Manly Mondays - 1 Year Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to Manly Mondays!  Yup, it's already been a year.  Who knew this would last a year and beyond.  It's been a blast and your comments and encouragement have kept it going.

A Thank You card seemed fitting for today.  I've had a napkin Spray Mounted to a piece of Brushed Gold floating around in the craft room for awhile now.  It was intended for a particular project that has long been abandoned.  Looking at it yesterday the inspiration came to make this card.

Using one of the upcoming In Colors - Island Indigo - and a stamp from the Thanks Kindly set this card came together really quickly.  The Thanks is embossed in gold and punched out using the 2 3/8 Scallop Circle and a hand held punch.  Quick but effective in conveying appreciation to your Manly Man.


Frankii boy has been a little busy this past week. Busy burying his bone under my pillows that is.  It's Saturday morning which means fresh linen on the bed.  The pillows are fluffed and arranged, bedroom is straightened up, vacuumed and dusted.  Off we go to do other things.  Frankii is suffering from Cabin Fever since it is raining yet again.  Wanting to keep him busy I gave him one of his favorite bones.  Off he goes to his house (kennel) to have a good chew, or so I thought, and off I go to do other housework.  A few minutes later I notice he is not in his house which is where he is suppose to be when eating his large treats.  I hear sounds coming from the bedroom and think "what the heck..."  There he was, burying his bone under my pillow.

Does this look not have GUILTY written all over it.  Why Frankii Why under the pillow??? He then proceeded to bury it in the couch after much effort of getting the throw out of the way.  Ughh!  It's been one of those weeks although entertaining.  Mr. Summer it's time for you to make an appearance, PLEASE!!

A La Prochaine!

Happy Anniversary, Manly Mondays! Love your napkin card! Don't you feel good when you find an abandoned piece and are able to turn it into a work of art? And Frankii . . . oh my! I suppose he wanted a clean, fluffy place for his special burial site. That's a great picture of him with a look of, "Aren't you supposed to be somewhere else?"

Hi Julie and Happy Anniversary to Manly Monday's. Your cards and projects always inspire me and I really look forward to seeing them. I love this card and have always wanted to create a card with a napkin but have never tried it. Again, you have given me a push to try something new. I just love it.

Also that little pumpkin, Frankii, is adorable. He does look very guilty as a matter of fact. Almost like he just thinks that he might get away with it. I think he is a hoot.

Have a great week and I look forward to all your creations. Thank you so much for the past year I appreciate everything you have posted... you really have helped me out that is for sure. Take care and again Happy Anniversary!
