Taylored Expressions May "Blast from the Past" Blog Hop

This month's theme is to... "Make it Masculine!" 

Where's my blue??? LOL!

Yes, I live in a house FULL of BOYS!!! and creating something boy-ish always has to pre-approved by them! NO bows, sparkles, ribbon or... a whole lotta other stuff! geesh!
My cards for today have been pre-approved by the almost 5yo, 7yo and 35yo, hee hee!!!

For my first card, I used my "Belated Birthday - Stand Out" A La Carte Stamp;
I just had to have me some Cosmo Cricket Social Club DP!...
and I used it as my 'embellishment' for this card... I have tough critics ;)

For my next card, I decided to go even simpler and use my "Much Appreciated" Stamp Set...
I some red ink since it's hubs fave color, and stamp directly onto the Kraft CS;
I used a scrap of Cosmo Cricket Social Club DP for the sentiment and a bit of twine with a wood button...

Clean and simple seems to be the thing for 'men' :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy the hop :) :) :)
