Today I did something other than work on my house!!!

So, as you know if you've read my previous posts, I've been doing lots of work on my house. To get most of this stuff done I've needed lots of help. Today I made some thank yous for Luke, Marshall, and Edwina who were my super awesome ceiling scraping crew.
Below is my attempt at a "masculine" card. I know, it's got ribbon on it, but it's brown, gimme a break. I also tried to distress it and used grunge board to keep it from looking to "girly".

Recipe: SU Real Red and Blue Bayou cardstock, DP K and Company "Wild Saffron", ribbon Michael's, Tim Holtz grunge board, Sentiment SU Sage Advice, Ink SU chocolate chip.

Next is my "girly" card for Edwina. It's design is a CASE I'm sure, but I don't know who to give credit to. I {heart} this set by Rupa Shevde for Gina K. Designs http://www.ginakdesigns.com I used the last few scraps of this DP that I LOVE. This makes it a good fit for Emily's challenge here: http://emilygiovanni.com/?p=2148 Unfortunately, I have no clue about what company it's from.


Here's close up of the paper piecing:

I've been hoarding the last teeny little scraps of this DP because I liked it so much, and it's the last.
Recipe: Fabriano Medioevalis card, stamps Retro Boutique by Rupa Shevde for Gina K. Designs, ink Pallete Noir Black, DP ??? ETA- one of the DPs is Basic Grey Two Scoops---thanks, Emily!

Thanks for coming to visit, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I love your cards...I think that card is very masculine...when I make jewelry it's so hard for me to do masculine stuff. Great Job!
