masculine cards...... ugh!!


Hello stampin friends, I made it back this week!! woot woot! Our weather here as been beautiful and we are doing a lot of camping but I did manage to get a couple of cards done, this one is a card I made for our pastor for his birthday, i have such a hard time trying to do male cards!! I think I need to invest in more manly stamps, I dont know but they sure are a challenge for me! So let me know what you think of this one I did.
I dont know if I have mentioned I am in the process of opening my own daycare, few more things to do before I send everything in to the state! I am pretty excited, I wish I would of gone to college for teaching instead of nursing, but since I didnt I have decided day care is the next best thing, I just love the lil ones :D
I hope you enjoy the card! leave me your comments and I will be sure to check out your blog too. Happy stampin til next time hugz n blessings

Hi Renee! Hope you are well, always so nice to get a comment from you. Envious to hear you have been camping - mmmm summer camping.

This card is so cute - hey a cute ute! Oh we call vehicles like this a "Ute" (utility vehicle) hence the beaut ute...boy thing. Frankly I like the luxury of 4 doors, seat warmers that Mummy cars have!

Chat soon xxxx

Pastor Jim says, "Thanks for the card! Ya know, I was thinking to myself, 'Wow, what a masculine card for a stampin' produced one."

Renee, Mike Elzinga concurs. "It really captures the raw essence of testosterone, it almost oozes sweat," he said. Did you color that in with various shades of axle greese, blood, and grass stain?
