It's your day . . .

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge.  
Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps:

I chose to use this fun image:
I picked it because it could be used for so many different occasions when you need a masculine card.  Think birthday, Father's Day, thinking of you, or even an encouragement card.  I think I might end up getting a lot of use out of this one.  I paired it with some screw head brads that I picked up last fall.  My husband and his grandfather are both carpenters so I knew the brads would come in handy.  But really, they add a great masculine touch to any project.  Then, I used a sentiment from Raisin Boat that seemed to fit the image.  Right now, I'm in an altering your sentiment stamp phase, either by masking or in this case curving.  I love clear stamps for this because it's really easy to attach them to your clear stamping block and then arc them to match the curve you are stamping them by.  I'm also in a "out of the box" die cutting technique mood lately, too.  It adds a bit of fun and interest and is a great technique when your largest dies aren't quite large enough to cut out your entire image (which is what happened here!); so fun!
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this week.  I love being inspired by what you create!
