One card, two challenges.........

Was in a time crunch so had to make this in a jiffy. Went with the CAS style (thanks June). I am entering this in The Cuttlebug Challenges challenge for a child bday card this week. This is a card for my son's friend who is turning 10. At that age they don't want anything cutesy anymore. Went with masculine colors and twine for a boyish look. My son seemed to like it so guess I did okay.
Also, this is for Allsorts Challenge blog. They are turning '1' and are having a great blog hop with lots of yummy blog candy up for grabs. You should go check it out!
Here's my supply list:
**olive cs
**kraft cs
**Distress Ink: Peeled paint
**birthday circle token
**Sizzix present die
**Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder
**Happy Birthday stamp by Hiedi Swapp

CAS works well for you too. The colors, metal washer (?), and twine give it an all boy feel.

D, I spent all afternoon yesterday cleaning up/re-org my papers in my craft room (I have not gotten to 'The Closet' yet...I want to, not sure it will happen this weekend) I am getting rid of several scrap bags of coordinating papers. I have a Sheryl pile (all SU), and a Deanna/Chris pile, and a pile for my mom. I even cleaned up MOST of my piles, so I now have a little more floor space. I actually spent about 6 hours doing this; I didn't think it would take so long, but it feels very liberating and my room looks less junky and a little more organized.

I am so glad you are participating in the Be Inspired challenge this week at Cuttlebug Challenge blog ;)
