The Simple Things.......

Hello everyone: As always, I hope you and your families are doing well, keeping each other healthy and safe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I don't create Masculine cards often, and that is a big mistake because I have a hubby, brothers, brothers in law, good neighbors, and, last but not least, a couple of handsome grandsons.

So, here's this card that could be perfect for any of them.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is the inside.



And this is what I used.

Stampin' Up! "Apron Builder" die set.

Stampin' Up! "Gorgeous Grunge", for the floor.

I just love, love these little utensils, the apron and accessories are just adorable too.

I want to play with the following challenges.

As You Like It Challenge 

"Feminine or Masculine" and why?


Your Next Stamp "Anything Goes"

Creative Knockouts #459 "Outside Fun" 



Thank you for stopping by today and for your comments, they always make my day.

Until next time, stay healthy and safe.
