My Uncle Clint recently had surgery.  I’ve been thinking about him alot lately and wanted to let him know he was in my thoughts.  So I made him this card :

 

          I know it’s not really manly, but I thought it was pretty – It uses the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp set, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow CS, chocolate chip, mellow moss, and sage shadow ink, and the scallop edge punch. I stamped the branch on the envelope as well. I stamped the inside with a nice sentiment from the same set.        

                                                    
We’ll be making this card at my Stamp-A-Stack later this month! 

Hope you’re having a great week!

I don’t know about you, but I find it really hard to design a birthday card for men.  This is a design I cased from stamp? on Splitcoaststampers.  I thought it was pretty close to a masculine card even though my dh says it’s kind of cutesy!   Oh, well, I guess we do what we have to do. . .  . .

Manly Bday Card?

Manly Bday Card?

 

I also stamped the packages on the envelope!  I’ll be giving this card to either my dad-in-law or bro-in-law later this month!  I hope they like it.  Inside, I embossed  the message  ” Live, Laugh & Love  happy birthday”

Okay, so I’m completely in love with the current promotion!  Spend $50 get a free Sale-A-Bration item!  What could be better?   So, my first SAB order came in with of course, FREE STUFF!   One of my new sets is the Botanical Blooms-  I love this set!! So, of course, I had to pull it out and ink it immediately.   I really love how this card came out.  I  used the certainly celery ribbon from the SAB ribbon bundle (ALSO FREE!), the SAB Delicate Dots Designer Series Paper (AGAIN, FREE!),  the new eyelet punch,  Whisper White CS, Sahara Sand CS, So Saffron CS, and a So Saffron brad (part of the soft subtles brads).
