Happy Birthday Speedy!

It's not really Speedy's birthday or Speedy TV's birthday or Mark's Finest Papers birthday.  But today's Friends of Speedy TV challenge is all about making a birthday card.  I'm peeking a  new set by Mark's Finest Papers called A Trip To Lancaster.  I really liked the rustic and masculine feel of this image, so I opted for a masculine birthday card.  I never, ever has enough masculine cards.  I embossed my vanilla layer underneath my focal image, added a couple ribbon tabs and smudged up my card base with some Versamark for interest here. 

Sorry to have been such a stranger in blog land lately.  I got a whopper of a cold that knocked me out just after dinner time almost all week.  I recovered enough to get ready for VSN and then could only just post at VSN and not blog about them here.  But....that will leave me some cuties to post in anticipation of the main event coming next month!

Thanks for stopping by!
