April birthdays...
Hey there for Paper Players # 193 and Inkspirational

Happy Dirtday for Addicted to CAS

Hi Everyone.  Happy Saturday.

It's the fabulous Kylie's turn to host the Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a fabulous code word for us:

 Of course, there is a fabulous prize for the winner of our challenge.... Many thanks to bugaboo stamps :-)

 Now.... I saw the code word and knew that I wanted to make a masculine card, but decided to go for a boy card.  It's really time to start thinking about the next card drive :-)

I opted to use Gorgeous Grunge and I Dig You.  Perfect cards for a masculine grunge style card.

I played around with several SU brows:  Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake.  I needed a pop of color for the bakko - so stamped it twice - once with StazOn Black and the other with Pumpkin Pie.  I fussy cut around all of the elements and mounted each element with dimensionals and stamped the sentiment in StazOn.  The front panel was then mounted onto a Pumpkin Pie base.

Here's my take on the challenge this week:


 Don't forget to check the fabulous cards from the design team - there are so many different inspirations for you.  Then... don't forget to play along with us.

On a personal note:

Lou and I just got back from an impromptu evening out - so I will be responding to your comments - and posting the winner of the blog candy along with my Paper Players post tomorrow.  In the meantime, Jeanne - so thrilled that Gavin is on the mend and is on his way home!

Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Hi Jaydee,

OHHHHH - if I have a little boy's birthday coming up I'd totally use your idea for inspiration. This is so cool!!! Some little feller is going to love your card!



Hi Jaydee and Jaydee's followers!!

Just coming back from Peru where we spent two weeks . . . so gooooood to see my sister and friends.

Had to check the meaning of "grunge" and the card says it all . . . so cute!!

I have come back with -- as my sister calls them -- lots of toys (srapping material) . . . papers, cardboards, stamps, dies, etc, etc, .. . I will have a great time opening suitcases.

My love to all of you.
