Vintage Birthday and an Announcement!

Happy Thursday to you! I wanted to share a card I created for my dad this past Monday for his birthday. I struggle with masculine cards. It's kind of like buying men clothes.....something you have to do, but not always real exciting. I had this golfer in my collection for awhile, and since my dad is a golfer, I decided to use it! I used a "tweed" background stamp from SU! first and then stamped my golfer on top of it with Momento Ink. The edges were distressed a bit. I used vintage book paper and Graphic 45. I paired it up with some buttons and twine to finish it off. I was pretty pleased with the end result! (And I think dad liked it too!)

For my announcement.....(No I am not expecting! LOL) JustRite is hosting their MEGA FONT HOP!!! There will be 54 talented designers showcasing all the things you can do with FONTS! It will be split between today and tomorrow. (I will be showing mine tomorrow!) In addition to you will receive 30% off all JR Font sets and the Horizontal or Vertical wood stamps, if you purchase them from Sept. 17-24th.

Make sure you visit the JR Blog to start. If you leave comments on the designer's blogs you may be entered to win some fabulous blog candy. I say "may" because it is a hidden blog candy.....even the designers don't know about it! But as usual, JR is VERY generous with their giveaways! So you don't want to miss your chance to win!
OK, sales pitch over (LOL!) ....... I need to get my rear in gear and head off to work! : )
