Blog Hop!

It's time! It's time! What time? Time for the monthly Blog Hop, of course!
If you're just arriving and would like to start at the beginning, here is the link for the Christine, the first person in the hop:
Scrapping With Christine
If you're following along with the hop, you should've come from Sandy's blog (It's a Family Affair). Her layout is absolutely beautiful!
For this month, I decided (at the last minute) to do something a little different. I decided to make two cards to show how easy it is to use the same or similar supplies, but make two completely different cards.
The card on the right is one I made for one of the attorneys, that had decided to leave the firm I work at.
The one on the right is one I made for a friend who is getting it off the Army. He's happy to be leaving (bittersweet, most likely) and I wanted something that would make him laugh.  The freedom tag will hopefully do just that, as I hope he is a little relieved that he will "never have to look at another piece of military gear for a long time." Haha

The tricky part here is that I don't often make "masculine" cards, but what I tend to do is distress the card with sandpaper and paint. I also tend to use a lot of "boy" colors, like brown blue, black, grey, and green. The bling was added when I asked my sister what she thought. After all, I didn't want it to be too dark.
Here is the next blog in the hop. It's an artsy layout by Majken (Choco Scrapaholic). I can't wait until you see it!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this blog post and I can't wait until next month.Until next time, take care! :)
