It's just a guy card, but it's something anyway...right?  What I can tell you about is a website that I found called Printable Paper, where you can download things like graph paper, or music paper. There's even yahtzee score cards there! It's where I found this lined paper, and I think it's cool that you can print onto the matching cardstock you're using as well.
Cardstock and Papers: Stampin' Up
Other Stuff: Twine, brads, spiral border punch, pop dots.
My Favorite Thing: The fun website I found!

Peace & Luv,

Party!!  If I've ever seen a cute cow, this is it!  It's a Hambo digital and I think it's adorable so I used it for this week's Hambo Hoedown Challenge #21, which is to use some kind of twine or cord, but no ribbon.  It just so happened I still had some of this twine on my work desk from the other day, so it worked out just fine!

I am also entering the Play Date Cafe's Challenge PDCC87, which is to use Slate Blue, Barn Red, and Grey.

It's Friday...yippee!!  I was inspired by this card by Lauraly that I found on Splitcoaststampers to make this funny little creation.  I knew I had some monster papers from CTMH called Hooligans, and it also knew that it had some matching stickers, and so here you have it!  Thanks Lauraly for the inspiration today!

I started off the night having to make another boy card, and since that's what I had for you yesterday, I didn't think it'd be fair to do another one 2 days in a row.  So I made it (see below), but also put together this girlie card with the same papers, since I already had them out.  I didn't think these papers could be used for anything other than a boy, but adding the coordinating polka dot paper sure proved me wrong!

Cardstock:  Kraft, off white, Stampin' Up - Soft Suede
Papers: Chatter Box
Other Stuff:  Markers, crimper, rhinestones, brads.

How was your Saturday?...groovy I hope!!  What a fun word that isn't used near enough anymore!  I've been wanting to use the You Rock CTMH paper for awhile, and today was the day.  I also used a Top Coat, which is what the guitar is, and it's an overlay a little bit thicker than vellum.  They are pretty cool actually, and add a fun and different element.

All cardstock and papers:  CTMH - You Rock 
Other Stuff:  Star punch, ribbon, buttons, crochet thread, and some rhinestones.

Peace & Luv,
Hello goddesses!!  This is Spa Toodle, pre-colored and ready to roll...and it can't be easier than that!  Of course I had to use some of my new CTMH papers too, since they matched her green mask.  I think she's just adorable!

Well what do you get a guy who's latest passion is a '61 Thunderbird that he just bought for himself...right?!  I figured I had to make him a card with this picture, add a little guy type black ribbon and some studs, and he was a happy man!!
