Post #3!

What can I say? I'm on a roll--guessing that afternoon nap really helped! :)

I've been trying to catch up on all the different challenges out there in blogland and the latest challenges caught my eye. The first is being hosted by CAS-ual Fridays. A clean and simple card for a boy/man. Many of us know that's not the easiest thing to do b/c we love our flowers and butterflies! The second challenge was to incorporate some die cuts or punches on the card and that's over at A Blog Named Hero. So, without further ado, here's the challenge badges and my CAS card using a couple of punches.
I can almost imagine the joy on my own boys' faces if they were to discover an old in a tree! That's why I chose this stamp for my card. I stamped the image, cut it out, used a texture plate to give the bark some dimension, and then inked it with distress ink. Then, using a grass punch, I punched an old paint chip and used that for my grass and also punched some leaves in that deep maroon red that is showing up so lovely here in the Northwest during the fall. (Unfortunately, I don't know who the manufacturer is for the stamp b/c I'm borrowing it from a friend. If anyone knows, please let me know so I can update that info here. Thanks!) I finished off the card with a cute sentiment and the card was done!

Thanks for stopping by--again!
