Seems summer has ended....4 days, and poof. Today we are back to marine layer and 64 degrees. The extended forecast calls for 73 degrees with AM clouds/PM sun, which means heavy marine layer all morning. Phooey. This is May weather, not nearly August weather. What's goin' on?! I fear for us in the fall...that we'll have temps in the 90s with hot, dry air blowing all the dust around. Perhaps I can take a trip back east in the fall...maybe see some leaves...anyone got a spare room?

Ok, enough of that fussing! Here is my sketch and card for Christian Paper Crafts Sketch Tuesday. I like this sketch, but you can see from my card that I sorta cheated.

In my defense, I've been under some stress...ok, yeah, that's it...stress... But I pulled out my new Basic Grey Oliver paper and used it, which made me feel a tiny bit better. So cute!

I think this makes a good boy card. The stamp is Stampin' Up. I also used Spellbinders Nestabilities inverted scallop circle die. That's one I don't use much, but it's kind of cool to use for boy/man cards instead of the scallop circle.

Wednesday and Thursday I will have Graphic45 reveals. Then I'll not be around much for a few days. I will schedule some posts for you, but my Cyber Pal, Rose, is coming to visit and we'll be too busy having fun to care about blog land! {wink}

    Have fun during your visit with Rose. Can't wait to hear all about it.
