Good morning.  My card today is my DT card for IAAS where the remit is to use texture on your project.

Please scroll down to previous post if you are looking for my CCC card.

My Card

5 x 7" Kraft base card - Papermania
kraft card - Papermania
Argyle embossing folder  - Die'sire Crafters Companion
bronze corrugated card - stash
wide jute ribbon - Hobbycraft
bakers twine
button from stash

I think I have achieved the texture with the additions to my card so this is another male card for my box.  I never have enough cards for men readily available so this year I decided I would remedy this and whenever possible make a male card.

Please pop over to the blog and see what my teamies have made.

Thankfully yesterday's snow only lasted until about lunch time and didn't settle. I'm keeping fingers crossed because February can be quite a bad month for snow around here.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
