A Toast to the Best and Finest Mo....

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Nut

I wanted to try to play along in this month's Crafty Secrets linky party, so made this card in celebration of 'No Shave November' and 'Mo-vember'. their 'Mustache Men' stamp set is by far one of my fave masculine sets. I think I've made quite a few cards with it. although I must say this advertising image sorta reminds me of the Wizard's floating head in 'The Wizard of Oz'..... tee hee! add a little green smoke and mirrors, and voila! :)

anyway, papers are Basic Grey Clippings (how appropriate!), ribbon is May Arts, linen thread is SU!, and the sentiment circle is edged in barn door distress stickles. also used my SU! ink squirty tool.

Going to try to get a bit further into Cath's blog hop today as well as begin the HUGE chore of getting all of my digital items onto an external hard drive. thank goodness for a computer that plays music while I sit here.... I'd go batty bonkers otherwise....

enjoy your day to its fullest! hugs to each and every one of ya! :)

This is a fabulous card. I love the images and the paper you have chosen suits them so well. Great vintage feel achieved with all of the layers and distressing. The die cut frame and buttons are wonderful details. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes/Use twine challenge this fortnight at Craftitude. I hope we see you again soon.
