What a Guy Wants

I have been tagged by two of my good blogging friends - Danielle and Amy :

The tag is that you have to go to the sixth picture file on your computer and show the sixth picture in that file and then tell us what the photo is of. And then pass the tag on.
Well - my sixth picture file was of our basement being done over with the Owens Corning Basement system (which we LOVE!). This picture shows when it was just finished and we had one Lazy Boy recliner delivered. We had ordered two but they brought the 2nd one in the wrong color (blue) so they took it back and promised to deliver the correct one the following Monday - which they did! This also shows our big screen TV (hence the title of my posting!) The room is actually twice this long - but we placed the recliners half way into the room. You'll also notice our lawn chairs here - those are for guests that come to watch the TV - the hosts ALWAYS get the recliners !! We don't seem to get many guests - at least not for a second visit - LOL!!! (Those lawn chairs aren't actually there anymore!)

And now I will tag:

Anne - Inking in Red
Joanne - Sleepy in Seattle Stamps
Beverly - Beestamper
Anne - Everlasting Ink

I needed a masculine b'day card for my stash so I took the opportunity of today's sketch challenge over on Split Coast to make one.

I used one of the vehicles (a second thing guys want!) and sentiments from the H&M Stamp set called ATV for my card (and I'm afraid it is presently out of stock - I'll find out when it's expected back in and post that info here)

I had this great Harley Davidson black and silver designer paper that was perfect for it. I used the Distressed Stripes cuttlebug folder for the back panel and the D'Vine Swirls folder for the smaller black panel. The 2 small panels and the sentiment are popped up on foam dimensionals. I added the silver star snaps in the corner.

My 1 year blog-aversary is coming up on February 9th! and I'll be offering some mighty fun blog candy so be sure to check back!!

Thanks for coming by today!
