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.
