Manly Mondays

It's my friend Cal's birthday today.  Happy Birthday Cal!!  He's the type of friend that you don't see very often but know that he will always be there when you need him. 

The balloons are from a napkin leftover from Frankii's birthday party in March which I thought went well with Tempting Turquoise, an under used color.  I applied it to white card stock with 3M Spray Mount and smoothed it out with the tips of my fingers.  Once dry, which only takes a few minutes, it was cut to size and adhered with Sticky Strip to the Tempting Turquoise base.  The sentiment is from the Level 1 Hostess Set, Afterthoughts.  The part you can't read says (call when it's time for cake.) That was stamped with Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink on Confetti White. This layer and the Tempting Turquoise layer was ran through the Big Shot with a square scalloped Nestabilities. The Confetti White is popped up with Dimensionals.  On the inside I added a piece of Confetti White.  A bright card for a very Happy Go Lucky Fella!


Frankii is super happy to have all the snow out of his backyard.  He's back to walking the perimeter of the chain link fence which is about a half acre a couple of times a day.  The crow is back and Frankii lets him know that he is not happy about it by trying to chase it away. Doesn't work but at least he's getting exercise.

I was going through some pictures of Frankii and just had to share this one with you.
This was taken at our house in the City a few days after we got him. Look how white he is! He was 5 months old when this picture was taken.  He's so much darker now.  It's a hot summer day and he's relaxing in the shade. Something sure has his attention.  Probably our old neighbor yelling at her kids again.  Sure don't miss that. 

A La Prochaine!

I sure like the napkin technique it is always a quick fix to a card & looks wonderful.

I am sure Frankii does not like his baby pic being shown. LOL

That napkin made a perfect card! Love it! I, too, love that technique, but I haven't used it in a while.

And look at our baby, Frankii!!! He's beautiful!!!

Julie I tend to agree with you. Tempting turquoise does not get used enough and this napkin is the perfect embellishment to accent it with this card. It is adorable and a great idea.

What a great photo of Frankii. He is such a handsome little fellow isn't he. I miss him when I don't get to see him on your weekly post.

Another wonderful card and great idea. Take care and keep up the good work.
