Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Thank you.
I'm heading off to bed, but thought I'd check in. Great challenge, Karen. Looks like a lot of fun. Thanks. I'll plan to play in the morning. Brain is a bit too foggy tonight after doing Jen's 5 challenges today and working on my Nov. Christmas cards - not done with those yet, though.

I woke up early and made the mistake of checking out today's Inspiration picture -- then I couldn't go back to sleep, trying to get inspired. The leather tags brought the Faux Leather technique to mind, so I ran with it! Here's my card -- http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...11567&cat=3093
Good one, Karen - I used a mulberry bg from Son Impressions - stamped it with Colorbox Creamy Brown on Creamy Carmel; faux stitching around it and it really does look like leather IRL. I think this may be a tad too busy!
I had to do this one, as I had tried the faux leather look a while back and couldn't figure out how to use it. So I made some tags and used those cool colors they had in the examples for background. The colors, tags and buckles are what I noticed when I viewed the inspiration piece, so that's what I went with. As I needed a card for ds's friend so I personalized with my alpha set. Tag you are it, Zach
Here's mine, I got home last night and looked at the challenges this morning. I have christmas on the brain and thought of santas leather buckle right away. It just worked out that I was able to combined it with one of fridays challenges.tfl~
This was a great inspiration piece, there are so many ways to go with this one. I had a lot of fun making my card, and it turned out exactly as I hoped. I've been loving everyone's cards, and have gotten tons of ideas for masculine cards. Thanks for sharing, and for looking.
