Little More than an Hour to Win ...

First I want to say that there is only a little more than an hour to enter for a chance to win, and so far there is only one commenter, so she pretty much has it in the BAG! :)  Check out THIS POST for a chance to win My Memories Suite v3 free to create awesome digital scrapbook pages, blog themes, banners, desktop backgrounds, calendars and more.  GREAT software for creating handmade gifts for family with digital photos you have saved, etc.

Speaking of gifts for family, my Dad's birthday was today, but we are celebrating it tomorrow.  I sat down and made him a card tonight after some inspiration from pinterest.  There sure are a lot of masculine cards using stars, and I just love stars! :)  My Dad is a fairly patriotic guy and loves eagles, so I think this will fit the bill.  Honestly, I wanted to distress the edges, tear them a bit and make it look more rustic, but he's a straight, precise, always on the level kinda guy, so I think clean lines and straight edges would be better appreciated by HIM anyway.  lol

Card Details:   the paper is from Bo Bunny's Liberty collection with some stars and circles punched out from a separate page from this collection as well.  The "man ribbon" and twine were in my stash as well as the peace charm, which were added to the layers of Bo Bunny and creamy caramel cs before it was attached to a chocolate chip card base.  I love using creamy caramel and chocolate chip from Stampin Up.  The inside has a folded sheet of regular typing paper adhered to the flap for the birthday sentiment to be written on.


Let me know what you think ...
