Crafty Hos Challenge

Every Sunday, the Crafty Hos post a challenge for you all to play along with.  As we were trying to come up with a topic for the challenge, the conversation kept going back to "six packs" referring to men!  Finally, it was just decided that the challenge should be to create a card depicting six packs.  You can determine this as you wish:  it can six of something on your card, it can show a man with a fabulous six pack, or (like mine), it can be beer related.  If you follow my blog, you know that I love these Gus images from  My card uses the Gus image called Marriages--Heaven and the beer image from Gus Christmas--going to town.  For the card, I used Papertrey card stock and ribbon, paper from Tuesday Mornings, a beer bottle brad from the Eyelet Outlet, colored the image with copics, and used decorative scissors to trim off the right edge.  I computer generated a sentiment that says "there's more than one way to get a six pack!"  As always, I added crystal effects on Gus' glasses.  Be sure to check out the cards that the rest of the Crafty Hos made at    And now--for my card:

This card will be entered into challenges at:
This challenge is called "Just for Men"
This challenge is "Let's Hear It for the Boys"
