as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Good Time Blues

Taylored Expressions #17

Well, I have discovered that my light box is in dire need of my attention.  Yet, until I tear myself away from crafting long enough to spruce it up, I will have to photograph my posts in an alternative method.  This could mean switching my entire schedule around as I never finish a card in time to photograph it in daylight!  Until THAT time presents itself, my posts will include some type of colorful background so my cards won't fade into the light.

Now, on to business at hand.  A card truly for any occasion, but I have deemed it a Father's Day card.  I bought my first small set of Tim Holtz stamps several weeks ago and have been trying to find the right card/event to use them.  Only tonight, I only used one of them! :)

I've missed playing at the Play Date Cafe for several weeks.  It seems my schedule never quite allowed me to play along in time until this week.  In fact, another post I have was suppose to be for last week's Play Date, but graduation and visitors took precedence. This week they have some wonderful colors fit for masculine cards just in time for Father's Day.  And, I used the sketch from Taylored Expressions and also will enter in Stampin Royalty's challenge to make a masculine card.

Stamps:  Man - Tim Holtz; Sentiment - Hampton Arts; 'Fireworks' - Hampton Art minis.
Paper:  White and black cardstock.  DP from my stash.
Ink:  Staz On Jet Black; Royal Blue Ink It Up! from Nicole Crafts.
Extras:  Decorative black ribbon; black and blue brads; glitter glue, decorative scissors.
