Celebrate the Man In Your Life

No automatic alt text available.



It seems we all struggle with "man" cards - cards to send to husbands, fathers, sons, male teachers, etc.  When I was preparing for this swap, I browsed through the catalog and the Pieces & Patterns stamp set caught my eye.  I think it is perfect for a "man" card - no matter what his age!

Here's my card: 



I had Father's Day in mind when I created this card - we have four daughters, and I thought the four "critters" could resemble the four of them - and could use them for my husband's Father's Day card!  I think he will like it!

The four "critters" are actually fussy cut from the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper that coordinates with stamp set.  The Emerald Envy patterned paper on my card front is also from the Pick a Pattern paper.  It's quite a colorful paper pack with both images and background designs.

There are great images in the stamp set, but decided to use the designer paper this time because of the cute critters - and my four girls - and Father's Day coming up !  It worked!

I added a bit of ribbon and twirled some loops of Black Baker's Twine and also a trio of circles from the Enamel Dots package.  

 Next on our hop is Carol Payne.  Can't wait to see what she has created!
