JUG'in (Techniqin')

Soo excited for this week's Just Us Girls Technique challenge!  I love when challenges teach me something totally new!  The technique was to make a woodgrain pattern.  The background paper was actually a mustard yellow sheet of cardstock when I started and then I scored it with my scoring board and rubbed white & brown ink over the top of it - so cool!  I plan to use this for most any masculine card I have to make in the future!  I checked the JUG's blog tonight while eating dinner and enjoying an episode of 'Mob Wives' and realized it was due tonight by 9pm.  I put it on pause and rushed to my craft room to get started!  I'm really excited to give this card to my father-in-law this weekend, I'll probably make another one and change it up a bit for my own dad!!  Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!
