Today’s card is one I designed for my son’s 25th birthday this past Saturday.
He has always loved tools! And that is no exaggeration – By 3 he could tell you the names of all the heavy equipment on the side of the roads and the tools at Sears – he loved looking around the tool department with his dad when they picked up things to work around the house. “I’m going out to work in the yard with Norm” he’d say as he headed out to play or build that gazebo after watching Norm on New Yankee Workshop. (I could tell you how to build that gazebo after watching it till the VHS tape was worn out. LOL!) When he got a bit older he was thrilled when he actually got to meet Norm Abram and get a autograph at a Atlanta Woodworking Show! Sigh…. the years have passed quickly.
(You can see how he has used those skills in my posts over the years. Most recently with my Classroom remodel HERE.)
So you can see why when I saw this set in the Occasions Catalog I just knew I had to have it! And since it comes in a money saving bundle (144734/144735) I saved 10% too! And don’t you love the Urban Underground Embellishments (142786) that are perfect for this set?
I loved the way it turned out so much that this card was also part of my March Card Class. Good news I’ve created a different card using the Nailed It bundle that I will use for my April Card Class since this one was such a hit with everyone. So why not sign up for April’s Card Class HERE and join us?
