Masculine Card Blog Hop

Welcome to My first Blog hop. This is the first time I have participated on a blog hop. I am excited for you to blog hop along our list of wonderful blogs from the Card A Day Blog. I have some blog candy for you to win also. Leave me a comment on my blog. Letting me know you were here and I will pick one for my blog candy prize. Also there is a prize over at the Card A Day Blog for one lucky winner.
Lets see my card.                           
                          I made a Spinner Football card.




I cut the football and the goal post from Everyday Paper Dolls at 6 inches. I cut the bottom of the goal post off to fit my A-2 card. Then I wrapped the post with red and white yarn. The football was cut twice. I sandwiched a few inches of twine between the two footballs.Then taped it to the inside of my card. I placed a second piece of card stock (cut the same size as the card  front ) over the taped twine. That way you can twist the twine football before placing the card in the envelope. When your card is opened the football will spin. The medallion was cut from Tim Holts medallion die. I used a stamp from my stash and placed on top of the medallion.
BLOG CANDY!!!!!
I have two stamp sets for you.
One is from Hampton Arts and it is the cutest Owl set
The second is of a Vintage Alphabet set done in  Sign Language.
Most of you may or may not know that I am hearing impaired. I wear hearing aids in both ears and have lost a large portion of my hearing. The stamp set shows you the hand jester for each letter of the alphabet and shows the letter that corresponds with the hand jester. I have a few cards coming in the near future using the same set. I hope you enjoy them too.

  1. Always looking for masculine cards as I am in a family filled with males. I always seem to do well with cards for women, but ideas for men are few and far between. Very nice card. Love your blog.
