Out on a Manly Limb

I've been having such fun playing with my Top Note die from Stampin Up.  I love that I can cut several dies all at once to streamline my mass production - I was easily able to run through five pieces of cardstock at once.  In fact, I had a nice sized card order that I cranked out in record time thanks to that little baby!!

I also love that it creates a nice focal point large enough for me to include both my main image and my sentiment too.  This time, I put it to work to create a card for my father for his birthday.

The background was created with my Houndstooth Backgrounder from Cornish Heritage farm, 
inked up with Adirondack ink in Hazelnut and then stamped on Close to Cocoa cardstock.  The stamp set, of course, is Paper Trey Ink's "Out on a Limb" which I think by now you know I totally adore!!  However, I was able to find a place to include this lovely quote as well.  Finished off with two manly buttons from my stash.

Gotta love my dad, he said it was a $40 card.  I think that means he liked it??  I won't even give thought to tallying how much the various supplies cost... but I will say that I've certainly got my money's worth out of this set.  I use it all the time.  Um, you've probably already noticed that huh?
