Masculine Monday: A Hairy Situation

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a good weekend!  DH made it home safely from his weeklong business trip to Canada on Saturday, so all is well!  It’s during times when he’s away that I find myself admiring single mothers!  A lot.  It’s not that I feel so overwhelmed, but I just feel rather exhausted by the end of the week!  Evenings become a little too quiet after the boys are tucked in and I really start missing conversations with the love of my life!

Ever since last week’s “Furry” cue word challenge over at CASology, I’ve been thinking about mustaches and the lack of them in my stamp collection!  While paying Hobby Lobby a visit on Friday, I found a cute little background stamp that made me smile!  Not only was it too cute to pass up, but it was half off!  Can’t beat that now, can you?!

Unfortunately, my ability to get a good stamped image is not very good with background stamps (…a little fact I conveniently forgot in that moment of retail therapy excitement.), so you’ll have to excuse the unintended weathered look that I achieved.  As if that wasn’t enough, the fresh breeze coming in the kitchen window the evening after I finished the card blew my hard work into a pan soaking in the sink and I quickly became the proud owner of a bunch of water logged mustaches!  Guess Mother Nature must know I really don’t like the things in real life.  sigh.  No need to worry about any prospective recipient noticing the faults of my creation!  Whew.  Funny how things work out, isn’t it?!  ‘Course, here I am sharing this with all of you, the stamping experts…

Stamps:  Stampabilities, Paper Trey (sentiment, Pond Life)
Paper:  SU cardstock (Basic Black), Paper Trey cardstock (white)
Ink:  SU (Basic Black)
Accessories:  foam dots, heart gemstones, red Copic marker

I framed the poorly stamped images with some black cardstock and popped up the layered panels with foam dots after stamping the sentiment.  The heart gemstone is actually a clear one colored with a Copic Marker.

It’s back to the drawing board to create another Father’s Day card!  One down (see here).  Two to go!

    Aren't mustaches just fun?! I can think of several guys who would love getting this card for FD. Great card, as always, Melissa!

    Why did this make me laugh? I guess I could see your face when I looked at this — you have a great imagination!!!
