Here, I have a masculine card to share with you.


This card was actually inspired by Michele’s for Muse’s Callenge #104.

Michele’s card:

I know that I totally missed the deadline for that challenge, but I have some very good reasons.

1.My computer died. Dead.

2. Two days after my computer died, my family and I went away from our house (and my card making supplies) for almost a week.

3. Upon return, I made the card, starting setting up my NEW computer, forgot to check the deadline, went to bed and then discovered the deadline had passed about 2 hours too late. 😦 I was very disappointed.

Oh well!

So, in keeping with my card, I’d like to say,

“Yo, Michele! I wanted you to know that I appreciated your card. I have another one in the works inspired by yours too.” 🙂

However, this week’s Challenge #04 over at the Male Room happens to be

Make your Own Background Paper”, so I’m going to play this over there!

See the process of making the background paper below.

I made background paper by die cutting 4 different colored chevrons, attaching them to sticky label paper, slicing the paper into strips, realigning them on more sticky label paper and then trimming into a rectangle. This was very fun, relaxing and a bit like doing a jigsaw puzzle.
