Hello :o)
I thought I'd never get this posted!  Blogger just wouldn't work using Chrome... got fed up watching the whirring thing (technical term lol) while it tried to load, and then gave up and tried through Explorer, seems to be working so far.  I seem to remember that I originally swapped over to Chrome because Explorer wouldn't work for Blogger though!

Anyway!  I bought some goodies from Craft Stash recently, so here's a card using some of them.  I'm really pleased with the stitched scalloped dies - they're great sizes, this one is the 3rd largest die (on a 6" square card), they'll come in very handy I think.  Every now and then I get an urge to sand down some core'dinations cardstock, and I think it works really well with embossing, especially for men's cards... I never seem to have enough male cards even though I really like making them!
I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - going dotty
The Male Room - stars
Cute Card Thursday - dies & punches
My Time to Craft - masculine
Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
