Good Luck

Hi All!

Just a quick post today as I will be losing my Internet connection shortly while we have another service installed. I hate to be without the Internet, but it will be well worth it after we have a better and faster connection. Hope you all have a great day! I hope to be back tomorrow with a new card for the Stamp Something challenge. Please forgive me for not blogging much today, I'll be back soon!

I made this card last night, not for any particular reason other to use this Baseball Connor stamp now available at Whimsy. I also paired the image with some new BasicGrey Marrakech papers. These are the perfect colors and patterns for more masculine cards.

The image was colored with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. The cardstock colors are SU! Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango and Night of Navy. The accents are some wide grosgrain ribbon, eyelets, a star brad, and a metal clip to hold the sentiment which is also available at Whimsy Stamps. I chose "good luck" because this an important week for our friends and I wanted them to know we are keeping our fingers crossed! Wishing all the good luck we can! :)

Thanks for popping over today, enjoy the rest of your day. I hope to have some blog hopping fun later today. Happy Stamping! :)
