3/18/2024 - Atlantic Hearts Sketch #569 - Country Bouquets Love You & Miss You

Hi Hi – Welcome back everyone to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch and today I have a masculine heart card for you! When I saw the sketch, I knew I want to use Country Bouquets for this and make a Happy Birthday card for my God-Father in Taiwan. I stamped the 2 step stamping images with Wild Wheat and Lost Lagoon, according to the color listed on the DSP and added a sentiment. In my culture, it is hard to say I love you and I miss you in general so I thought stamping that sentiment is just perfect for let him know. I hope you enjoyed this card I am sharing today and be sure to join us at the challenge.

3/6/2024 - The Male Room #184 Food/Drinks - Share a Milkshake

Welcome to March and our monthly challenge here at The Male Room and we are making Food/Drinks card. I am not sure if my wonderful milkshake is considered a food, but I think it is, right?!

I love the 2 step stamping for the glass, which I used Crumb Cake and Pecan Pie for it. I stamped 3 ice-cream with different colors, they might not represent actual flavors but I though they looked great together! Hope this give you some inspiration and be sure to join us at the challenge, see you there!
