BIL Birthday



I know I've brought up masculine cards before, right? Well...there is a stamp set out there that is perfect for the guys. It's called "Let's Hear it for the Boy" by My Favorite Things (just in case you didn't already know that *wink*). When I saw it...I knew I had to have it. It certainly helps with the cards for the guys. There are many more images than what I've used here, so if you'd like to see them...click on the link above. For my card, I used some of my Blush BasicGrey paper to paper-piece the clothing for my guy, and a small piece of Scarlet's Letter for the TV. The ribbon is the new wide grosgrain from SU. I used Vintage Brads for my hardware, and my Stardust pen where I wanted to add a little sparkle.

Thanks for visiting!!

*I thought I'd add that I'm not the beer-drinking type, but my brother-in-law is. I'm all about trying to make a card that the receiver can relate to...even if it's not necessarily my way.
