Trip Preparations And A Masculine Card

Hello friends!
Sorry, to have been dragging my feet this week as far as blogging goes. I've been creating as usual, just not getting any visiting done nor photos taken. The Penmaker and I leave for a trip to Virginia in a couple days and I have been busy getting things ready. As in the past three years, our friends have given us their condo in the Massanutten Mountains, which means extra packing... have to take scraping stuff, hiking gear and some food preparation items. Am really anxious to get going.

One of our views.

I started this post this
morning, and am just getting back to finish it... tisk, tisk! Terrible!!!
I did, however,
make another card and get four projects and a pen photographed. Here is a masculine card I did yesterday using Prima products...

This is a little bit
different, wouldn't you say? I had lots of fun playing around with the gears and other metal pieces. The papers are Prima's Printery and a scrap of KaiserCraft's 75 Cents.

This chipboard piece
is from the Romance Novel collection. The timepiece, wing and gear collage piece are Prima. The button is by My Mind's Eye. The gears on the car and the one beside the collage are Idea-ology. The tiny key and bottle cap are from my stash. The nut is from The Penmaker's jar full of nails, nuts and bolts, screws and miscellaneous metal treasures.

Now... (equal time)...

the gorgeous new
pen my sweetheart just made.

I won't be around
much for the next week and a half, but I'll have some new cards and an album scheduled. Please come back and have a look. I promise to visit you as soon as I get back... the Penmaker is taking his laptop, but I'm just no good using it. Have to have my Mac.

Thanks for stopping by!
