Belated Birthday (Again)!

I started off my year SO well with getting the cards made that I needed for January.  But this month.  Well, I did start it off well but it's not ending up that way.  

I totally forgot about a card for my nephew.  And of course it would have to be a masculine card that I needed or I could have just gone to my stash and picked one out.  But no, I don't have any masculine ones on hand.  I should make a bunch of them.  I keep making feminine cards!!!  I need to go through my stamps and pull out all the ones that can be used for males and just make some cards!!!  The next birthday coming up is my younger sister's and I actually have her card ready.  SO I'm no longer behind, I'm current!!!  Hopefully next week I can find some time to add a few masculine cards to my list of stamping "to do's!"

Here is his card.  I used the Stampin' Up! "Wanted" set for the horse and the "Faux Bandanna" technique.  I LOVE that technique.  And it fits well with the masculine theme!!!  But you can only get by making so many bandanna cards before everyone will guess what the next birthday card will be!!! LOL  

I thought it would be fun to angel the card stock instead of just going straight across.  And while I was doodling on the bandanna part I thought I would add some faux stitches as well.  I am happy with the way it turned out. Maybe because there was no tree in this card!!! LOL  I'm still being taunted by that tree set!!!  It's a real challenging set for me for some odd reason.  But I shall be the victor!!! LOL

I have a couple fun quick projects coming up here on my blog so stay tuned!

Thank you for visiting my blog today,

I am low on masculine cards also, I find them very hard to make. Your card is wonderful, love it!

Hi, Your card is so artistic as it just shouts 'masculine card', and only someone with intuitive artistic capabilities could have made it.
I have copied and pasted your URL into a word document to remind me to come back and look at your other cards, as I am just 'passing through' today. I have seen someone else who seems to have your ability, (Paula). I am just starting a new card business Send My Card or
I would love to add cards like yours in the handmade section in the future if my business does well (as you can tell if you do look at the site -- it is too early and has not got off the ground yet). I will be back to read your blog in a few weeks.
Best wishes. Louise
