Relax. It’s Your Day

It’s already Sunday! Time sure flies when you’re not at work, doesn’t it?
Today’s card is for the SSCC Masculine challenge and this was a really tough one for me…since I never seem to make masculine cards…and I have a feeling…I’m not alone there, right? For this challenge,  I had to put my thinking cap on and after a long, long time a little bit, this is what I came up with. I combined Edwin w/Binoculars and the  Island Hammock digital stamp from Make it Crafty. My Sentiment was computer generated. The leaves for my card came from the Cricut cartridge, Life’s a Beach.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Winking smile
Supplies used:
Grand Calibur

  3. You continue to amaze me with your talent. This card rocks - the MIC background is fab and your Edwin is gorgeous. I haven't used any of my MIC backgrounds or the two new ones I just bought. Monday - all day - I craft!
