YCU Blog Hop


Welcome to the next stop on the Young Crafters Unite blog hop.  If you hopped here from Jessi's blog, you're on the right track.  I've never participated in a blog hop, but this hop's theme was too hard to pass up -- I LOVE making masculine cards.  So much in fact, that I've got a couple to share. 

Cardstock:  Spring Rain (PTI), Charcoal (Bazzill) / Paper:  Oxford Collection (BasicGrey)
Stamps:  Birthday Bash Sentiments (PTI)
Ink:  VersaMark, Fresh Snow (PTI)
Other:  Clear EP, ribbon (SU), buttons & twine (PTI)
And the Runner - Up ...
Cardstock:  Solar White (Neenah) / Paper: Wander Collection (BasicGrey)
Stamps:  Say It With Style (PTI), Bake Me a Cake (Lawn Fawn)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Malted Milk (Jenni Bowlin),
Faded Jeans & Tea Dye Distress Inks
Other:  Copic Markers, Glossy Accents, Ad Sense die (PTI)

Thanks for visiting.  Your next stop is over at Neelu's blog.  But before you leave, be sure to leave some love below.  The talented ladies at YCU have some great prizes for lucky random commenters.

Happy Hopping!
