Okay here it is my take on the challenge...I find it really difficult to make a manly card lol...I dont know why..I instantly thought of a card with some sexy chick on it...Isn't that what they like hehe...Oh ya they love motorbikes to so this is what I came up with..A die hard Road Hawg!!!! It is really hard to see in the picture but the background is swiss dot so it looks like it is snowing :) Hope you like thanks for stopping by..Monique

So many Ideas

I have done a few things here and there and just have had no time to edit and post. A friend of mine was going to  a family reunion and needed some home made gifts for a silent auction that they were having. So I made her a few things. To start out I made this box of cards. I left the cards blank so they could be used for any occasion. 

My Timeless Templates by Lauren Meader - Captured card case
Random card stock and pattern paper
Cuttle bug embossing template

I also made these fancy gum wrappers. I got the idea from one of my favorite sites I like to read Inking Idaho she is so creative and has some great templates. As I was making up these my kids and their friends thought they were fantastic. "Note to self great kid Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers.''

Extra chewing gum
Label punch
MSE Little Birdie

And last but not least I made this adorable Cup Cake Take a long. It is a idea from another one of my favorite sites Nichole Heady's Blog. She is another person who is so creative and keeps us all inspired. Everybody at the reunion just loved this idea something so simple yet so adorable. Instead of using candy for the front pocket I made some Happy Birthday Pokes.. Thanks for stopping by and catching up with me :)

SU crazy for cupcakes & Hero Arts stamps
Swirl & Martha Stewart border punch
Random card stock and pattern paper
Ribbon from walmart
Cake mix, icing, & sprinkles
Trendy tubes from PTI

Back to Bloggin.....

Okay I know it has been along time since I have put any thing on my blog but with everything back in order I am hoping to have some craft and blog time :).. I was trying to prepare , get the house clean, yard work caught up, school supplies bought and so on before my knee surgery. We also got a new addtion to our family a few weeks ago .Her name is Ozzy. Having the challange of getting everything done and potty training has kept me from all my paper crafts, stamping, and scrapbooking. Well I have managed to do a few things and will post them over the next few days but glad time for me is coming up in abundance :) Happy to say that Kids are now in school...ozzy is potty trained ....and my surgery was a sucess so far. I have to exersise every two hours to keep my knee from ceasing up again but the cronic pain has seemed to dissappeared.
