Last month we had Duck Hunting; this month we have Bow Hunting.  I am a big fan of The Hunger Games. I have read all three books and have seen both of the movies which have been released.  Now, I realize that it is Katniss Everdeen who is the famous archer in these movies, but Gale Hawthorne did use a bow and arrow also -- though not so much in Catching Fire, the second book/movie.  But, today's image is a guy using a bow and arrow; so we're going to pretend that it is Gale!  I used my computer to create the "movie title."

For my second card, I used a new die set I recently bought.  It's a Sizzix die for a flip card, which winds up as an A2 card when folded.  What I like about this die set is that it contains dies for the patterned paper as well as the base.  So . . . no measuring!  I used the deer and long sentiment on this card.  Photo clips hold the card closed.  As you can tell, this set was made for masculine cards!

Be sure to check out the rest of the cards in today's hop.  And remember, lots of comments = more chances to win a free stamp set.

Lois, both of your cards are fabulous. I love the hunting scene on the first one. I love those sizzix dies where they have everything you need for the flip it cards.

Awesome cards - especially the Catching Fire card. I, too, read the Hunger Game series and haven't seen the second movie yet - but I will! I must invest in the Sizzix die set - very cool!
