret Santa gifts. I am not going to charge her what they are worth, but am hoping I will get some business out of it.

  2. This is precious - although guys wouldn't say that! They'd just probably say "cool". Great card!

  3. When I saw this I just laughed out loud I loved it so much...then I showed Amy and she did the same thing!!! LOL. Wonderful Cibele..thanks for playing.

  4. That little bird is hilarious!! LOVE IT!!

  5. Glad you had a relaxing Thanksgiving...your card really rocks! What a great hubby to help you with the shelves (expletives and all)I know you appreciate him.Missed popping in latelt so wanted to stop by and say Hello!

  6. I love that bird!!! This card is so funky and fresh! Beth
