Friday Feature with Raisin Boat.... on Sunday

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday to you.  So far the weekend has been pretty good, I'm just not ready for it to end.  Good thing there is still a day ahead of me to work in my craft corner.

I know I usually feature Raisin Boat on Friday, but today is the day for the new monthly challenge to be revealed!  So I couldn't sneak peek it, I had to wait.  This month's challenge is...

Birthday!

Fun right?! So many options.  Not just birthday cards, but any birthday project you can imagine.  Just use those Raisin Boat stamps.  Don't have any? Well then it's time for you to start your trial membership for just $5.99 for TWO sets of stamps.  Bobbi and Kim are fast shippers, too.  So you'll have plenty of time to select your stamps, get them in your mailbox and play with us!


My card is Clean and Simple - but I love the results.  And the timing of this challenge couldn't have been more perfect.  My friend's son just turned 13 and he asked me to make card.  I made this, so manly and so grown-up!  The card features Bloom and Stunning Silhouettes stamp sets.  I will need to learn how to capture the richness of the Coffee Bean card stock better, but the card is so pretty.

Please, head on over to the Rasin Boat Blog to play along with us.  How to and link up is all there, plus amazing designs by the other Crew Members!  See you there.

Supplies:
Stamps:  Bloom, Stunning Silhouettes
Ink:  Rich Cocoa, Desert Sand
Card stock:  Ivory Coast, Coffee Bean, Bear Cub, Mud Pie

What is it about cattails that are so masculine? AND NOW I'M LOOKING AT THEM. Never mind. (Shakes head) maybe that's what it is. Anyway, they've always seemed like a go-to guy image for me :) Love the layout you used!
