Hi Ladies! It looks like my entire weekend will be spent inside, out of the furnace we have outdoors. The good news: I get some time to craft!!!!  I needed a birthday card this week, so I am sharing a masculine card using the Mojo Monday sketch.


The striped panel was painted with Distress Crackle Paint – Rock Candy and then distressed with Distress Stains.  I used the Tim Holtz Steampunk Border die for the horizontal panel, a Stampers Best Steampunk gears stamp, and then Tim Holtz Sprocket Gears as the final embellies. 

I had to get this in the mail quickly and then come back and post it when I could get some time.  It is for my mechanic’s (shhh that is my son!!!!) birthday which is July 5th. Not being sure how long it will take the Army to deliver it, I wanted to get it in the mail early. Hopefully he will have it for his birthday. I wouldn’t want him to think we forgot!!!! So I guess since it is going to my specific hero instead of OWH AnyHero, I’ll call it MyHero card Open-mouthed smile

OK. Happy crafting today. See you again soon!

I also made this card for:
Mynnette’s Spread the L-O-V-E challenge:

*Operation Write Home: Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.

Dear Ellen -- thank you for the fantastic idea for a card. I needed and idea for my brother and wanted to incorporate a Chevelle stamp I have. The Tim Holtz gears and the gear stamp were a perfect idea. Thanks for the inspiration! I won't be able to post the card until after July 20th but I will give you credit.
