U Rock!

You do, you really, really do. ;o)

Today's card is a fun boy card that my oldest, Hunter, helped me pick out the colors for. Green is his favorite color, so I was not surprised when he picked it.

I used Design Basics: Backgrounds I to stamp a single strip in black first on the card base. Then I took a 1.5" strip of black cardstock and stamped a single row on it with Versamark and embossed using Detail White embossing powder. To add a little something without get too frilly, I used the single star from Kisses & Cuddles and randomly added some stars to the green panel. Some chipboard alphas, and a pop of red buttons and I'd say "Done".

Super simple and Hunter gave it a thumbs up. Hope you are having a great weekend. I'm off to spend some time with the boys. We are going to try to get the boat out for some tubing and maybe some fishing. Fun!
