Happy Thursday! Well, I’ve had plenty of coffee this morning, and am getting ready to hit the road to run some errands. I’m a little pressed for time this morning and was going to get rather sappy today. Today is my dad’s birthday. If he were still with us, he would be 82. I’ll be back a little later to let you in on that part of my life. But right now, I do have a card to share in honor of Dad’s everywhere!

The Splitcoast Ways to Use It Challenge today is to make a masculine card. For those of you who have visited the Rubbernecker Booth at the various shows have seen this card. I just haven’t shared it here yet.


The image was colored with Copic Markers and the edges were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The designer paper used for the background was distressed first, and then the edges sponged with Vintage Photo.


  • Stamps: Boots and Sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamp Company
  • Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; BasicGrey Aged & Confused Vagabond; Blue
  • Ink: Ranger Adirondack Pitch Black, Archival Jet Black and Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink
  • Accessories: Copic Markers; Black Twine; Brads; Mounting Tape; Tonic Tim Holtz Distress Tool

I hope you have a good morning, and when time allows this afternoon I’ll be back.
