Stamp TV October Blog Hop

For this month's Stamp TV CSS Alumni's Blog Hop, Carolina offered up this sketch - which was designed by Melissa Cash.  If you have arrived from Gerri's post, you are right on track.   She does a beautiful job with copics!  You might want to start at Stamp TV - so that you don't miss any of the inspirational cards from the CSS Alumni.
and here is my card:

I used Melanie Muenchinger's set called Pretty Patterns. This set has some wonderful images.   The sentiment was from Hello Sunshine.  I needed a birthday card for one of my son-in-laws and Melanie's set was perfect to make a masculine card.

Now you can pop on over to Kay's blog and see what she created.  Remember to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (October 30), Stamp TV will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

Thank you for looking at my card, have a HAPPY stamping day.
