For that Special Man!

The DUEL is is the 15th of the month, ya know??
Jamie and I are lucky enough to hostess this month and sent kits to our partners.
I sent:
Krafty Dots by Recollections, Out of Print/Storyteller by Basic Grey and Go Fish/Mini Fish by Carolyn Holt Designs
Burlap and Pearls by Recollections
Ribbon and Bakers Twine from my stash
Clothespin from SU!
Stamps: Favorite Occasions by JustRite and Totally Tool set from SU!
Here is what I created:

I went with a Kraft base, added some green cards stock from my stash and voila...a card! I am not sure who is getting this card..probably my surrogate father (mine passed away while I was a teenager). I do have a couple days to decide!
Make sure you stop over to the other dueling blogs!

Terrific card, April! You really hit the mark with this awesome masculine themed kit. I love the long narrow card base and how you layered with those super papers! What a superb image and sentiment for a special man!!!

Wow, April!!! Love your card. And love that you shared such great items in your kit for us this month!! Thank you so much! I like the shape of your card, it really rocks the papers and shows off the image so nicely. The burlap was great for a masculine card, and I like how you used it here.

Look at your cute and long card! I love the 'natural' aspects of the card. Burlap and tape measures are always good for guys!!!

Great kit and thanks for sharing!
