early morning crafting

This might be a first. I am awake and crafting at 8 am eastern time. There is no scramble, no alarm clock, no reason I can think of that I would be awake a mere 4 hours after going to bed...and wide awake at that.

I scrolled through the challenges I had saved but not played and found three that might play nicely together.

But first the card:
Stamps- Hero Arts S5654, CL342, Inks- SSS High Dive, Hero Arts Soft Pool

I wanted a masculine card to send to my Dad. The sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #218 really caught my eye.  This also was a really simple card to make so I am also submitting it to Casology #179 code word Simple. Lastly it is definitely a masculine card and anything goes at The Male Room #26.  Man cards are often tough for me, but this one works and my Dad will love it.

You can visit the challenges by clicking the written links or the icons above. Now I just might need a little nap!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
