stars and stripes...fms #175

hey tracey, momma, friends old and new!

today i decided to create a manly men like glitter?  hmmmm...

anyhoo.  my inspiration came from a sketch by freshly made sketches.  this 175th sketch has limitless possibilities...i know i will return to it often!  here it is...

and here is what i made...

i love the glittery paper and the way you can make a star 'pop' off the paper.

stamp set:  guy greetings, gorgeous grunge
ink:  black tuxedo momento
paper:  black, very vanilla, typeset dsp, gold glitter
extras:  distress tool, sponge, star thinlits, small star punch

i didn't get to put a post up on the paper plunge due to the fact my brayer is messed up!  how in the world did glue get on there...and then of course when i went to scrape it off-GAH!  i'll be back next week to join that very talented group of ladies.  check us out on friday mornings...and won't you consider playing with us?  you inspire us to continue to create each week!

in honor of dr. seuss's birthday, i thought it is only fitting to quote him today.  these words are from the man himself, about himself, not those from one of his books.  "whenever things go sour in a job i'm doing, i always tell myself, 'you can do better than this'." 

pretty awesome words to consider.

thank you for stopping by-
i appreciate you.

until next time-
peace be with you.
