It's a Man Thing

I am back and on a mission - to use what is on my desk - and believe me, it is quite a challenge as things gather and seem to multiply over night - do you know that feeling?  I am sure YOU are not like that! LOL!

I have created these quick masculinbe cards using some remnants of paper from Webster's Pages, I was inspired by Nina Brackett and the way she is using her scraps so creatively, she created something similar to these cards, so I had to CASE her.

I have also used the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners along with the co-ordinating retired Layers of Color Sentimental Banners clear art stamp set, also illustrated by Nina Brackett.

The Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine

Finishing off with a little bit of black bling from Want2Scrap - it does not get much easier than this!

This card is for the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments ChallengeAny sentiment
Charisma Cardz - No flowers allowed
DRS Designs - Masculine
Just Keep on Creating - anything goes
Little Red Wagon - Father's Day card
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Anything goes

  9. Hi Linda, I was so excited to see your entry in the DRS Designs' challenge this week!! I love your card, but then I always love your gorgeous creations. :-) This is a beautiful color combo and great layout. It's a fantastic masculine card with those watches too. I do like that you used up what was on your desk. I too end up with lots of "clutter" but I tend to put it away instead of using it. I should try your technique!! Thanks again for playing along in this week's challenge.
