Masculine Birthday Card

This week is turning into a Masculine Cards week!  Maybe I should do another series on Masculine Cards….hmmmm….it’s a thought, bu I don’t think I can commit to that yet, though.  Because!!!!  My new catalog order (The BIG one!) is due to arrive on Friday.  oooooWEEEE, can’t wait to get my hands on all those goodies, who know what’s going to happen in my stamp room!!?? 

There is a delicate balance going on here, though.  My little kids just tracked out of school (they go back on July 9) and my big kid finishes up on Thursday.  So work and stamping have to be fit in between time with them, hanging at the pool, swim team, dance recitals and rehearsals and anything else we have going on!  Is your summer in full swing yet? 

Today’s card was for my dad (his birthday was last week) and I used a few new Stampin’ Up items on it.  Can you spot them?

  • 126940 Alhambra Wheel, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Basic Black

    LOVE this card! I do think a masculine card series would be very helpful in the future. Summer is in full swing here. My brother and his 3 kids are visiting, though the weather is not cooperating for swimming and being outside. Rain, rain, rain is all we have had since he got here.

    What a handsome masculine card! I love how the shape of the Oval Accents Bigz Die matches the shape on the wheel. Such a nice card that I want to CASE.

    Personally speaking, you could post a new video every day on SN and it wouldn’t be enough. Having said that – you are so good to us and you deserve to take all the time off that you want to spend with your family (not that you need my permission, of course). :) LOL

    Kimie, you are too much! You know my dearies at SN come FIRST! Well, I guess my family comes first, but you all come SECOND, how is that? :)

    We will take second and love it! :) LOL

    Kristie, sending good thoughts your way for no more rain for a while! :)
