Miss U

I missed you, did you miss me? For a few hours at least?! You may not have even know I was "gone" but this will be a quickie post as I couldn't access my blog last night to set up my post! If you are having issues with yours, Jessica Rone gave me a heads up that sitemeter crashed and has to be removed from your blog if you have it. how frustrating!! Go to blogspot.com to log into your dashboard and remove the code, that should clear it up...

I made this card for my brother who lives across the country from me, so here is a more masculine looking shirt, stamped in black on SU! Basic Gray CS. I filled in the letters with white and then went over them with my Sakura Glaze Pen. The mesh underneath is some of that plastic canvas stuff I used for a piercing template before Gina started carrying the template packs in her store! I just cut it to fit like a piece of magic Mesh and adhered with Mono Multi. It's kind of sporty looking in my opinion, like a net or something. Very clean lines and a few silver brads make this a not too fussy "guy card", I hope he likes it.

Back soon, but have you seen Gina's new guest designer call?? Go check it out!! I want to see as many of you as possible trying out! Mark you calendars for the 15th!!

Edited to Add: So! I've been doing a little work on my blog and I went to check out my sitemeter to see where hits from the last hour have come from...ack, I forgot it's not there, I miss it already! (How will I know you've been here now unless you leave a comment?!) :(

Your Brother will love this! How versatile that this set can be used for male or female!

So when the sitemeter is working, can you tell I come here so often I could be mistaken for a stalker lol!

Because of COURSE we'll leave commments so you can know we were here!!! I was seriously bummed last night when I couldn't even get on to Blogger to go bloghopping and commenting!!

This shirt is just perfect for a guy!! I love the "sporty" look of this with the plastic canvas in the bg!!

hey, melanie, i read on donna's (serenity in stamping) blog that the sitemeter crash is only affecting sitemeter AND Internet Explorer...and I'm pretty sure this is so, I only surf with Firefox and i have sitemeter and no issues...in case you miss it enough to try a new browser :)

awesome card, i'm so getting this set!

Great guy card! My brother lives on the other side of the country from me too, and I would totally see him wearing a shirt like this! I hope my stamps come today!!!

What an awesome idea with the plastic canvas Mel! LOVE that!

I removed mine too, just in case anybody had problems. I like checking that too, but decided that, oh well, I dont need to know what little traffic I get, hahaha!
