Crazy4Challenges Go Masculine

Frances is our Crazy4Challenges hostess for August, and as many of you know, she lives in Australia.  Well, it will be Father's Day in Australia next Sunday, so she asked us to make masculine cards.  I used this fabulous set by Flourishes which was still a virgin.  I just know I will use it often now that it is open as it will definitely help with future masculine b'day cards.

Be sure to stop in to the Crazies Blog to see the creations made by this very talented and creative team.

On a personal note, today will be our last day of preparations with Hurricane Irene heading our way.  What a week it has been.....first an earthquake and now a hurricane.  Not sure what the East Coast has done to anger Mother she sure is being pretty vengeful this week!!!!

Hope everyone in its path stays safe and dry!!!

ALSO......are you a mystery solver.....can you tell me what paper tool this is?????

When I started 'weeding' through my stamp cave, it was in a container of tools I use all the time.....I thought it might be a tool to pick up small metal items....a magnet that would extend in length, but I couldn't seem to figure out how to extend it....and as it is it isn't magnetic.  Here is is from another side angle....

So......are you my mystery solver???????  If so, please tell me what the 'heck' this is!!!!

Great card! Tool - does the cover come off? Is it an engraver of some sort. What a strange looking tool!

Super for the nice you found this image. As for the tool, that is an odd one. Please let us know IF you ever get an answer. My curiosity is up!
