Waste not....

Please make sure you read to the bottom of the post for a very important announcement!

I used the advertising sheet of paper from the front of a pack of CS for the bottom portion of this AnyHero card which is headed to Operation Write Home.  The die cuts are from the new CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  And I used a border punch for the burgundy strip in the middle.  
A Quick and Easy card for the following challenges:
Crafter's Companion September Challenge - Embossing 
Natalie's & Amy's Challenge #12 - Embossing
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge - Die Cuts and Punches
The Cupboard Trilogy Challenge #15 - Male
Rhedd and Rosie's Challenge #16 - Something for the Men
Whimsy Stamps Challenge #63 - Masculine
Word Art Wednesday Challenge #59 - Anything Goes
Clear It Out Challenge - Let's Hear It For the Boys; Stash Item - punches/die cuts
Oldie but a Goodie Challenge Challenge - Dies and Punches  (My oldie is the striped piece from the paper pack.  I usually don't use the front panel until the paper inside is all but gone and I don't need it anymore.  And the punch I used is at least 6 mo. old.)
Unstampabelles Challenge #27 - Using Scraps or Old Stash
Glitter N Sparkle Challenge #51 - Male Cards
I've been trying to get a repetitive post at the top of my blog all week with no success.  If I could get it to show up, this is what you would see:


I'd love to meet some of my blog visitors at the Heirloom Productions York Rubber Stamp & Paper Arts Festival,  October 12th & 13th;  Sit down at my Make & Take Table at the Close to My Heart booth; Meet my friends, Joyce Houck and Betty Locco, both CTMH consultants; Sign up for the CTMH class on Wearable Art and make this fab necklace and gift box:


Have a great week-end everyone!
