It's a Guy Thing

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Happy weekend to you all!  Here is a card I made using Avery Elle Surf's Up stamp set and Kaiser Craft Blue Bay Designer paper.  I needed a simple masculine birthday card for a class and so here we are...

I've used Ranger's Antique Linen Distress Ink around the pattern paper and sentiment. I've stamped with Archival Jet Black ink and fussy cut the VW van (we used to have a VW van when I was in grade school!).  The embossing folder is from Provocraft.
I will enter this card in the following challenges:
 Simon Stays Wednesday Challenge (It's a Guy Thing)
Word Art Wednesday (Anything Goes)
Cardz 4 Guyz (Birthday Card)
Seize the Birthday (Anything Goes birthday)

I will be working tomorrow at the lss for a co-worker who is sick so I'd best get busy around here and get my Saturday stuff done this evening.  Thanks for looking!!

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.  Matthew 5:6

My Wednesday morning ladies Bible study started a new study called "Sermon on the Mount" by Jen Wilkin.  Just after one week I am enjoying and challenged by it. We started on the Beatitudes this week and it's such a blessing to dig deeper into God's Word!
