Handy Man…. it’s a Paper Pretties Blog Hop!

PWC153 FixIt wm

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. It time to join the Paper Pretties Design Team for our Paper Pretties New Release Blog Hop!!.

The hop started at Paper Pretties Blog, so if you just happened to hop onto my blog you might like to head back to the Paper Pretties Blog so you can start at the beginning.

For my card I used the new Handy Man stamp set, this set is available at the Paper Pretties Boutique NOW! I am always on the look out for Male stamp sets and this is a must have for anyone’s collection.

Father’s Day isn’t until September down here but I know it is close for those of you living in the USA and as I normally have a lot of cards to make as I give them to my daughters etc I figured I would start early! The Happy Father’s Day Sentiment is from the Happy Days sentiment set, this set has sentiments for occasions throughout the year.

As it is Wednesday, it is also time for another Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge. This week the challenge is Texture, we had to add texture to our cards. For my card I added embossing to my red base. I also added texture by adding the twine at the bottom of my card and the screw brads that I placed in the corners of my layers.

Here is the inside of my card using one of the sentiments included in the set.

Want to play along with us:

How to Enter: If you would like to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project using the above challenge and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword PWC153.

Don’t forget to include a link to your card on the Paper Pretties Blog, so everyone can see it too. You don’t have to use Paper Pretties stamps to play, but of course if you have them we would love to see you use them.
