i like choices - don't you?


i bought this stamp a while ago - and natch - i haven't used it yet. (it was screaming to me - "use me" so i finally relented). I was in need of more cards for the coffee shop so I figured why not give this one a try. The card I came up with looks somewhat masculine - dontcha think? I may even make another for one of the boys (husband and son) birthdays this week.
The stamp in Inkadinkadoo. I used Ancient Page Ink to stamp the image on a piece of white cardstock I'd aged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink (yes, it was Antique Linen... my favorite). I used the Distress Ink again, here and there on the patterned paper and edges. And yes, that's more of that Basic Grey patterned paper (i really think they should bring back that line -Vagabond - great masculine lookin' paper), some brown grosgrain ribbon and one of those circle clips.
Lately, I seem to forget to mention movies and shows we've been renting or watching. But this weekend we rented the 2nd and 3rd DVD's of Weeds - Season 3. I absolutely love that program. It's not for everyone (and def not for the kids) but we are amused here. Ok... enough for tonite. I think I'll have a few more things to post over the next couple o'days. talk to you soon!

Totally cute, yet masculine. Love the cool stamp too...so versatile and fun! Hmmm, never watched Weeds. May need to check it out. I also heard The Tudors was very good too, so I am thinking of renting the previous seasons (cuz there certainly isn't anything worth watchin on TV these days).

These cards are so cool. As for the choices...I think I like choices, but I'm so prone to the being very comfortable with the same thing that i never choose something else. There are some restaraunts where i have never had anything other than what i always get. drives some people crazy that and my eating one thing at a time.
