April PTI Blog Hop

I almost completely forgot about Paptrey Ink's blog hop this month!  So I quickly put something together.

Boys To Men

This month's blog hop is dedicated to all the boys and men in our lives! Now's your chance to create Father's Day projects, boy birthday cards and more to build up your stash! Focus on masculine color
schemes, fresh pattern combinations, understated embellishments and unique uses of images you may already have in your stash!

Since my husband is about to leave for another country and be gone for over three months this challenge was perfect for me.  To have some things ready to send him will be GREAT!!

Here's what I came up with:

Card Base: SU Soft Suede 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  River Rock  4" X 5 1/4"  
Other Cardstock / Paper:   White, Real Red 
Ink: Real Red, Soft Suede
Stamps:  SU Teeny Tiny Wishes, PTI  Fly Away & My Hero, My Dad
Accessories:  PTI Airplane die, SU Real Red ribbon, hemp, SU punches

Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!

ALSO, don't forget about National Scrapbooking Day!  May 7th! Less than two weeks away!
I'll be having challenges and prizes throughout the day!
I think it will be a lot of fun!
You won't want to miss it!
