my love for tools

A lot of people may not know this about me but I love my tools!  I was super excited when I bought my first Dewalt drill.  I even get nervous when hunky hunky uses it! LOL!  It might be because I used to do yard work and help my dad fix things around the house when we were little (he has 5 daughters, so one of us had to be the 'son') or it might be because I majored in sculpture while I was in college.  Regardless, I love tools.  So it was perfect when I got a call last night to design some stationery for a client who wanted masculine looking notecards.
Here are the inspirations I had today...





























A men's watch, needle nose pliers, and regular pliers. (It's easy to find these things at our place b/c, did I mention, I love tools! Home Depot! ::swoon::)
Here's what I came up with:
