I want to thank Mary at Cardztv for inspiring me to make my own blog. This first posting is for her Sept./Oct. 2010 Create a Card challenge in which you must create a card without using a Cricut. This was indeed a challenge for me, since I didn't even do cardmaking before owning my Cricut. I made this birthday card for my brother-in-law. He is a bass player, so I used some paper from DCWV's Rockstar stack. I ran the brown paper through my Cuttlebug. I kind of feel like this card is missing something, but I guess if I made it too fancy it wouldn't be "manly!"
