celebrate good times - come on!

i'm feeling it today! :) it's saturday, it's sunny and i'm feeling the craftiness vibe! :)
last night i made this card for the current challenge over at the play date cafe - and what a unique and different color story for me! 

at first i thought there was no way i could make this color combination work! but it turned out to be so FUN to work with and i'm totally diggin it now! :) and great for a masculine card, perhaps!?

i used some mama elephant stamps to create a fun birthday card for my dad! he's all about going to the shooting range and...i'm not exactly sure what it's called, but it's something where he dresses up and shoots through a mock city and saves 'hostages'. it's basically a real life video game i think! lol! anyway, that's what he's in to! so i thought the bullseye image from 'on target' was just perfect for his birthday card!!! 

i used the sentiment from 'good times' and stamped it right onto my washi tape! some of my favorite washi tape, too! i'm totally into the grid design right now...not sure why! just feelin' it! 

i also used the heart from 'on target' and popped it up (as well as the target itself). the heart has been glossified too! 

you may notice a few smudges...yes. i can't even point the blame to my curious, nosy little menn for that. nope! the blame goes RIGHT to my hubby! i had JUST stamped the sentiment, when he picked it up and BAM!! smudge. sigh. such is life, right? :)

anyway, i hope your day is filled with sun, smiles and ink!
