Masculine Monday

Hmm… masculine Monday. Could this be the start of something? It might be. Either that or it sounds good for tonight. LOL. What a Card_Jan 2011As you can see, I used some paper scraps that were on my desk from yesterday’s project. I used stamps I bought last year but hadn’t gotten around to using yet (shame on me), which means my card meets the criteria for PIO#1 – this week’s “Brand Spankin’ New” theme on the Pile It On blog.

There isn’t much to say about the card construction.  I like the sentiment. The inside of the card holds a birthday greeting.

Materials & Tools: Black and Stampin’ Up Crumb Cake cardstock; Graphic 45 Shutter Speed from the Communiqué Collection; Black Tim Holtz/Ranger Antique Linen Distressing Ink ink pads;  Mint Motif What a Card and I’ve Got Your Number stamp sets; Black Bigger Brads; EK Success corner rounder; Sponge distressing tool.

A Slice of Life: This is going to be a tough week with a lot going on at work in the way of stuff to do and feelings to be sorted out. After making a difficult decision a few years ago, Husband told me I was the most resilient person he has ever known. I was younger then. Change was easier to accept. Still, thinking way back, I remember how fearful I was when encountering something new. Unless I am worried about someone I care about, there isn’t much that frightens me anymore.

Enough of the serious stuff. It will all be good. A week from now, I will be telling you how I spent my day either at home or out and about having had some fun – maybe both!

How was your day? I hope your week got off to a great start. If you want to pity me, it’s COLD here at -10° F. If you want to envy me, sweet Husband, who put all of the Christmas decorations up, took them all down and put them away today – a job I was dreading. Sweet guy.

Finally, thanks for your comments on my posts. They mean the world to me.

P.S. Husband just caught sight of my card and is impressed – a rare occasion. He informed me, however, that while my choice of numbers/suits was good, the worst cards one can be dealt in poker are a seven and a two of different suits. I will retain that information for future reference. LOL.

Good guy card. Like the sentiment.

At 10 below I do feel sorry for you. We used see temps like that but haven't in a lot of years.

What a great guy card, I have eyed those stamps!

Such a fabulous card! I hope it warms up!

Terrific guy card, Kathi. The colors are super. And as I know next to nothing about Poker, I wouldn't have a clue about good or bad hands. LOL I just know this card is a winner.

Good luck to you as you navigate this next week, almost your last right, in your old job. I look forward to seeing how your new job works out.

Brrrr you are cold. Even with our recent arctic cold snap, we didn't get below zero, during the day! Stay warm!!

What a magnificent card. And I do like the idea of masculine Monday.

Good luck with your last week of work in your current position. I know that you are a very strong and resilient person.

Oh, and stay warm. -10 F does not sound pleasant. Although, we're not too much above that unfortunately.

I really love this card. The colors, design, all of it.
