Sisterhood Challenge : Stripes / VLV Jan 2011 Wk 1

Inspired by my Sistahs in The Sisterhood of Crafters and our current challenge of using striped paper on our creation, I really went to town with the stripes! I also figured the VLV Jan 2011 Wk 1 sketch worked perfectly for a manly card since I have a coworker's birthday coming up in February. Alas, this card was born!

There's definitely stripe overload on it...but I think he'll like it. Plus it's relatively clean & simple, which is both tough and easy for me. I love adding embellishments, but I'm never sure what really works for me.

Anyways, I'm happy to report that my second snowboarding lesson was last night  (technically the third, but I bailed on the -40 weather a week ago) and I still have no broken bones or really wicked bruises. That's not to say there was less falling....don't get me wrong. I just land a little more gracefully for the most part, even managing a flip last night near the bottom of the hill ;)
This is a long short week at work and I'm sooo looking forward to a few days off with lots to do, but nothing officially booked! And it's back to running after two Sundays off. YAY!

Don't forget to show us your striped creations at
The Sisterhood!

Happy Wednesday, everybody!
