Shhhhh...can you hear that??!??'s Q-U-I-E-T here! NO KIDS!! Now, don't get me wrong, I totally *heart* my kids :o) but a day off of school and the whole house to MYSELF is such a treat these days hahaha...both kids are at friends houses for the day and so I will do some laundry up and create - either in my craft room or I'll work on some afghan projects I need to complete...or BOTH! HA!

Scrapmaster's Paradise has a very "masculine" color challenge this week so I decided to make a birthday card for a good friend of ours. I had to find a sketch to go along with it, so I hopped on over to Friday Sketchers.

This is the sketch challenge from Friday Sketchers Challenge Blog. I knew I wanted to use Lovely as A Tree as my main image (my good 'ol manly standby stamp set lol)....

...and this is what I came up with.....hope you like it. I'm not too sure about the pearls on there, but I guess they are on there now :) Hope he enjoys them too HA HA HAHA...:o)

Paper: Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Basic Grey, Naturals Ivory
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Sizzix embossing plate, sizzix dots embossing folder, grey satin ribbon, paper piercer, dimensionals, oval punches, scallop oval punch, scallop edge punch, spiral note punch, dimensions, adhesive pearls
