Ain't no rest for the wicked on Wednesday...

I must be quite wicked as my life has been so crazy busy... no time to rest....;)

Hope that doing this week's Mojo Monday sketch will put my mojo into overdrive. I want to submit a bunch of projects to Paper Crafts magazine before I start work for the summer. Won't have much time to be doing any paper crafting! :(

Needed to make a masculine birthday card (groan - I never have any on hand) and I figured I could use this sketch for it. I think it turned out ok - what do you think? Looking at it after the fact... not happy with my sentiment placement... should have been further to the right, or my circles should have been smaller... sigh.

Also decided to play along with one of the Hero Arts sketches this month. This is the first time I've played along and thought the International skyline stamp would work well with the last sketch.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are having a great week.

  1. I like both cards and now I am thinking I need to buy that cuttlebug folder you used - drat! :)

  2. Great masculine card! I think it is perfect. The colors and the embossing folder work very well together.

  3. I love it! And a boy would never notice the difference anyway ;)

  4. Oh I love them both!! Fabulous colour combos and the embossing on the first is just perfect!! Hope all is well on the west coast and spring has sprung. We are still waiting for it here in Calgary. :-)

  5. Both cards look awesome!
    Hugs and smiles
