Let's Play Tic Tac Tow with Retro Rubber!!

 Hello everyone: As always, I pray and hope you and your families are doing well, taking care of each other and staying healthy and safe.

The RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE has a new Tic Tac Toe grid for you to play with.

I chose the first row going vertical, Masculine, Embossing and Stripes.

Here's my card, which I created for my hubby for his 67th. Birthday💕
coming up in August.


This is the INSIDE.

And this is what I used.

The image is from Art Impressions, I got it on eBay about a month ago but I think it came out back in 2013 according to some research on Pinterest.
I used a diagonal stripe embossing folder for my background panel.
The sentiment in the front is from Concord & 9th., "Happy Day (2016)
I stamped the cute golfer image on a piece of white card stock and colored it with Prismacolor pencils, then fussy cut it.  I placed a piece of painter's tape behind the golf club to make it a bit more sturdy as I cut it.
The sentiment inside is from Power Poppy's "Short Stacks" (2015)
I punched the "golf ball" with a 1.25 circle punch and embossed it with a dot embossing folder, I'm very happy it looks so real, 👍

My teammates and I over at RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE hope you will come and play along with us in our gallery. Don't forget to stop by the challenge to get more inspiration from my awesome teammates.

I apologize for the comment section being so far below, I just don't know why this happened, I've tried to fix it but I can't.

One Of My Favorite Bugs!!!!!

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


My teammates and I over at shopping our stash have a new theme for you to play with and it's all about bugs!!

My favorite bug is the spider, I have a lot of respect and admiration for this critters and, even if I don't want them inside my house, I never kill them, I trap them with a glass and a piece of cardstock and take them outside to my flower pots, I figure they will have a better chance to find food out there than in here.

Anywho, here is my card and believe me, I used every single spider stamp I own, this was so much fun and, since spiders seem to be associated with Halloween, I made this card using this cute little mummy, who is not to thrilled about all of these spiders showing up at the same time, I hope he's going to get a glass and some cardstock to trap them and take them outside, Lol!!

This is the inside.

This is what I used.

The mummy is from Stampabilities (2006, discontinued)
