My first post! A birthday card

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!"


  1. Barb, you made the perfect masculine card! The guitar paper is great, and that yummy brown embossed cardstock makes me want a big piece of chocolate, lol! Love this card! Thanks for joining in the challenge at Cardz TV!
