Blast From the Past May Hop

Hi guys. Long time, no blog. To be perfectly honest, my family has been through hell this past month. But we need a little normalcy, so I'm going to try to get back to blogging and card making. Thank goodness for my dear friend, Ashley (HeartHugs Designs), who pretty much held my hand while I took baby steps in figuring out how to make a card all over again.

Since the theme of this hop is masculine cards and the spousal unit's birthday is coming up next week, I decided to make him a card from all of the kids. I used the birthday sentiment from Pet's Place. I kept it super simple, using Sketch #69 from OWH Stars & Stamps in shades of blue. The dp is Basic Grey Granola.Thanks for stopping by and thank you again for all of your support this past month.

It's good to see you posting again! I'm sure the "spousal unit" will be pleased with it - very suitable for a guy (or a female "clean and simple" fan like me).

It is a fantastic card and the colors are perfect. And I completely agree that it's time to get back to "normal" (although the kids will tell you that is boring).

Thank you,
TSU
