Sweet 'n Sassy Customer Blog Hop

Hey, Blogger is back on line! Sorry for the delay in posting my card for the SNSS Customer Blog Hop but I think almost everyone in the world knew about the Blogger outage! :-) But now it appears that we're back and working fine so here is my card for this month's blog hop, which is a tribute to the men in our lives.

The challenge for this month's hop is to create a card for the guys and if you want to play along, just visit the stamp blog here for all of the details. Prizes are included!!

My card features a tree image from the Forest Silhouettes stamp set. The silhouette stamp sets that Korin has created are some of my favorites. There's just so much you can do with them! Since this baby got created at about 10pm last night, after working and a class, I wanted to keep it simple! I dry embossed the navy cardstock in the background and simply stamped the tree in navy ink. I added a little sponging to the bottom of the tree so it wasn't floating in the air. Just added a simple greeting and a big 'ol green bow...'cause guys can live with just a small fancy thing, right??

Be sure to hop on over to the SNSS stamp blog to check out the other creations and to join in the hop!

Enjoy!
