One last xmas card and today's candy addition

This is the card I made for my dh for xmas. The map paper is from Christina Renee from a paper kit called Out to Sea which is ON SALE right now for only $1.75! She has some wonderful designs there and I highly recommend her store and her blog.

My dh is an avid sailor and I like to use sailing and boating images on the cards I make for him. This one is from Winds of Grace. The card base is Always Artichoke and the sentiment is embossed with copper ep.

Now for today's addition to the blog candy! This is a block of patterned paper from Stampin' Up! and it is a hostess benefit in the current catalog so it can't be purchased. You will get it along with all the rest of the candy if you are the lucky winner drawn on Friday, January 2. Just leave me a comment on this post. I will be posting new candy each day until the 2nd, so come back tomorrow and get another chance to win.

I can't tell you how much the words of encouragement mean to me. This blog has become a true source of joy for me and I thank you all for coming and visiting, staying awhile and letting me know that you've been here.

Thanks!

I love that card. I am always looking for masculine cards and this one is just right!

I love how that paper looks "old". Like a worn map. Very neat.

Thanks for making a card that is masculine looking. I always have a hard time thinking of something to send a man for their birthday.
