Blog Hoppin' with Taylored Expressions


Welcome to this month's Blast from the Past blog hop with Taylored Expressions. Be sure to start the hop at Taylor's Blog so you don't miss any of the eye candy.

For my card today I reached for one of my favourite sets for masculine cards...Boys Will be Boys.

I needed a card for my brother-in-laws birthday recently so I used the ties with the coordinating sentiment then stamped Happy Birthday on the inside. The layout is TESC120. The ties are paper pieced with patterned papers from my In the Kitchen Project Pantry...so fun! I added a little stitching to help define the image then finished the card with two cream brads.

There's plenty more to see along the hop so have fun!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
