a brief note...

Good morning friends! Welcome to Monday.  I know Monday's can be rough but set your mind to the fact that is it going to be a great day and I bet it will be!

Today's card is a clean and simple card (sketch from HERE) with a masculine twist.  You see this card is going in a package to Afghanistan.  One of our oldest son's best friend's is in Afghanistan right now too (and only about 10 miles from Jon) so we thought we'd send him a package.  The challenge over at CAS-ual Friday's is to paper piece on your clean and simple card and I think I've done that!  These cute briefs and fun sentiment are both from the A Muse Studio set call 'hey, man!'.  More info about everything A Muse Studio can be found by clicking HERE to see my personal website.

As you can see on the left I have also decorated the inside using a piece of the same polka dot paper and another pair of "briefs".  That qualifies this card for the challenge at Truly Scrumptious and Paper Sundaes as well.

I gotta tell ya...this was fun to make.  I love the thought of his laugh when he opens the card 'cuz I know he's gonna get the humor of it!

Thought of the day:  Everyday may not be good but there IS something good in everyday.
