Still here!

I guess I've been busy because I haven't posted in nearly three weeks.  :) 

Thanks to a couple of reminders on the OWH FB page, I finally got around to making my ODBD challenge card for the month of November.  We were asked to use a tool that we've neglected.  Immediately the Fastenator came to mind (what a stupid purchase that was) but the results weren't what I wanted.  I covered up the large staples on the first card with the sentiment and pretended that I didn't mess it up too badly.  Hehe!  These Cosmo Cricket papers are great, though, aren't they?  I was trying for masculine; do you think I succeeded?

The second card is my actual entry.  I used a Cuttlebug die/embossing folder set of Princess Belle.  I got the set for pennies on Oh My Crafts a while ago and this was the first time I'd used it. 

Please take some time to make a card for the ODBD challenge.  ODBD is so generous to offer shipping costs for two boxes of OWH cards per month but we have to post 50 cards to earn it!  Help out and post a card with this month's theme: unused tools.  :)

  1. Oh my goodness I forgot all about the Fastenator. Well anyway I really like both of your cards. The papers on both are nic and the embossing on your second card really came out nice with the sanding. Great look. Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. These are both really nice, Kathryn! I wondered why I hadn't seen you posting in a while. :)
