Nearly 25 Years of Treading The Boards...




I am trying to lift my game in regards to posting my cards a little more frequently.  But really, I need to lift my game, more to the point, in terms of card making period (full stop for my Aussie comrades).  I have been in the slow lane when it comes to crafty mojo, that is for sure.  Luckily, when I saw this fortnight's CR84FN Color Challenge, it most certainly whet my whistle in wanting to give papercrafting a go.  I do adore the colors Aqua, Tan, and Cream when combined. Yum. 

So my masculine card for my husband's 25th anniversary of being a part of a particular acting fraternity came together rather effortlessly due to my fondness for the current color combo, which was a tremendous relief judging from my markedly decreased crafting energy levels.  Oh, if you're wondering why the title of this post starts with the word "nearly" is because, as it turned out, the fellas had only been acting together for just on 24 years. LOL  I guess, to my poor love, it must have seemed like a quarter century...of fun of course. *wink*  Incredibly nice to say that, that's this card done then.

Thanks so very much for stopping by.  Your visits are appreciated so.  Have a beautiful day!

What a wonderful card, and so inspiring. I looked at the color combo and was so intimidated by it--couldn't see how to make it work. But, you did it with style, girl--more power to you. And, happy anniv to your DH.

That is truly a awesome card - complete with hardware to really bring home the masculine theme. I had to look closely to realize this was mostly PTI images. Very nice work!
