I think this must be the first post I have done in such a long time that isn't actually part of a blog hop or challenge!  I forgot what it was like to not have lots of stamping friends join in with me one way or another in a post, lol.  I can hear an echo in here!

I couldn't sleep.  Surprise.  Story of mylife at the moment.  Normally I toss and turn until I finally go back to sleep exhausted!  Not this time.  I decided to get up and make a card instead.  As you do.

I am really glad I didn't go back to sleep as this was the result of my early morning crafting!  I love it and hope my sweetie will too when I give it to him for his birthday.  Which isn't til June. I just hope I don't forget where I put it!

The Urban Underground suite of products makes creating awesome masculine projects a doddle!  This card came together so quickly.  I love the bold designs of the designer paper and the gorgeous colours too, even though I chose to keep this really neutral.  The stamp set is a handyman's dream, with great tool images to choose from and some fun sentiments as well.  And just look at those fabulous metal embellishments!

The only colour I used on this card was Old Olive for the big bold sentiment inside my card and I used a blender pen to add subtle colour on the tools.  I need to use this suite more!  It really is perfect for the men in our lives.
