"When you come upon your cat, deep in meditation, staring thoughtfully at something that you can't see, just remember that your cat is, in fact, running the universe."
------------ Bonnie Elizabeth Hall
I have been busy making cards and finally have some time to post some of them. I was super-inspired by the MFP Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge of making a Masculine card with Navy Blue. So I have made a number of them to enter. This one uses the big wintertime stamp from the MFP What a Fox stamp set I won from them. (THANKS, MFP!) Do you see the fox on the hunt in the image?
I rarely make strictly masculine cards, but these were really fun because I got to focus on using a big stamp and trying out textures with the color twist. For this one, I pulled out some thrift store red twine and matted my focal panel with red over the navy card base. The simple design helps keep the beautiful scenery stamp at center stage. I rounded the lower corners to add just a hint of interest.
Ding.....ding....ding!!! New Follower Introduction Time!!!
Actually, today I am reintroducing Brandie Partello. I had mentioned her recently as a new follower, but my Grandma-brain (poor old thing!) had failed to make the connection with her and her blog: Just a Piece of Me. Top on her blog right now are some gorgeous autumn cards. One of them looks for all the world like leather! Beautiful work. Thanks, Brandie, for your support and encouragement by becoming a follower. Here's another ginormous smile for you!!
