Guy Time

Today we are taking a break from the book tour to do a little sight seeing...if you can call going to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky a little sight.  With almost 400 miles (yes MILES) of discovered caves and an estimated 400 more left to be discovered (based on air currents), it is the largest cave/cavern system in the world.

Which ties in perfectly with the challenge over at OWH.  What could be more masculine than digging around in the dirt?

The stamps are CTMH You & Me set (discontinued).  The B&T paper is K&Company (I think...not at home to check).  The sparkles and star are also CTMH.

I planned to use some cork numbers for the 17 but couldn't find them, so I cut my own out of a leftover piece of kraft cardstock, stamped them, and sponged them in black.  I should have cut them using my Cricut but I was too...I don't know.  Too something.  Anyway, they came out okay.  I've been seeing a lot of cards with either large letters or numbers on them and wanted to try my own version.

I love the kraft and black together with just a hint of red.  I only threw it in there because the actual ticket I used had some on it and I didn't want it to feel lonely.

I will have to wait to post pictures of Mammoth Cave because my pixels are too large and it's taking too long to download.  I've already lost my connection twice at the RV park where we are staying, so I'd better post this quick before I lose it again.

Until next time,

  3. Fantastic card Becca! It is a happy little explosion of cheer sure to bring a smile to the recipient. I have been struggling with using some black and kraft papers together. I will come back to your blog for inspiration. I think the little splash of red bling is the perfect touch!

  4. Becca, Very nice card. I'm sure someone will be happy to receive this one.

  5. great job - love the collection of items for the card with the splash of red.
