Fab Friday 167

Hey, peeps, happy Wednesday!  Just a quick card for you today using the Fab Friday sketch for this week:

Nice and simple, perfect for what I needed...a fast card for an architect friend's birthday!  I dragged out some really old Basic Grey papers that had sort of an urban grunge feel, and pieced them together for my front panels:

I used a sentiment from a really versatile Unity stamp set called For the Guys, stamping it in Early Espresso and diecutting it with a MFT Stitched Sentiment Strip die:

To make the right vertical element a little easier, I diecut the Hello Honey card with a die from the retired Sweetly Stitched only embosses, doesn't cut, and it made this cool design:

Finally, a couple more sentiments from the same Unity set on the inside...I just love the fonts in this sentiment!  Thanks for popping in today!

The day we went to the farm to get eggs, we also stopped at the calf barn, where the farmer has at least thirty cats (at least that's how many I could count at the time!):

No mice on that farm!  Cassidy wanted one of the calves to lick her hand....and it did, LOL!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Your card is perfect for an architect. Well done, my friend. Ooh, cows, kitties and no mice is a perfect day. Farms are so much fun but so much work!

Wowzers, this card is awesome, LeAnne! I'm sure your architect friend is going to love this! So many fun details in the papers and the stitching on the side! I also love the colors! Perfect for a guy card! The pictures from the farm are so cute! I don't think i've ever seen so many cats in one place! LOL Enjoy your day and stay cool! :)

I sure do miss Basic Grey... they did have such wonderful prints, right? You've used these at the perfect time for that architect friend, LeAnne! Such a handsome card!
Ask Miss C. if she noticed the calf's eyelashes!!!

Fun colors and papers! They seem perfect for an architect! I like how you embossed the zigzag along the edge in lieu of the scallops...great geometric detail fitting with the paper. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
