Friends with Flair!

Guy cards....we all have our own go-to when we're making them, right? One of mine is this awesome stamp from Unity:

Supplies: stamps from Unity; Palette Noir ink; arrow & brad from stash; paper & sticker from Fancy Pants; Corner Chomper

Seriously, this phrase NEVER FAILS to bring a smile! Linking up with Friends with Flair  this windy Friday morning :) The wind has been crazy the last few days, and the temperature went from -16C Tuesday morning to +8C Wednesday and +13C Thursday. That's just not right. And it turns out, with the wind blowing *just so* all kinds of crazy noises 'go bump in the night' so I spent most of the night trying to calm the dog. Abby thought we were being invaded, I guess. You'd think after the 40th or 50th banging sound she'd relax, but nope. My dog is a big chicken!

Here's hoping for a nap later on ;)
xoxo,
Jessi

Totally fun card, Jesse! That stamp set is totally fun! We had all kinds of wind here, too. There are branches everywhere and trees down as well--including one of the neighbors' tree in our yard. It's not supposed to be there ;-)

It must be spring! Until it freezes again and turns all the melting snow into slick ice :(

Your card is awesome - made me giggle. I think I need to find a 'hey stud' stamp :)

Great fun guy card! We had horrible wind last night, I was in South Dakota overnight and it was outrageous!

Atti is a chicken too. Something was freaking him out yesterday and he stuffed his 95lb frame under my craft desk! Not awkward at all for me...
And as for bumps in the night... We watch Paranormal Activity last night. I may never sleep again...
