Boy Challenge Complete!

I have successfully finished my challenge of making 25 boy birthday cards, which I will send to the soldiers.
I have posted several different sets and now I am going to post my final 8 that I finished up last night. I used a bunch of brads, buttons, twine, craft cord, a few with the Sew Easy, a bunch of Cricut cartridges, sentiment stamps and tons of paper and glue!

This cute little dump truck is from Boys Will Be Boys and I think it looks good with the black and red contrasting on the brads, twine and paper.
Another cut from Boys Will Be Boys--that cartridge is so simple to layer and turns out really cute. I accidentally cut him a little too big for his rectangle (which I already had glued on the paper from DCWV All About Boys), but I still like how he turns out. A little cord and buttons finish the look.

This is probably one of my favorite cards and it is so simple. Who would have thought a cupcake and crossbones would be so great together? I love this cut from Rock Princess, with some D'Vine Swirls and red Stickles.
I made these cuts from Simply Charmed and I think it turned out so cute. I embossed the black paper with Traffic Jam and pop dotted the pizza over the hot dog and hamburger. Ssshhh, don't tell but I cut my red squares too big and they wouldn't fit if I didn't overlap them!

I made the cut from Toy Story with the three aliens and split them into two different cards and used the same sentiment, which is from Lyrical Letters.

I was shocked that this little "It's Your Birthday" actually cut out...not only once, but twice! I cut it three times and only one didn't work, which never happens for me!

Another quick card using Toy Story and DCWV All About Boys stack. Add a button and some yellow twine and it's complete!

I made this green and orange dinosaur from Create a Critter and used the DinoMite sentiment in combination with some stamps. I love how the orange, blue and green work together.
And my last button and craft cord of the challenge!

I am so excited how these turned out, but I am soooo glad that it's over! I am ready for some pink, glitter and ribbon!
