Old Guys Rule & the Winner

Have you guys heard of the company "Old Guys Rule"? I wasn't sure if it was a West coast thing or not. Anyway, my dad's friend actually started up this company. He used to be a rep for a surf clothing company and then left and started this company. I actually used to live in his father's tri-plex in Dana Point (tiny beach city right before San Diego) right out of grad school. It's pretty big here in SoCal and Downtown Disney even sells it. My mom asked me to make a card for my Grandma's husband using the "Old Guys Rule" theme. So I went to my local SS looking for some paper and when I walked in they had a whole section of "Old Guys Rule" paper, chipboard, stickers and brads. All by Creative Imaginations which is based in Huntington Beach which is very close to where I live. I bought everything they had because it was like kismet as far as I was concerned. Wow, my dad's friend must be rolling in the dough.

This card is super simple and follows the same type of idea as my Thomas card. I just adhered the background paper to dark blue cardstock and used a chipboard piece. The metal charm is actually a brad.

Well, my little one is surviving her first couple of days in daycare. All of the caregivers love her there. They say she's a really good baby and really sweet, which she is. She did seem to really want her pacifier, which is wierd because she just spits it out at home. It was probably because she missed her mama! Tyler had been going part time all along so he's fine with going back to full time.

Now onto the winner which is NormaJ! I have your addy already so I'm going to go to the post office today because I still have last week's winner to mail! Don't forget to check back on Friday where I will have another heart candy giveaway!

Pin It Now!

Congrats Norma. I haven't heard of the Old Guys Rule, but I'm going to check them out....that's if they have a website. Thanks for the heads up. Glad daycare is going well. That's one of the hardest thing to do.
