To do or not to do....

Heya people,

Yep, it is me! After another long absence. :) I have a post-it note holder to share today. My younger brother has been asking me to make one for him since last year (yeah, that long!!) and I finally made one just before the start of his 5th semester in college and just before his 20th birthday ;-) {I've asked him to take it instead of a card... mean me but I have had no time to craft :( }...


I loved how it turned out :) and he did too! I have not really used jute on any project so far but now I'm in love with it :). The boat and anchor are hand-drawn and cut. A few days of absence from blogland has taken my creativity back to where it should be I guess ;-) And I made it without feeling bad about not having a male-themed stamp set or die-cut set! I loved the effect of the script embossed on red... The button is an RAK from Tejal and the ribbon from Shalini.

Do you like it? I'd love to read your comments :)

Ciao,

Smita

  13. Its such a pretty creation... perfect to give it to boys... I think making cards for boys are really challenging and you have won the challenge with this creation... I am following you now..
    and yes I just love the fine cut of anchor.. looks like your hands are Silhouette SD... :D

    Love,
    Priya...
