You've Got This {Avery Elle} (and giveaway winner!!!)

Hello friends! First things first, as promised, the winner of a crafty goodie bag! Patti, at Stationery Styles, come on downnnnnn! You won, girly! Please email me at TomatoL at aol dot com and I will get your goodies out to you!

I really appreciate the time that many of you took to share your thoughts with me about blog posts and supply lists and such. The majority of you prefer supply lists at the end of the post (it was pretty down the middle as far as linked photo preferences.) I've discovered that to use Inlinkz with affiliate links, you have to have the paid version . . .so I'm holding off on that for now!

And now, onward to a card!
I created this card in particular for someone special. I needed a masculine card to encourage my pal who is on a major life-changing journey. I used Avery Elle's Brushed stamp set. The font is so nice on this, and brushstroke fonts are soooo very trendy right now! Keeping it simple helps a card maintain it's guy-friendliness, so I just rounded the corners and called it a day. This layout would be perfect to duplicate in a variety of color combos and sentiments. I always love simple, striking cards that are easy to mass-produce. (Because simple and striking does not always mean EASY.)
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll be back on June 1st to celebrate a new release from The Stamps of Life! Woohoo! :)  xoxo
