Rock ON!

Hello, hello! I have finally photographed my Sweet Sunday card - whew! I apologize for not getting this up for you all before this moment - that's pretty lame when the challenge hostess doesn't have her act together, eh? LOL!  You can see the challenge post HERE.

Yesterday was my rock star husband's birthday.  I won't tell you how OLD he is, but you may be able to figure it out, hehe!  Poor guy had to travel for business on his big day, but thankfully, this is a short trip.  When he's gone, I am lost - seriously.  He is the cook, the grocery shopper, he reads the kids their bedtime stories and pretty much is the most hands-on dad ever.  So when it's time to make dinner, I grab the bachelor dinners - you know, chicken nuggets, Spaghetti-O's, fish sticks.  Yeah.  The kids just roll their eyes and laugh.  Last night it was pizza, so they liked that.  Score one for mom!

Anyway, to show him that he pretty much rocks, I made him a birthday card with Masculine Graphic Tee Die & Stamp Set.  The card base is Black Licorice Card Stock and I layered it with some A Boy's Life 6x6 papers from Echo Park.  I stamped the bolt in Memento Cantaloupe ink and then stamped Rock On over the top of it in Brilliance Graphite Black.  The age pennant award banner is made with the new Accent It Flags & Tags Die-namics and then I added the By the Numbers Die-namics.

Be sure to check out the sketch and all the Sweet Sunday Stampers' samples for SSSC170.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
