Quick Masculine Birthday Card


Hello friends,  I needed a quick masculine Birthday card yesterday and I knew I only had a few minutes to pull it off.  My friend Sharyn is hosting the Make it Monday challenge over at Stamp TV, so I decided to use that as my starting point. Her challenge is to add stitching to your card ( faux or real).  As you can see I went with the Faux since I needed to keep it masculine.  I used 3 different stamp sets of Gina K for my card, Birthday Labels, Fleur Di Lis, and Lots of Letters 2. Also, I incorporated 2 of my MFT stitched rectangles too.

Hope you have a terrific day!  Nanc’

Retirement Card

A very good friend and former boss of mine is having a retirement party tomorrow and this is the card I made for him.  I have the ultimate respect for this man I wish him a wonderful life filled with health and happiness.  Since he absolutely loves to golf,  I knew exactly what type of card to make for him. For those of you who know nothing at all about golf, there is no such thing as the 19th hole, it’s referring to the drinks you have after your round. LOL  I typed the inside of the card on my computer.

This card was not originally my design I got it off of pinterest.  Here is the original below.

My sky looks nothing like hers and I like her flag much better, but it was fun to make!

The website it takes me to is here.  I was unable to find the original card once I went to Julie’s blog. She is very talented!

Have a great day,


Another Birthday Card…

Happy Monday,  Well not sure there is such a thing…lol.  Hope everyone in the blogosphere had a wonderful weekend.  The card I have to post today is for 2 challenges.  The first is over at Retro Sketches and the other is for a color challenge over at The Play Date Cafe.  The colors were Rasberry, Harbour and Honey Mustard.  These colors proved very difficult for me especially the mustard.  Not my favorite card despite LOVING the sketch, but what can a girl do but keep trying!

Thanks so much for stopping in and you can always try your hand at both challenges…. I have linked them up for you!
