The 'Stache

So have y'all heard of Mustache March?  Thank goodness my hubs doesn't participate, I am not at all fond of mustaches.  But when he's on deployment, well...

Pics on the left are obviously fake mustaches, though he does have a real one under there.  I found a pack of silly fake mustaches (see Hulk Hogan's on the upper right?) and sent them to the hubs as a joke, and then I got these pictures back.  Pics on the right are from when he came back home, gave me one mustachioed kiss (scratchy) and then immediately shaved it off.  Thank goodness.

Seems like most alphabet stamp sets don't have an apostrophe, so I used my Sizzix alphabet to make a mask and inked one up that way.  Pretty clever, I thought.

And there's my color palette:  Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede, and little bits of So Saffron and Old Olive with Basic Black accents.  Manly mustache-friendly colors.  I told my hubs if he wanted to do Mustache March, then I would do Armpit April...

Cheers, peeps!  I wish I could stay, but I really must dash.

Supplies, mostly SU!
Stamps:  Well-Worn Alphabet, non-SU smaller alphabet
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Basic Black marker
Paper:  Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede, Basic Black, Pocketful of Posies DSP
Accessories:  Mustache Framelit, Sizzix die (apostrophe)

Love how you made your apostrophe! Very fun page, and I like the tradition!
I'm also laughing at the Doctor Who comment from earlier. :) With #12 starting my husband had re-watched all the episodes, so I was catching 1-3 in a row...I had to go back and see the ones I missed, then I watched them all again in order...haha! Yeay Netflix!
