Build It Up

Today the construction has finally finished up on the repairs to the barn that had been ruined in the attack on the Guild Hall a month ago. I was going to hire a proper builder, but my lord husband’s father insisted he could do the work himself, saving us the gold coins. After much argument I had eventually relented, allowing him to work on repairing the barn. 

I started this card by colouring the Birdie Brown image with Prismacolors and cutting him out. I chose some “wood grain” patterned paper for the background and added some screw brads to increase the masculiness by at least +78 points. The sentiment I stamped using the Unity “the Man” set. And that was pretty much it. I didn’t want to clutter it up with too much stuff because I loved the image AND the background paper so much, I thought less was more.

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Unity “the Man” set and added some bolts from the Unity “Nuts and Bolts” set.

Those same bolts were stamped onto the envelope making everything match all nice like.

This cute Father’s Day card will find himself in the following challenges:

It turns out he did a fabulous job with the repairs, even making some additions to the barn. Nothing will bring back the hellhounds that were slaughtered in the attack, but I finally have a lead on this group of bandits, and soon vengeance shall be brought down upon their little group.
