Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago Danielle(dlounds) challenged all the Prettie girls to make a masculine card, make it hard on us why don't ya!!! I tried every Paper Pretties stamp I own, but I just couldn't get anything to work for my "guys". If you haven't figured it out, all the men in my family are a little rugged. Hunters, fishers, retired military, you know, guys guys. I finally gave up and made this card, which I also used for my shoebox swap in Arlington. I need to apologize to Joni, because this hasn't even made it to the post office yet, but I promise it will tomorrow( I have a job interview there anyway)!! I used the SU set, Bronc Buster for the main image and Weathered on the bottom panel. For the shoebox swap, you had to have a 10 minute card, so this is pretty easy to make, but I did do a lot of distressing and sponging. Julie posted out challenge this week which is to Be Inspired by a website or blog and make a card or project based on that. We would love it if you would play along, just be sure to post a link to your card so that we can all see it!! Last week Christie challenged us to make a card using acetate(I guess I need to get started)!! That is all for this post, I need to get some of my MFT stuff posted, so I will see you soon!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!
