HB2U!

Hello, summer!
 (images from Pinterest)
Aren't these photos inspiring?
Moxie Fab World has a few new birthday challenges. The birthday card is one of them. I was inspired by beaches at the Hamptons!
My attempt of a rustic masculine card.
HB2U
Card stock: White by American Crafts, Turquoise by Michael’s
Stamps: Tech Talk by CAs-ual Fridays Stamps, Woodgrain Background by Hero Arts 
Inks: Adirondack Acrylic Paint (Snow Cap) by Ranger, (Navy, Cup o’ Joe) Mid Tone Ink by Hero Arts
Accessories: brads by Making Memories, jute from Michael’s 

The special issue Birthday Creations is out at the stores now. Lucky for me that I have one card in this pub. AND it's a masculine card! I have yet to get a hold of this issue! If you have a copy, can you please look my name up and tell me the page number?  Thanks!
Enjoy your weekend! Thanks for stopping by!  

PS: I had newly inserted the Pinterest button in my blog. Hopefully this will make my blog more Pinterest-friendly, all you need to do is hover over the left top corner (pin it button) and you can add the pins from there.

Love it Virginia, the woodgrain is perfect on this paint and such a trendy sentiment. Wanted to 'pin' it but it doesn't seem to be working-when I hover over it I just get a messsage that says 'Virginia on Flickr'??? Let me know when you get chance x
