Mustaches & Sunshine

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for spring to finally make up its mind and stick around. This schizophrenic weather is driving me nuts! I tried to channel some warm weather vibes with this card:


The moment I saw these adorable mustache stamps, I knew I had to add them to my collection. My hubby Seth has had a goatee for almost as long as I've known him (he even won a goatee contest in college), and my grandpa sported a handlebar mustache (with wax and everything!) for years. I guess you could say I've got a soft spot for the facial hair.

My inspiration was the plethora of "mustache on a stick" photobooth props I've been seeing all over the blogosphere. I simply cut a disposable chopstick down to size (we have a bazillion of those things floating around the kitchen - go figure!), taped it to the back of my stamped mustache, and attached it all to the cardfront with foam adhesive and some Tombow mono-multi. Fun, huh? I can tell I'm going to have a blast with this set!

Card Supplies:
Stamps: My Cute Stamps "Mustaches"; American Crafts "Sing Along" (sentiment); Ink: black pigment; Accessories: small corner rounder punch, foam adhesive
