Sitting back and relaxing…

This has been a pretty quiet weekend. My youngest son came down with the flu Friday night, so we couldn’t go to my husband’s family’s birthday get-together (a bunch of them have birthdays within a few weeks of each other) for fear of infecting the senior and baby population among them (moreso than the adults). So, I spent the day yesterday stamping – getting my sister’s Christmas cards done and doing a few challenges (I’ll post those cards separately). I’m just goofing around today too. I really should do something more productive than card-making since my back is starting to ache. This is my submission for last Friday’s Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #92
Here is the sketch:

Here’s my submission:
My hubby was complaining that I don’t have any “guy” cards. I had only recently purchased this set (Boys will be Boys) from Taylored Expressions because I really didn’t have many male-specific stamp sets. I’m glad now to have made one – I’ll probably make a bunch more so when he needs them, my DH can pick what he wants.

The card base is 110 lb. white. I layered some textured black over that. I am using up my scraps of Riding Hood Red (I LOVE that colour and should have stocked up on it last year). I stamped the BBQ and steak with Moment Black Tuxedo ink and coloured them with my copics. I’m just starting out with these wonderful markers, so I think it will take me time to figure out how to shade with them properly. The side panels are grey patterned paper that I’ve had laying in my stash for years. I added a few brads on the corners and punched out the sentiment and layered it. That’s it!
