365 Cards - Day 51 & D2D For the Guys

Aloha and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at 365 Cards and Designed2Delight. Today's challenge at 365 Cards is a recipe, so lets see what you mix up with these ingredients: 4x4 card, Twine, 3 Buttons, Stamped image, 1 piece of patterned paper, and Sentiment. And if you cook like my mom does, you'll probably add a few dashes of other ingredients to your recipe, but whatever I'm sure come up with a wonderful creation! I kept mine pretty simple, used just a little twine, and added a bit of stitching.

Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Aly's Sunday Challenge - Baker's twine
2. Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - anything goes
3. By The Cute And Girly - Cute and Girly
4. Card Makin’ Mamas - spring colors
5. Claudia & Company - clean and simple
6. Craft your passion challenges - you've been spotted (use dots): got a bit on the DP
7. Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - raise a smile
8. Critter Sketch Challenge Blog - Punches and/or Dies (at least 2 different ones): I got one punch and 2 dies on this one
9. Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Stripes
10. digital tuesday challenge - pretty punches + digi
11. Freshly Brewed Challenge - cute and sweet
12. Iris's Spot - punch
13. Mami Doodles: Digital Stamps - Crazy for Kraft
14. Paper Cutz Challenge - buttons and bows
15. Papertake Weekly Challenge - spots n stripes
16. Saturday Challenge - stitching
17. Sketches by Carly - sketch
18. The Crazy Challenge - friendship
19. Totally Stampalicious - Keep it simple

Next up is my sample for this week's challenge at the D2D Card Ideas blog. This week is "Lets hear if for the guys." I came up with this card...
The image is "Fishing Valentine" and I thought it would make a great anniversary card for a guy! Kept it pretty simple from there with just a touch of embossing and some metal with those giant brass snaps! FUN! Image is colored with copics. Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. CardPatterns - sketch
2. Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - furry friends
3. Paper Sundaes - texture
4. Scrap-Creations - digital
5. Totally Gorjuss - no patterned paper
6. Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - free and easy
7. Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog - texture

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you all come up with too!

What a beautiful morning to wake up to 2 gorgeous cards after such a stormy night in the midwest! The first card looks so much like you as a little kid - blond hair and a sweet smile! And Papa Bear looks like your dad when he went fishing so-o-o-o many years ago and I think my heart is the only thing he caught! LOL! Have a great day DD! Love, SAM aka MOM
