This is my song, and this one's for you....I hope you don't mind

So...yep something a little different from me today. I have been eyeing these Crafty Secrets stamps for quite some time, and decided finally to order the Favorite Fellas set, since I don't have anything like it. I preordered them from Anna Wight at Sassy & Sweet Crafts and I seriously had them in my hands the day AFTER she mailed them. (Ok, so I do live less than 2 hours away from her...*wink*)

Anywho...she egged me on to use them, so I had to break from making a scrapbook for my mother in law to make this card.

Something else I tried that's new is Copic markers. They were on sale at Hobby Lobby, so I used some of my "lunch money" this week to get a few. (It's all DEBBIE OLSON'S fault!!) This is my first public showing of my Copic adventures....how did I do? They're actually quite fun to play with. Takes some getting used to, but fun for sure!

Do me a favor and keep my mom in your thoughts and/or prayers today. She is having surgery again due to the infection. A few months back she had a mastectomy and reconstruction, and now there is an infection, so all the reconstruction is coming out, probably for good. She's not feeling great and is ready to be healthy again. Thanks so much...I know I can always count on my PSF's!

Stamps: Favorite Fellas (Crafty Secrets)
Paper: Sahara Sand, GP White, Basic Black, Basic Grey
Ink: Palette Hybrid Noir, Tea Stain & Walnut Stain (Distress Ink)

Love this card, tried to find them on her ebay site, guess they are not for public sale yet, can't wait it looks like it would be a great set.

You did great with the copics... this card is a nice masculine card with some STYLE!

I will think positive thoughts for your mom and her surgery- I'm sure she'll feel much better a few days after.
