CYS: Masculine with a die cut!

Happy Wednesday!

Today's post is creating a card for the Challenge Your Stash card group.
And for the second time - in a row - 
I have a masculine card on my blog!

Our hostess this month, Maggie, 
asked us in the CYS group to create a card using
1.  A masculine theme and 
2.  had to inclue a die cut anywhere.

This was my take!

This card, to me, represents my husband and I.
He always pick me up when we were teenagers dating 
and we'd go star-gazing at a nearby lake.

We were so young
and dating in high school and broke!
So it was always a joy to spend quality time with each other,
talking on the real phone or doing things like watching
for falling stars - it didn't cost a thing other than to fall in love :)

The dies I've used are the border die and cutting out the critters/star,
which is brushed with wink of stella for some extra glitter.

And that's it!
This card will go to my husband - he's getting a lot of cards lately ♥

I'll add this to the very talented Kathy Rac's The Daily Marker 30 Day
as this was colored today and created today!

Big hugs, bigger blessings~


  1. This is so sweet, Kelly. I can just see the two of you sitting by the lake stargazing! I don't think that happens very often nowadays!
