Switching Gears

Having mailed off a box of Mother's Day cards yesterday, it's time to pull out more masculine papers, stamps and doo dads to start making Father's Day cards.  

This Penny Black vintage car stamp is one of my favorites.

Would you believe I stopped at the craft store the other day and walked out with only 4 sheets of paper @ 40% off and 2 pkgs. of green enamel dots that were discounted?  This was one of the papers I purchased.  I thought it had great colors for masculine cards.
The sentiment is a CTMH stamp.  And the Triangle Studs are from CTMH, too.

I used the triple stamping technique, one of my favorites, so I could enter this card in Challenge #33 at The Male Room.  If you've never done it, there are great examples and instructions there.

Other challenges I am entering include: 
Inky Impressions April Challenge - All About the Boys
Bunny Zoe's April Craft Challenge - Traveling/Transport 
613 Avenue Create Challenge # 171 - Anything Goes w/ option of creating a masculine card 

Spaghetti tonight.  Time to get some water boiling.
