F4A132, WAW43 & SSIC155 ~ Birthday Blessings

Happy, happy Labor Day to you!  Hoping you are having a nice LONG weekend!  Things are a little rainy here but that allows me to focus on my house. 

Thank you to everyone who has kept my Mom in your prayers!  She is doing well and is able to spend more time on her own.  It will be at least 4-6 more weeks of zero weight on her foot.  She seems to be getting stronger each and every day!  What a blessing!

So this weekend, I am attending to some badly needed household chores and even some crafting!  Funny thing happened on the way to my craft table...  everything was just so MESSY!!!  So in the process, I had to move furniture and reorganize.  Whew!  Didn't know I was in for that!  lol...  Hubs says when I get in these moods to look out!!!  ;-)

Today I have a birthday card to share using a couple of ODBD sets.


I stamped the new ODBD set, Keep Climbing on kraft twice with Memento ink. I then matted the image with black, brown and another layer of black card stock. I selected a sentiment from the Happy Birthday collection. A few Kaisercraft pearls (black) finish it off. Very simple and a nice masculine card to add to my collection!

Thanks for stopping in and until next time... blessings...

Lori - This is such a beautiful card! Love how you matted the image several times. It gives it such a "rich" look. Sounds like your mom has been through a rough time. Will add her to my prayer list. Thanks for joining us at SSiC this week.
Blessings,
Michelle
