Almost forgot!

Boy! I guess that the busy-ness finally caught up with me. I almost forgot to make a Father's Day card for my DH!! Perish the thought. For the last 20 Mother's Day, he half-teases me that I'm not his mother, and so, he doesn't need to get me a card or flowers...We differ on that... though in a good-natured way! But just in case I can sway him to my side, I make sure he has at least a card on FD.  Lol.

For today's (at least in this case), 'work of heart', I'm playing along with the fun over at CAS(E) this Sketch. The fabulous Na@Ali created this sketch, and I love its simplicity. My card stuck really close to her sketch. Lots of lovely white space. Pops of color. Fun embellies! This is the Sketch:


And this is my card:


Some drywall tape that I inked with some Colorbox ink, as well as using it to ink up an Avocado Arts stamp, a couple of strips of scraps to encase it, a Dear Lizzy flair button, and some MME enamel dots. All on a Bazzill white card base. And that's the card. Happy dances everyone.

Super fab masculine design, love how you have used the dry wall tape!
Thanks so much for sharing at CAS(E) this Sketch this week!

Oh, he'll love this, especially since you used drywall tape! Manly for sure! Maybe this will be the 'persuade him to your side' card; you most definitely deserve Mother's Day pampering - or perhaps you could proclaim a special "Bev Day" where he totally spoils you (weekly is good...). Love the card, the post - everything! Have a great evening!

Lovin' the look of the drywall tape inked up! Awesome idea. The pop of color from the Dizzy Lizzie (cute) button looks great with the blue! John is going to love this!

My dad used to say the same thing about not buying mom a Mother's Day card...cuz she wasn't his mother...too cute!

Drywall tape?! Get out! That's brilliant! Love the texture that it adds, especially for a masculine card. Super cute, CAS design.
