365 Cards - Oh Boy

We continue with Cosmo Cricket week at 365 Cards. And, I told you I'd be playing along all week! Today's challenge is to make a birthday card for a little boy. The paper pack being showcased today is Jack's World. Well, I don't have any of that paper line, and my pack was, of course Girl Friday - and it's really pink! So, I used Lil Man instead. I had a few sheets from that line from one of my Apron Strings Designs kits! woot woot! I confess that not even I could cheat enough to use Girl Friday paper and make a masculine card out of it! LOL

I added the Bazzill (red) and DCWV (orange, tan) cardstock, but the rest of the paper, the buttons, and ribbon were from the ASD kit.

The stamp is an old, foam mount from Close to My Heart (you know it's old since it's FOAM). I tied some floss onto the buttons for some extra zing!

Confessions of a hoarder: I confess that I hoard stamps, ink, paper, cardstock, and other supplies. I have it all organized so I know where everything is (mostly) and what I have (usually). I also confess to buying things when I don't know what I will do with them after I get them home. I buy them because I like them. It may be years before I use them. I confess that I am not afraid to use really old stuff and new stuff in the same project. So, you may see an old stamp or sheet of paper here that you MUST have. There is a 50/50 chance that it's discontinued and no longer available. There is a 99% chance that I won't sell you mine!
