MDS to the rescue!

There is nothing more stressful than getting a phone call from your boss...especially when it's to ask you to make him a birthday card for a "very special family member".  GULP!  His helpful tip for creating this card was that this special man has a passion for airplanes.  As I hang up after telling him "I'll see what I can come up with", panic sets in.  Airplanes?  I don't have any airplane stamps!!!  I asked a few fellow demos to see if they had any, but no such luck.  Then tonight as we are eating dinner I remember...MDS!!!  The Adventure Awaits stamp brush set was part of the MDS2 download...hooray!  With a little sketch inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches I was able to create a card for a special young man who will be celebrating his 90th birthday!

 Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP
Ink ~ Midnight Muse
Stamp Sets ~ Adventure Awaits (MDS), Vintage Verses (SAB)
Other Supplies ~ Metallic Brads, Houndstooth Embossing Folder, Stampin' Distress Tool

Whew!  Now I can sleep tonight knowing I've got this card done :)

If you haven't tried MDS, give it a try!  You get a 30 day trial for FREE!  You won't regret may just save your crafting emergency!  LOL! 

Happy Stamping!
