Challenge Cards

Wow! What a productive day I had! Got the house cleaned, laundry done, finished my errands! I took Chloe to register for curling today as well. She will be playing on a team called Little Rocks. Cute eh?! I'll be sure to take some pics of her and post them when we have our first practice!
This card below is of Beate's new tutorial on file folder cards. I think that is what it is called ;)
I wanted to use some more of my Outlaw DP. This card will work well for a man. Something I don't have much of really. For years my Dad got flower cards from me....haha
Be sure to check out the tutorial on Beate's Fresh & Fun.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Wanted and All in a Row
Cardstock: Choc Chip, Creamy Caramel, Shimmery White and Outlaw DP
Inks: Choc Chip and Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Round Tab Punch, Antique Brads, Cream Grosgrain Ribbon, Corner Rounder Punch and Sponges
Finally I used my Flaky Friends set! YAH! I've wanted this set for so long. Most of you know I am a HUGE snowman fan...collect them and I love to collect stamps too! It was the saying I most wanted in this set though. I have some other great friends that collect snowmen too and this will come in handy for cards to give them.
This card was created for Jen's blog Stamping Therapy. Today we were to use Always Artichoke and Bravo Burgundy. I really like the rich colours together. I don't often use Bravo Burgundy so I was happy to pull it out today.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Flaky Friends
Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla and Wintergreen DP
Inks: Black Stazon, Artichoke, Burgundy, Orange, Rose Red, Bordering Blue and So Saffron
Accessories: Photo Corner Punch, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Antique Brads, MayArts Ribbon

LOVE the snowmen card...and great that you are doing some masculine cards - you're right, they are so hard to come by, you just end up giving the least pink flower card - ha ha.
