Caardvarks and g.c.d Studio Blog Hop Day 3

What great cards and projects the other girls have posted in the past 2 days.... WOW!!  I had alot of fun gretting ready for this blog hop.  The products were fantastic, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the linen textured paper and all the fun embellishments that go with it!  Here are my projects:
This gift set was made for my 16 year old daughter and features a round tin to store pens & pencils in, a clear front tin that stores 8 personalized notecards, a mini comp book and bookmark and a group of glass magnets to go inside the tin when the cards are used up.  I used paper from the Debonaire line... gorgous colors, huh?
These 2 cards were made with some of the boyish paper from the Vintage Boy line (aptly named).  Quick and easy cards for the men in your life.
The above card is made with the Shades of Black embellishment line using chipboard letters and epoxy stickers
Another card using paper from the Debonaire line.... love this stuff!!  The basketweave paper is a great background pattern, the image was stamped on a tag from the paper collection, and I cut the bottom design from the reverse side of the basketweave paper.
One last card that you may have seen from a previous challenge, but I love it!!  I used some zebra striped paper from the Debonaire collection for the background. 
Now go check out all those other great projects!  If you jumped into the middle of the hop then go back and visit the beginning first so you don't miss out!  Thanks for looking.
Your next stop on the hop is Jolene - have fun!
