I hope everyone had a terrific Monday.  I truly didn’t do much of anything and finally ventured into the studio around 4’ish or so.  My morning got away from me, then it was time for the soaps and I have to admit that I fell asleep on the couch for a short nap.

I thought it would be fun today to finish up the all occasion guy cards.  Of course these cards have a theme . . . . automobiles.  We’ve already had the Mustang and the Corvette.  The final in the series is a Ford Thunderbird.  Now here is my dream car!  One I would love to find in an old barn, long forgotten.  Mine would be a ‘55, painted turquoise with a white hardtop.  Oh yeah baby!!

RN Thunderbird

The T-Bird was colored with Copic Markers and Ranger Glossy Accents was used on the headlights and windshield.  I’ve once again used Spellbinders Labels One and Petite Oval Nestabilities to keep with the same sketch I’ve been using.  I think this is my favorite out of the three.

Just for fun, below are the first two in the series.  I’ve called them a series because I’ve used the same sketch for each, only changed the image and paper.

The Corvette

These cards could cover just about any occasion, can be serious or funny and have so many possibilities!

I guess that’s about all for today, since I’m now drawing a blank. Oh these memory lapses  . . . will they never end?  Just say yes, because I won’t remember tomorrow anyway!  Thanks for stopping by.

Wow!  It’s hard to believe that I haven’t been in the studio or made a post since last Wednesday.  So much has been going on around here, that the days have just slipped away.  It all started last Wednesday afternoon when I got a phone call from the sleep clinic.  I had an appointment for today actually, but they had an opening for Wednesday night.  I’ll fill you in more about this later.

Friday was mom’s birthday and all us girls went out to lunch.  It was such a great day and mom loved her card!  Since then, I’ve spent time walking the dogs and watching all the Daytona coverage on television.  Race season has started . . . boogity, boogity, boogity . . . and my favorite driver was the second fastest qualifier.  WOO HOO, Mark!

Today’s card is the second in the series of the all occasion guy cards.

RN Corvette

The corvette was colored with Copic Markers and all edges were sponged with Ranger Vintage Photo.  The panels for the image and the background were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities.  Once again, it’s a guy card so no ribbon . . . I used twine and tied it off with a button.
