Anyhoo, Tracy's Happy Place has a monthly Happiness Giveaway Challenge. I wanted to take part in this challenge because it's a sketch challenge. What's more of a challenge for me is that the card has to be for a guy. It's all in perfect timing because my girlfriend's having a birthday party for her husband, so here's his birthday card and my submission for Tracy's challenge! For a personal touch, I added some beads. Thanks, Tracy for the challenge! Check out Tracy's site. I love last weeks music clip with Chris Daughtry! I bought his CD after seeing his clip from Tracy's site.

Here's a card that I'm sending out this week. I used heat & stick powder to set the glitter and a retired SU! stamp set, All That I've Seen. I punched out the sentiment from preprinted vellum paper that I bought from the scrapbook store.
Here's my power tool - the ATG 700 tape gun! I used to buy those double sided tape dispensers that fit inside the palm of your hand. After a while, I found myself buying two or three at a time whenever I went to the craft store. Then I was introduced to the ATG 700 tape gun. A roll of tape is less than $2.50 for 36 yards. Is that a bargain or what? I bought the tape gun from, framingsupplies.com, years ago. So far, this place has the best prices (in my opinion) for the ATG 700 dispenser and tape refills. I bought the adapter for the tape gun so I could use the 1/4 inch tape refill. My sister-in-law and I like the 1/4 inch tape. It seems to roll more smoothly than the standard tape size.
Okay, now I'm getting sleepy. I have to get up earlier than usual these next couple of days because the streets I usually take to work are going to be closed due to the All Star Game and all the festivities. So, I have to take an alternate route to and from work. But that's okay, all is good!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a great week!
