For The Boys Blog Hop

Hi Everybody!
Welcome to the For the Boys Blog Hop!  We all know how hard it can be to create guy/boy themed projects, so this hop will help you with that!  You'll find tons of inspiration for the men and boys in your life!!

If you came here from Jenny's  blog, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon this Blog Hop, make sure to head over to Jenny's blog so that you see the full hop from the very beginning.

I have several boys I need to make cards for so I was excited to take part in this hop! I used a Grunge stamp set from Stampin' Up to make the background. Then I cut Silver Cardstock into lengths for the body of my wrenches. Used punches to create the open end and the other end.

I love Punch Art and my hubby knew exactly what these were so I guess I succeeded! I stamped You're Amazing on the inside. That was also a Stampin' Up stamp. I know, I know, I sell Close To My Heart, but I do love Stampin' Up as well!! Thanks for stopping by today and check out the prizes! Be sure to leave a comment on everyone's blog and be a follower if you aren't all ready. You won't want to miss anything by these creative people!
