Masculine card

Hi there, been a while since I've posted a card, but here's one.  I needed a birthday card for a male and this is what I came up with (with very limited supplies)!

I used SU's Natural white card stock which is nice because it already has a little texture to it.  I think a "man-card" should be rather CAS, don't you?

I scored a couple of lines across the bottom to intersect with the adorable little focal frame.  Since ribbon would be too frilly or girly I opted to use a twine double wrapped with a (make-believe knot) and a brad from my stash.  Guess the photo doesn't show the score lines but they are there.

I know, I know too many shadows, but it's so sunny and bright I had to take the picture in the shade.

Notice the cute little matching envelope too.  I'd show you the inside of the card which is also decked out, but I forgot and already wrote inside.  Take my word for it, it's cute.

SU Natural White and Espresso card stock and some unknown striped paper
Frame from PTI's Framed Out #3
Sentiment also from PTI's Think Big Fav # 12
Twine and brad unknown.

Would love to hear your comments on this card, so please leave me a line or two.

Thanks for lookin'

Long overdue...

Well it's been almost a month since I last posted (so much for N.Y. Resolutions).  Since all of my card making, stampin' items have been packed up and almost on their way up North I turned my crafting to making some barrettes for my granddaughter.

Here are a couple I made for her, unfortunately the photo's aren't the best quality.  The first one is made from pieces of felt and hot glued onto a metal barrette with a cute little button in the center.

This second one is made using a cute polka-dot ribbon as well as a felt flower.

This last one is made using some polka-dot ribbon and a green bow that was attached to some Christmas candy I received from a friend in MI.  (Never toss out a cute bow).

Here's a cute picture of my granddaughter wearing her choice, Isn't she a cutie-pie!

Thanks for looking.
