Guy's Cards and More Blog Candy!

It's Crackerbox Palace Thursday and today I am sharing some cards I made for the guys featuring stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning this week’s blog candy are below.

But first- the winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the  cards last Thursday is ………………………………………….Lynn! Here is her winning comment: “Oh my goodness!!! I must go check out Crackerbox Palace and become a follower! I adore that image on your first card! SO cute and the sentiment is perfect! Fantastic card! The second card is just stunning and beautiful! Love the different colored squares! Two wonderful creations! Lynn”
Lynn, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want, so we can get you the stamps you have won.  And remember you can win another CBP stamp of your choice simply by posting a card you made with the stamps you won to your blog or Splitcoast Stampers gallery and sending us a link. 
My first card above started with a background created using the pillow top technique that I learned here from Gina K. It is so easy and I just love the look. Then I just added an awesome cowboy silhouette and a happy birthday banner to make a great guy’s card. 

My second card also features a Crackerbox Palace cowboy silhouette stamp. Did I mention I love silhouette stamps? And CAS cards? I started with a masculine dp background, then added the barb wire border, the cowboy silhouette and sentiment for an easy but fun card for a special guy.

So would you like to win the fun stamps featured on one of today’s cards? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:

 1.) We have decided that becoming a follower on both blogs is going to be something we would prefer you do but not a requirement.  My blog is here and the Crackerbox Palace blog is here. 

2.) Leave a comment on either my blog or the Crackerbox Palace blog on the Thursday blogpost featuring CBP stamps.  If you leave a comment on BOTH blogs, you will be entered twice in the drawing.   The deadline to leave a comment will be the following Wednesday at Noon CST. Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments and he or she will win the featured stamp(s). You must send me ( or Crackerbox Palace (  an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you. If we do not hear from you within two weeks after we announce your win, and we can’t reach you through a blog, your prize will be forfeited.  And if you post a card to your blog or to Splitcoast Stampers with the stamps you won and send a link to Crackerbox Palace, you will win another Crackerbox Palace stamp of your choice!!

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenge at Party Time Tuesday and the challenge at Creative Craft to make a mono-chromatic birthday card.

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen

I love your cards, because anything with a cowboy image or theme is something I enjoy making! Great silhouette images!

Gorgeous cards and I like those cowboy silhouette images a lot. They bring back many great memories of my Dad doing rodeos. Silhouette stamps are so versatile... you can make any card with them and get nice results each time.
Oh yes and congrats to Lynn on winning!
