Birthday Boy - Seize the Birthday


We have another challenge beginning today at Seize the Birthday!  Our sponsor is By Lori Designs who provided the images for us to use today.  Be sure and check out the blog to see all the wonderful inspiration from the DT and also our guest designer, Sherry Eckblad - and then come on over and play along.  We're using the same sketch that we had last week, but this week we need to see your masculine/guy cards.



I used some SU DP and little tag.  Added some twine and even did a little bit of stitching on this one.  Oh, and I paper pieced those jeans with some denim looking paper.

We'd love to see you play along in this weeks Seize the Birthday challenge.

Thanks for stopping by............
