Cuttlebug Challenge 14

This week's challenge from the Cuttlebug blog is all about using your favourite folder. I don't have all that many folders at the moment, in fact, I have three. The birthday one, the swirls one, and the snow village scene. Yep, that's it!

In any case the challenge was very timely because it's my Dad's 60th birthday next weekend and so this week my favourite folder is the birthday one! ha ha!! I am sure that we all have favourites that change on a weekly basis depending on what's going on. (And don't worry - he is the LAST person in the entire universe to look at this blog!! He may look at my personal one but only if Mum points out something to him!!)


The blues work well here for a masculine card I think and it's a simple card that, even if I say so myself, looks good! (I am definitely embellished challenged as I prefer the simpler cards, so I might try the 2RedBannanas challenge next - a creative ribbon challenge)


P.S. Is it just me but does everyone else want to to type Cuttleblog instead of Cuttlebug blog?!

No it's not just you - I have to stop myself typing that too.

Love your card and I'm sure your Dad will. The birthday folder is a great one to have and I'm sure it will still be well used even when you have loads more folders.

thanks for joining the challenge this week and I do hope you'll join in future challenges.

You made an awesome card. I am always in trouble when I have to make masculine cards but you did great.

Cassie said...

What a beautiful card! Love that it is masculine, I think the hardest thing in the world is to make a "guy" card, it so difficult for me not to use pink! But your card is stunning. Hope you join us for future Cuttlebug Challenges and hope your Dad has a great bday!
