A Man's View



Check out this new set from Flourishes! It's called A Man's View and it'll be in the Stamper's Dream store as of tonight at 10 p.m. CST!

As soon as I saw it, I wanted it because my DH, dad, father-in-law, brother....well, they all LOVE their "fat chairs"...hee! Remember on Friends and that episode when Chandler and Joey sat down and simultaneously timed reclining their feet and letting out a big "Ohhhhhhhh!" Cracked me up because I've seen both my dad and my husband do this, LOL! I made this card for my dad...now I just have to decide if I'm going to give it to him for father's day, for his birthday, or just send it to him as some surprise happy mail.

Here's a close-up of the metallic papers I used on my card. I won a pack of these gorgeous papers from Melanie Meunchinger. They're from the Paper Temptress...and they're awesome! The colors I used on the card are Lagoon and Bronze. Thank you Patricia and Melanie!!



Both Bronze metallic panels are up on foam tape. A second recliner was colored, cut out, and popped up on foam tape too. The layout is Taylor's TECC sketch from last Friday.
