April PTI Blog Hop

WOW, hasn't this monthly event rolled around quickly.  Fortunately for us (and in New Zealand, I think), it is a super long weekend as we celebrated ANZAC Day yesterday and today - Tuesday - is our Easter Monday.  My family have gone to my sister-in-law's farm up the coast and are off to Australia Zoo today, mainly to take my daughter again before it becomes too passe but I think the more likely reason is for my husband to take photos of animals, now that his, rather expensive camera seems to be working properly.  I am at home taking care of the domestic animals, and maybe doing a little stamping as well, only a bit though!?!

Anyway, the Blog Hop has a masculine theme this month.  Stamps in this department are sadly lacking for me so had to improvise abit.  Father's Day is in September for us, and while there is nothing wrong with being prepared WELL ahead of time, birthday cards are what I require in the near future.

I think I am really going to love having Modern Basics in my collection - there really are endless possibilities.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI cream, dark chocolate, kraft
Stamps - PTI Modern Basics, Big and Bold Wishes
Ink - SU Early Espresso (and marker),  Crumb Cake
Die - Mat Stack 1
