Crazies Challenge 28 -- Masculine

Our sponsor for the first two weeks this month is DRS Designs.  I am truly having some fun with this trio of trees image I received from them.  It is so versatile and today I used it for the Crazies Challenge which was to make a masculine card.  I decided to make a holiday card with a masculine slant as I am trying to slowly 'grow' my 2010 stash.

I CB/d the back ground with a snowflake embossing folder, did some piercing with my SU piercing tool/kit,  used both a large SU snowflake punch and a smalle MS snowflake punch along with a brad to make my snowflake, my oval punch for the sentiment, and lots of sponging.....something I am still trying to perfect.  I am a bit of an uneven sponger......wish I could smooth that out!!!

Now be sure to visit the Crazies Blog and the individual blogs of the team members to see their outstanding work. Use the following links to help you on your journey.......

It's gorgeous, Joanne! I said I'd make two Christmas cards each month all year long so come December it wouldn't be so much....and well, I'm already behind. Yikes! Good for you for getting that stash going.
