SOG Customer Blog Hop *Men*

Good mornin,' everybody!

I worked the whole weekend, so I sure am happy to see Monday! Today, I've got several cards for you to see. I've got them all in separate posts. This way, it won't get too confusing (I hope), and it'll highlight each individual card!



It's time for Some Odd Girl's 2nd Annual Customer Blog Hop! There are four different challenges, and I've made up a creation for each one.

The first category is to make a Holiday card for Men. I used Deck the Halls Tobie and the penguin from Warm Wishes Tia.

I fell in love with this patterned paper from Prima -- it reminded me of the forest from the movie Avatar. C'mon now, which guy could resist Avatar? I love how this paper is non-traditional. It's a bit dark so the penguin and Tobie stand out even more in their bright clothes and merry disposition.

To show depth, I even cut out more of the 'tree trunks' and layered them:

Made my own sentiment and added the lace for some flair. Hey, men can like drama too once in a while, right? LOL!

See you (very) soon!
