Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Operation Write Home Blog Hop.  If you are just joining us and would like to start at the beginning, please click on the link below.

Our blog hog theme is "missing you."  I don't have a stamp that says that exactly but I think "thinking of you" means the same thing so that is what I used.
I also decided to make a masculine themed card because you don't seem to see them quite as often and because I seem to be stuck on that theme lately.
I used the colors always artichoke, not quite navy and black.  I use the stamp sets, Teeny Tiny Wishes and Lovely as a Tree.  Lovely as a Tree is my favorite go-to stamp set for masculine cards.
I didn't include a picture of the inside, but I lined it with a piece of very vanilla cardstock that I stamped with another stamp from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.

Clean and Simple

Below is a clean and simple card that I made using sketch 68 at Operation Write Home.  If you've never checked out their blog before you really should.  They have a lot of fun challenges. 
I made the gears on the card by using the extra-large double cog punch.  To make the gears more dimensional I glued three layers on top of each other.

On the inside, I stamped the card with gears from the Sense of Time stamp set.
