Second Week Birthday Wahoo!!!

Wow, the two week mark as a blogger!! Who would have ever those of you who have been at it for a way longer time...hip hip hooray for you!!!  This is no little deal!  I am proud of myself, and big pats on the back to you too. I want to say a big big thank you to Jessi who has been such a huge help to me in figuring out some of the ins and outs of blogging, someone I didn't know reached out to me because I was making some blog faux paux.  Jessi is a gem for sure, and not the kind we put on our cards!  When we are new we need all the help we can get so thank you Jessi, and to anyone else who might reach out to someone in need, thank you, thank you , T'HANK YOU!!!

My card today is another version of the Thank You card I made yesterday.  My hubby had asked me to make a couple of cards for some friends of his, so I made two cards, then he informed me he needed three cards, so I went to my scraps from the other two cards and came up with this one.  I made envelopes for the other two cards with the gray striped paper, and liked the way the contrast looked with the stripes going different ways.  The other papers were all just scraps from yesterdays card, and the stamp is from Inkadoodle which I bought at Walmart.  The little bow, which is my favorite part is a small piece of raffia.  I inked all the papers to give that added accent.

I hope you enjoy this card.  I love how it looks so masculine.  Sometimes it is hard to get a male looking card. I will have to keep this idea in my back pocket!
