Pine Cones and Needles=Masculine

While I was on vacation this past week, I decided I would finally start a blog. I'm hoping to have a lot of fun and hope you'll come by often for a visit. For my first card, I need a masculine for Speedy's Friends challenge at Mark's Finest Papers. Love these pine cones and needles and they needed no coloring. It was a fun and easy card.

I do love that deckled edge for each of the four quadrants! And those forest-y images are perfectly masculine.

Congratulations on starting your own blog! You'll have so much fun. It is (almost) as addicting as making cards!

Benzi, I made a card similar to this one because I liked it so much! It'll be on my blog later tonight. I also linked back to your blog on this card.

THanks for the inspiration!!
