An upcoming swap calls for a masculine card and I am not all that fond of them. I don't have a lot of masculine type stamps... no deer or rifles or trucks. (Kidding... I know that doesn't describe all men BUT,) when you look at examples many of them have those elements. Lisa Babitz gets my prize for masculine cads. I love the way she puts them together and when I grow up... I want to be like her. :)
So... Tim Holtz is a man and I like his Distress Inks... therefore, this is a masculine card? Hmmmmm?!
There are a lot of stamp companies involved in this one... some I can't even tell you. The car is Melanie Sage, the bird Tim Holtz. The numbers are Thursday or Friday something and the Happy Birthday & stars, Simon Says Stamp. All the different phrase stamps have been collected here and there through my loooonnnng stamping life.
All in all I had fun with this one. I am still in a lot of pain from my shoulder. The doc will not give me an MRI so I guess it doesn't matter why I am in pain... I have adhesive capsillitus which basically is frozen shoulder. (according to the doctor who will not do an MRI and is clearly looking thru a crystal ball) Grr! I am doing the exercises at home right now, religiously, even though I have an order for therapy, because it is so painful... I just cannot bear one more stretch from my therapist. I really do my exercises though and hope that within the next couple of weeks I can get it back to where it was before my second graceful incident which made my arm worse. As long as I can make some cards here and there... I am happy!
Thanks for stopping by!
