It's a Not So Macho Masculine Card Blog Hop!

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's "Not So Macho Masculine Card" Blog Hop! If you hopped here by way of Linda's blog, then you're in the right spot. If you'd like to start from the beginning and become eligible for great prizes, then click here. My contribution to the terrific GRAND PRIZE is my favorite Starfire Glitter.  You can use it on practically everything and it has such a pretty shimmer.

Both of my cards are made with an awesome set called 1900 Cars, which is on sale this month! It has five images and four sayings.  Here is the first one:

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and watercolored using dye inks and reinkers. Here is the second card I made:
Again, I stamped in Tuxedo Black ink and watercolored.  My sentiments are embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.  Click each photo for a close-up and a clearer picture! Directions and supplies are listed at the SNS website here.
