Here are the cards I made with "Gears to you" and "Gear Up"

These are great for masculine cards.

The first card was stamped on tangerine tango and pool party paper although it looks like it was sponged.  That is what I call easy peasy.  The second I decided to pop everything up.  I chose these colors because my husband races dwarf cars and this reminded me of the color of his car, only his car has white on it instead of black.  With both cards I used the Mark's Finest Paper stamps called "Classic Dad".


Here's the Design Team:

Come on back tomorrow for more creativity.
