BC239 - For the Boys

Happy Friday! - Hope you've all had a good week.  Not to bad here.  No (snow) here yet.  Shhhh don't tell anyone that I actually mentioned that 4-letter word!  So are you ready to be inspired by some great Masculine cards.  Then let's get started because that's what Lisa assigned as this weeks Bloggers Challenge theme.

It's good to be back after my break last week.
Here is what I came up with,

Happy Veteran's Day


Hello, It's Friday and normally I would be posting my card for the Blogger Challenge. However I am taking this week off from the challenge. Our theme this week though is, Veteran's Day so if you want to participate make sure you visit Lisa's blog and link up your card there.

I will leave you with this scripture verse: John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

I believe that is what our "Veteran's" often do so make sure you thank a Veteran today for their service to our country to help keep our Freedoms.

God Bless America!

BC237 - Let's Get Sketchy

Hello and Welcome! - It's Friday and that means it's time for the Bloggers Challenge. Before I get started with that I want to share a couple of pictures of Coleen from Halloween.

Incase you are wondering why she's squatted down on the ground, "Grandma, I'm a ladybug!"
How cute is that! (I know I'm partial but she is just so doggone adorable at times.)

Now on to the BC Challenge. - It's a "Sketch" challenge which seems to be very popular. I know I like it because it gives me a starting point for my card. Here is the sketch Lisa (list mom) gave us.
Here is what I came up with using the sketch. I must say that I "flipped" the sketch to a vertical orientation without realizing it but it still fits the overall sketch idea.

It's also my very 1st Christmas card of the year. Yikes, I'd best get busy!

Here's a Close-Up of my flower embellishment.
It's a combination of a Felt Poinsettia (purchased at JoAnns), Paper Holly Leaves (LSBS), and Baker's Twine.

Now it's your turn: Use the Linky Code to add your creation.


All Card Stock - SU
Designer Paper - Combination of SU and another company which I don't recall where I purchased this from off hand. Sorry.
Sprinkles: AnnaBelle Stamps
Embossing Folder - Swiss Dot

Have a great weekend!
