Flying Hi

I have not forgotten my promise to share a masculine card on Mondays.  I promise!  This week and last, my plate of Life has been filled a bit more with the bare essentials and lacking a bit in dessert (a.k.a. crafty endeavors)!  I’m okay with it, though, because that’s just life…sometimes I’d rather have my plate full of dessert, but that’s not exactly healthy.  Balance and moderation!  I know I savor the little extras a lot more when they aren’t as readily available!

Stamps:  Lawn Fawn
Paper:  SU CS (Bashful Blue), Paper Trey CS (white)
Ink:  SU (Basic  Black)
Accessories:  SU embossing folder, gemstone heart, red Copic marker, foam dots

We have paper airplanes flying around the house like you wouldn’t believe these days!  I remember the days when I joined my three brothers in such play except I had this tendency to make my own paper airplanes look pretty!  I probably spent more time decorating them than I did actually flying them!

For this card, I embossed the main white panel and layered it on top of some light blue.  I then stamped and fussy cut the paper airplane, popping it up with a foam dot for dimension.  The sentiment and flight path were stamped in black right on the main panel.  I added the heart gemstone after coloring it with a red Copic marker.  Another card for DH!

Today was a nice spring day with temperatures finally reaching into the upper 60’s!  I’m hoping the next few days will prompt the bare trees to start getting serious about leafing out!  I am so ready for green leaves!  Some of the neighbors have mowed their lawns for the first time and I have a feeling this coming weekend we may finally do the same!  Is there anything quite like the smell of freshly mowed grass?!

I hope you have a marvelous Monday!
