Hello, my lovely blogging friends! I hope your week has been going well. Yesterday did not go well at all for me health-wise, but today has been peachy!
I have a lawyer friend turning 65 and made him this card. The minute I saw the QKR Stampede digi called Weighing a while back I snatched it up for this card. I ran across the gorgeous American Traditional Designs patterned papers I used quite by accident. I was at a loss as to what papers to use, so I grabbed my "A" paper file holding my 12x12 papers alphabetically by mfr. And there they were. ATD's A Guy's Life collection, from 2005. Ha! 😜😎😊

13. A Place to Start August 2021 #8: What's Your Style? -- #1/8 Well, I am eclectic and have many favorites depending on the project and my mood, but I've used one here that I use a LOT: Clean and Layered, using a sketch, collection patterned papers plus stamping (and a little ink-blending for a bonus). Also, I guess since so many people remark about me decorating my card backs and/or insides, that's a definite fave of mine, to cover every surface of the card when I can. Is that a style? I think so. :-)
