My dad was a Southern Baptist preacher. For Christmas, Father's Day and his birthday, he always received ties. One year, I bought him a man's "muscle" shirt with Mickey Mouse on the front and... He. Loved. It! Wore it every weekend! I just made myself miss my dad! :(
Anyway, this digi stamp set called Not A Tie! from DeeDee's Digis brought back those memories of his receiving tie after tie after tie. On top of that... he didn't like cheap ties either... if you were planning to gift him a tie... it best be top quality! I can understand that. He was up in front of a congregation every Sunday... all eyes on him.
So this is the card I made with this digi stamp set:
The sentiment is part of the stamp set and I just cannot tell you how much I love stamp sets that come with sentiments! Love! Them! This is for the second of two progressive challenges I am posting today. This is for DeeDee's Digis May Digi of the Month Challenge. I am a follower of this blog. The blog layout I use does not allow me to list challenges on a sidebar. Instead, I display badges and / or links here. All the supplies are from my long-hoarded stash... :-\ ... I fussy cut the ties... because it was super easy to do! lol And layered them above a black wax jewelry thread I bought back in 2007 only because it was $1 but I had no idea what it was until my friend, Maria, came over late last year and told me that's what it was! Ha! Here's a close up of what I did:
I thought myself VERY clever! I colored the ties like this because I remembered having some paper that looked very masculine with these same colors. What I did not remember is that obviously I'd used it because I could not find it! Or it's just in such a safe place that I will find it when I am looking for another paper I thought I had. I really, really need to chose my paper first and then color the image! I just cannot seem to learn that! :-\
Thanks for stopping by! :)
