Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week has started off okay.  I ran some errands with Mallory yesterday and then watched movies the rest of the day.  Both of us are anxiously watching for Mr. Brown  . . . we took advantage of some of the sales and ordered movies online we couldn’t find in the stores.  We’re antsy to say the least!

One of the things I want to do better with this coming year is actually  sending/mailing all the cards I make.  I know, I know!  Mallory tells me all the time how can you not send cards . . .  that’s what you do!    So in hopes of being better, I went through my calendars and marked all the birthdays of family, sorority sisters, friends, etc., trying to stay on top of it all.

My brothers birthday is New Years Eve and believe it or not . . . I made him a card today and I’ll get it in the mail before I stop or it will never make it.


He’s a golfer and I wanted something masculine and golfy.  I picked up my Graphic45 A Proper Gentleman and luckily I still had some of the golf images left in the paper.  I picked one, mounted it on illustration board and then inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.   Its placed on a layer of ovals die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ S4-138 Petite Ovals – Large and S4-139 Petite Scalloped Ovals – Large.  I needed a border, but not so froo-froo, so I settled on S4-243 Ric Rak Diamond Borderabilities® Petites and layered some twill and twine on top.

I hope he likes the card . . .  I don’t think I’ve sent him one in many, many, many years.  Hell, I’ve just started to talk to him again after a few years.  Long story . . . sibling thing!  See, I really am trying to better about it all!

I hope you have a great day . . . me, I’ll be in the studio working.  It feels good after my short break!

  1. Good idea to mail the cards. I send a lot of mine to the Nursing Home Ladies. My sister is a nurse practioner and takes them along to give to the ladies so they can give cards of thanks for the little things people do for them. I mail some, but not many…..I don’t know why…..I think i’m just lazy and I hate spending the extra postage. Your idea for your brother is genius…..Love the colors on the card. Well done!

  2. Love, love, love this,Sherry!!! So nice… Would be perfect for my own bro…
    Great job on this one, girlie!

    Hugs, Ree.

  3. Wait…..do I see a slight halo above Bad Sherry’s shiny little horns?!!
    Mailing cards…..hmmmmm what a concept. I’ll have to give that some thought!!
    I need to remember that the images on DP can be used as a focal point…

  4. What a great way to start off his New YEAR with a cool card from his sis!!
    Like how you did the layering, neat papers!

  5. What a great guy card – and I just picked up the Proper Gentleman card pack today – my local stamp store was have a 25% off everything sale. This is just the inspiration I needed to get started.
