I cannot believe life sometimes...

I just can't believe life sometimes!  I've been feeling like I've got NO time and yet I was able to stamp today!!!  AND my house is 1/2 way to being completely organized!!!  Our recycle bin and trash bin are almost full and we could have a fabulous garage sale.  It's fabulous!

Also, I received a freebie stamp from Stamper's Best with an order I placed a while back and I didn't know what to do with it...it is a stamp of Abraham Lincoln.  Well, much to my surprise, as I was going through a bunch of old sets to see which to sell, I found one that had a Lincoln quote in it!!!  HOORAY!  PLUS, I just got an amazing texture stamp set today that I wanted to play with, too!  So I did. ;)

Here's what I made with my stamps~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~



(I chose warm.)

I've used a stamped image by Stamper's Best, texture stamps by Bo Bunny, glitter by Studio G, rhinestones from my stash, and all other supplies used are by Stampin' Up!.

Thanks so much for stopping by to look at my creation!  This is going to be framed and given as a gift to my brother who just got his first "grown up" job and has moved out on his own!  I hope you join in the fun at these fabulous challenges!  HUGS and happy stamping!

Mynnette I'm sure your brother will love the sentiment you have used on your fab card. I think the colour combo you've used is just great for a male card. Thanks for playing at the Male Room's first challenge, and hope you can join us again soon. Bev :)
