Back from sabbatical...

...isn't that what they call it when you just happen to take a year off? A YEAR??? How did that even happen?

It's not like I haven't been crafty in over a year...I've just been too selfish (read lazy) to share.

You know how it takes sooooooooo much time to take a picture, edit it, have to look up everything you've used? Now I'm starting to sound like my 9-year old when I ask her to clean up her room.

Well, here we are...2012 (no this ISN'T a resolution), I'm still alive and ready to share once again if anyone's still "listening"...

Since I'm always stumped by masculine cards, I challenged myself to make one using some of my new Sale-a-Bration goodies. I'm also challenging myself to use up some of the designer paper I've (ahem) collected over the years - I'd love to be able to put my feet under my desk in the near future :)

Stamp sets: Sprinkled Expressions (Stampin' Up! SAB 2012), Stampin' Up!s Best Dad Ever (sentiment)
Ink: Versamark, Black Craft (Stampin' Up!)
Paper: Stampin' Up! Basic Black, SU! Whisper White, DCWV Natural stack, core'dinations Pearls in Auburn Pearl
Accessories: copper embossing powder (Inkadinkadoo), Stampin' Up! copper brads, Framelits Labels Collection die (Sizzix for Stampin' Up!)

Well, that wasn't so hard after all...
