Masculine Card-Praying For You

I played along with several challenges to create today's masculine card.  I really should keep more manly cards on hand, they are like sympathy cards; it seems I never have enough if my stash.  I like to use stars for manly cards like I use flowers on all other cards.  I used My Favorite Things sketch for this one, using the star border die at the bottom.  The sentiment is from the new Verve set Faithful Phrases.  I used black burlap sting and tied it with a chunky brown button, distressing, and a little stitching complete my card.

It is back to work tomorrow, it is a short week for me and a super long weekend ahead.  I get Friday and Monday for Easter.....I am looking very forward to it!  I have had to work the last three weeks without a week  I am hoping for another week off come the first of May.  Hope your evening is great...enjoy!
