Happy Birthday 2 You!

Thank Goodness It's Friday!

So, how do you like my new blog look? I made it myself...with NO help I might add...LOL!! I wanted a fresh, clean I chose a white background with a colorful header. I really love it! I used digi papers and elements from Raspberry Road Designs.

Oaky, on to my card for today. My hubs celebrated his birthday the other day and I made him this card...oh and his favorite supper too of course...LOL!
The Cutting Cafe' has the most wonderful background stamps, so I chose this dotty one. I printed it on a cream colored paper and changed the color to dark brown. You can find out how to do that HERE. I also used a circle stamp as can find it HERE.
I used my star burst Nesties (they look manly to me) and my new Cuttlebug dies for the love you and xoxo. I used the same Kraft card stock to cut these out as I used for the base of the card. Lastly, I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border (I think that looks manly too) and then added a bit of jute and I was finished.
I used to be so afraid to make guy cards, but now I feel like I've really mastered the art! LOL! My hubs really liked his card and his special supper I made for I guess all in all he had a good birthday! Oh and the boys each gave him a card too.....they are finally growing up enough to get there own help from Mama! I must be doing something right! LOL!

Thanks for the visit, have a wonderful day! HUGS!

Pin It!
