A couple of masculine cards.

The sketch this week from Skipping Stones Designs:
 
For this card I incorporated the Scrap Shotz challenge to make a banner card, Kelly Jo's color challenge (Kraft, Cream and Black), Cute Card Thursday - metal.  Both cards fit the Stampin' Royalty Challenge - masculine cards. and this one is also for the Caardvarks Sticker Challenge, most things on this card are stickers and you can't really see it but I did sew on the number 1 (even though it is a sticker).  The banners were cut from a border sticker folded and sewn.  I really had fun with this card.

Funny thing is, Jason and Danica are at an Indoor Track meet in Kamloops this weekend (a day trip to get there).  I was making this card last night when Danica phoned to chat - she always misses me ;)  She and her team mates are embarrassed that their dads are going to race in the Master's Relay race!  Too funny.  Apparently the dads joked about wearing shirts that said "I"m Danica's dad..." love it!  Knowing how Jason runs, I am sure that they have a good chance at winning.
  
All supplies are from Close to My Heart (Game On) except the Kraft Cardstock (PTI)

One of this weeks sketches from 365 Card Challenge - it doesn't show up very well here, there is actually a panel at the top of the card. 
  
I again incorporated the Cute Card Thursday challenge of metal, along with the Cards for Men challenge - green.  Still making my way through the scraps of my Bo Bunny Grease Monkey papers.  I used my Cricut (Indie Arts) to cut out the gears and the Slice (Home Sweet Home) to cut out the wrench.  The stickers are from Making Memories and the brads are from my stash.

Excellent masculine cards and such a cute story to go along with them. You'll have to let us know how it turns out.

And so sweet that you get calls to chat because you are missed. *Ü*

Great cards Laurel! I love them both, but the first one is over-the-top! I laughed at the image of Danica and her friends being all goofey about the Dad's racing! Too funny!!

GREAT cards and GREAT inspiration for me. I have WAY more guys to make cards for than girls it seems, so any masculine inspiration that comes my way is always very appreciated. I love that Game On kit, don't you?
