Masculine Monday with SSInk

It's Monday... boo!  I get observed tomorrow (yes, already) by the "peer" which is basically another teacher who has been "trained" to observe teachers.  In my opinion, the process stinks because mostly they give you opinions about your teaching and classroom; yet they know nothing about you, your students, etc... and to make matter worse it's only the 6th week of school.  Whatever, it is what it is.  I had a migraine all day yesterday and that is probably why.  Once it's over I can focus on my week-long vacation.

Today is a Masculine Monday and I have a "manly" card for you!  I made this card thinking of fall and truly it can be used for anyone but the colors do remind me of a man!  I used my Lovely as a Tree set and watercolor paper.  I enjoyed painting although I wasn't sure how it looked, it's growing on me!

This is truly one of those cards you have no idea what you are making in your mind... I just kept going with it (usually those cards don't make it to the blog).  I did know I wanted a smaller card to make!  I couldn't figure out where to put the sentiment and then I realized I didn't have to put it anywhere specific.  Then I added the Cajun Craze Candy Dots and I thought it looked perfect!
The envelope was fun to make using the Envelope Punch Board - again in Cajun Craze.  I love the two punch boards and really need to use them both more!

See you tomorrow for more stampin' inkspiration!  Thanks for following me!
