The Crazy Crafters April Blog Hop - Masculine

Hi Everyone
Welcome back for another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! If you've just left Stop Number 5, Sue Wdowik at Nigh Nigh Birdie then you are in the right spot. The full lineup is below in case you lose your way. 
I get a tad excited at the end of each month as we prepare for the new blog hop, and here's a simple but striking card style I've had on my 'must try that' list.
Get Well - Perfectly Penned Stamp Set, This & That DSP
Often people say "male cards are the hardest to make" but why I wonder? What would a card from Mars really look like? hehehe What you really want is a card that your Man or male recipient looks at and appreciates the love and care that went into making it, something that will then go "straight to the pool room".  Well how about I leave those tricky MEN questions to the experts and just focus on what I do know and thats CARDS! This card was made especially for a dear work friend that recently was not so well, but is now on the mend.

Carolina's Circle Card Tutorial:
Cut at least x25 1" Inch circles from any DSP pack. Using a scrap piece of cardstock (2" x 5 1/4") Tombow glue down the middle so that you can layer the middle column first. Be sure to start from the bottom, then overlap the circles until you reach the top. Repeat for the sides, interlocking as you go.  Trim your circles down and viola!
Retro Fresh DSP
I enjoyed making this card so much I went to town on it with other DSP's!
