MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends #13

The challenge over at MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge #13 is to make a masculine card. That worked out perfectly for me since a friend recently asked me to make her a masculine get well card!
I thought this image of a cabin tucked in the woods looked like a peaceful way to wish someone well. I stamped the image on white with Pumice Stone Distress ink and embossed it with clear detail ep. The sentiment came from a masked off portion of the SU! Wellness Wishes set. All the sponging was done using Pumice Stone ink and don't tell anyone, but I used that SU! lattice square embossing folder AGAIN! LOL It just works with everything!!
Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a cool weekend. Our heat index for today is 110!! Whew!!

It's me again! I have not been to the Boyertown store yet. I love L&L. Lorene is so nice! Maybe we will meet there sometime. Went to CK last year but only for an hour. That is how long I stood in the Basic Grey line. LOL! Hate the parking there, so not sure. Michales in Pottstown is just too close! Here is my reg e-mail

I like that soft blue you added. Makes it bright when so many "manly cards" are dull. Thanks for joinging Speedy's Friends!

Lovin' that texture. Softer colors can be manly too. Thanks for playing along in Speedy's Challenge this week.
