Happy Birthday, Man!

Hello Stamping Friends,
     Well, my last stamp camp is now in the books and its time to get back to stamping again for my blog.  :)  I checked out all of my challenge blogs this week and found three to combine for this new card.  
 I followed the
CAS (Clean and Simple) birthday challenge, Create With Connie and Mary sketch challenge, and 
Paper Players masculine challenge. 

Stamping Supplies:
Stamps: Blue Ribbon
Ink:  Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit
Paper:  Early Esspresso, Sarhara Sand, Island Indigo, 
*SoHo Subway 
Pretties:  Linen Thread
Accessories:  Woodgrain embossing folder, sponges, 2 3/8 scallop circle punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, stampin' dimensionals
*new product

On a personal note:  It's been a very emotional and challenging week here in Oklahoma City and the metro area.  Tornadoes ripping through our state on Sunday and Monday changed many lives and left in it's wake, piles of debris and much sadness.....BUT, Oklahomans are a very unique group of people; resilient and hopeful.  If you think of those who have been affected by these tornadoes, please pray for them and for all of us as we serve and give in anyway we can to bring about healing and rebuilding.
God Bless,
