A Classic Sketch...........

First of all, so sorry about the yucky picture.

Ron is having a meeting in the kitchen where I always take my pictures so I am "stuck" in the computer room which is where I had to take this photograph, on a magazine, in front of my little drawers full of beads. Yes, I have beads in my office. Is that wrong I wonder.......

It is dark and rainy and gloomy here today so the picture is not very bright and those men just keep rambling on about John Deere and fenders.....ho hum.

This is for today's sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.

I used Cornish Heritage Farms, Bel Air stamp with the sentiment being from "You're a Classic" ....perfect for the men in your lives!!

My card base is Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate.

The background is the Cornish Heritage Farms License Plates stamped in Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream ink on Papertrey Ink Kraft Cardstock. Then I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Bronze Glimmer Mist to give it a bit of sparkle. Difficult to see in the picture but dang pretty IRL!

Like I said, it is rainy and gloomy here today so I think I w
ill try to stay in my stamp room, if I can ever get out of this computer room, that is. Honestly, men babble on more than women and I really feel like I am trapped in here....

You are probably wondering why I don't just leave the computer room, say hello to the nice men and go on my merry way. It has to do with my still being in my housecoat and my hair looking like I worked on it all night.......if you get my drift......sometimes I need a talking!!

Come back later, say five-ish, to see my Papertrey Blog Hop card!!
