Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop!



Hello Everyone, 
Welcome to the YCU blog hop.  This hops theme is masculine cards and who are the rockin sponsors for this November hop you ask... Why that would be Paper Smooches and Simon Says Stamp Check them out if you haven't already!  They are awesome sites.

If you started at the beginning then you should have just came from Katie K.
If not then go check her out - she has some beautiful work :)

Here is today's card...

Everything on this card is from A Muse Studios except the brad and the tie.  I stamped the tie from an A Muse stamp but used My Minds Eye Hattie 6x6 paper pad for the tie.  The brad is from my stash - sorry I don't know the brand.  The sentiment and shirt is from the set called brief notes.  The circle was cut out from my spellbinders nesting circles.

Thanks for checking out my card. 
Time to pass on the love to the next blogger Jenny M
She has some great stuff too.  

Thanks for hopping with us hope you every one's cards!  Have a wonderful day :)

**I am adding a small side note.  I couldn't remember where I saw the original sketch that gave me inspirations to do this card.  Since I wanted to give credit where it's due I went thought my stash of print outs and finally found it.  The original (similar but not exact) sketch that gave me inspiration to do this card was off of Paper Smooches.**
