Retro Strong Man Birthday

Yes, I had a lazy Sunday morning again! We got back to Long Island around 6:30 last night. I came home for a bit and unpacked and then Michael came over so that we could stop by Brian & Kim’s for Kevin’s Birthday party. My friend Lorren was there and she had asked where Michael lived and he said Brasil. I said that he had grown up in Hicksville and so had Lorren. It turns out that they lived on the same block only a few houses away from one another! Michael knows Lorren’s family and they spent some time catching up on the rest of the neighbors! It really is a small world! We came back to my house and watched some TV before calling it a night. This morning was spent chatting about the scrapbook show and surfing the internet. It’s fast becoming my favorite way to spend a Sunday morning! I have a few pictures that I took from the top of the parking garage in Lancaster. Just really cool buildings and one of me and Michael.

It was little windy, gotta love that hair! LOL!

I needed to play with some of the goodies that I picked up from the Scrapbook show so I used some on today’s card. The base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock and the front is covered in a piece of Basic Black. I used my new Crop-a-dile Corner Chomper to round the corners on the card, background and bottom of the tag. The background is a piece of paper from Fancy Pants called Everyday Circus and it’s adhered to the card with SNAIL. My tag is a piece of Very Vanilla, I used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch for the top and stamped the strong man from the Guy Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black. His pants and shoes are colored in with Copics. The greeting is also from the same set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Real Red and cut out with a die from Dies By Dave. I tied some Hemptique Black Hemp Twine though the top. The cool ViewMaster is a die from Echo Park and is cut out from some more Basic Black and tucked under the tag that’s adhered with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I love the retro feel to the paper, I think that it goes just perfectly with the strong man! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! ūüôā
