A Card for F-U-N?!? Whoop! Whoop!

 Hello again, crafty PEEPS! I get the privilege to spend time in my craft room today - without DT obligations or deadlines!!! WAHOOOO...a card for fun! I haven't had one of those for quite some time. My good friend, Tamie, is cyber crafting with me via video chat on Yahoo Messenger - it's a lot of fun and we get to help each other out with ideas/tips/suggestions :)

I have been scoping out some new-to-me challenge sites and I came across Sketchy Fridays Challenge Blog - LOVE IT!!! Here's this week's sketch:

and here is my creation...I took the liberty of not putting the sentiment on the bottom, as I had stamped up top on the circle ;) The overall sketch layout is very visible so I'm sure the girls won't mind *wink, wink*

For my card, I used a mixture of papers from the uber cute, masculine EP Note To Self paper pad, and stamped #1 SON from MFT stamp set, Masculine Graphic Tee & Stamp Set in Early Espresso, added some ribbon and some pearls...and, WA-LAAA!! Done-did!

I'd like to also enter my card into the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Masculine
Paper Playtime - Use Some Brown
Fresh Brewed - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog - Ribbon
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Spots & Stripes

Thanks again, Tamie, for all the fun this afternoon!! :) HUGS!!!
