TESC78: Kick back & relax masculine style

TESC78 kick back

It’s been a while since I made a fun masculine card, so I pulled a few sets out to make one for this week’s Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge {78}. I also grabbed some cool patterns from Basic Grey’s Archaic pad. I brought out the boots, steak & shish kabob from the Whimsical Wishes set Boys Will be Boys and paired it with the big brew mug from the new Chillax set.

Here’s the conversation that ensued over sharing this card with my DH:

“I like that card”
“I should have just given the card to you”
“I’d rather just have what’s on the card”
“well that’s too much work”
”it’s o.k. for you to spend an hour and a half on the card but it’s too much work to spend 30 mins. making me the meal?”

HA – as if (the card only took about 40 mins) and anyone who knows us knows that I don’t skimp on the home cooked meals around here! Just the other night we had chicken fajitas, homemade salsa, homemade spanish rice (very much more flavorful than ANYTHING you will get at a Mexican restaurant) and my lazy gal’s pinto beans (that’s my pinto beans from a can made with sauteed onions, jalapeno, Bolner’s pinto bean seasoning & cilantro). It was Simply Delicioso!


Here is Taylor’s sketch for you to try - be sure to leave a comment on Taylor’s blog with the direct link to your blog post or gallery upload using the Mr. Linky service so she can check it out!

Love that masculine card, Donna...and having had a meal like what you'd made earlier in the week, I'd hope there'd be no complaints from the peanut gallery!
