Anything Goes!

Time for another challenge!  Today's cards are for the OWH Midweek Throwdown Almost Anything Goes.  The cards shown were also made for the Joann Craft for a Cause Contest.  Enjoy!
Christmas Ornaments
This card looks a lot simpler than it is.  The red cardstock under the vellum is actually embossed with a Christmas Sizzix set I purchased at Joanns.  The black 'brads' were dots I doodled with my marker since Joanns seemed to be out of stock that day.  
Another entry for Joanns.  My hub got crafty and made some barbed wire from some copper wire in the beading section and then crafted the word cowboy as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Masculine Cards

This is a difficult challenge for me but I think I got it right on this time.  I do my best with red and black when I think masculine but find it hard to keep it so simple.  No flowers or bows, no Stickles!  The following two cards were created for the OWH S&S Masculine Challenge.

The blue jean card was made by my husba..oh I mean a crafty friend of mine.  The Copenhagen can that's peaking out is a real lid to one of my husbands containers.  Yay, way to recycle!  Here's a close up.

And yes, those are real strings from my jeans, randomly ripped off me while the card was in the making!  Glad they weren't my favorite pair!  Please leave this crafty friend of mine some comments and encourage them to create more!

Hope you enjoyed! Have a great day!

OWH Sketch Challenge #39

Long Time No Blog!

Hello fellow crafters!  It's been awhile since I've been on here and I would like to thank that to our Hero being home!  We are finally getting back into our routines and I have found some time to start blogging again.  The card I've created to share with you today is for the OWH S&S Sketch Challenge #39.  Please Enjoy!!

My Everything
Here I go again with my SU Owl Punch...does anybody else find themselves in a routine of using a specific product?  I used Melon Mambo ink and DSP.  The embossing folders used were Swiss Dots and SU Square Lattice.  The flowers are stamps from the SU Always set that I cut out and embellished with 2 black brads.

Thanks for stopping by!
