The House That Stamps Built: Anything Goes

               Continuing with the January theme of Anything Goes at The House That Stamps Built:


 I wanted to make a fun fold card this week.  I have been trying to build my
stash of masculine cards especially birthday cards, so I dug through my papers
and have been using up scraps from many years ago.  I paper pieced 
Repeat Impressions: Hot Air Balloon Cluster and added  Happy Birthday.
Join our weekly challenge, you might just 
be the lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the
 $25 Repeat Impression's  gift certificate. you don't have to use
Repeat Impression stamps but an extra chance if you do.  
Drawing is the first Wednesday every month.

A few fun challenges:
Use Your Stuff #414 -Everything was from my stash,
patterned paper over 20 years old 2/1
SSC249 2/5

The Card Concept #147 I was inspired by the colors and 
masculinity of the card 2/1

Very cool fun fold, Donna! This one looks like something I could actually do. Great job on making a masculine card! I need to make more of them myself.

I love paper piecing, it’s a good way to use scraps and not having to spend time coloring. It’s a fun fold. The card is fit for a man, though I’d describe it as gender neutral, which is even better when in need for a last minute card.

Great paper piecing and I love the fold you've used.

Thanks for joining us at the Use Your Stuff Challenge.
