For the Guys ...

Hello my friends!
Well here we are drawing the first month of 2015 to a close!  
Spring will be here before you know it!!
Although it doesn't look like it outside my window ... 
quite a lot of snow blowing around out there!  LOL!!  

This year I've been invited to do not one but TWO Springtime shows (both in April) so I'm already working towards having enough cards created for these events.
GUY cards are always requested so I'm wanting to be sure and have a nice selection available.
That is what I have to share with you today.

I decided to use the same image (from Pinterest) and design on all three cards but personalized one for Dad, one for Brother and one generic birthday card fitting for any man/boy.
The inside verse is the also the same on all three cards.

I have a few other masculine type images that I think I might do the same thing with.  By doing this I can increase my selection quickly and I think people will like the 'personalized' versions.  Time will tell!  LOL!

The 'wording' dies are all from Cheery Lynn Designs and purchased at the Dies R Us Store.
Here are the quick links for you:
There are several other word dies available ... don't forget to check them out too!

Challenges to share in:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Masculine Birthday
Open Minded Crafting Fun Challenge - NO red, NO pink

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
If you live in the 'snowy' states ... please be careful out there ... they are calling for another snow storm here in Ohio tomorrow ... possibly another 6" (or more).  Let's hope they are wrong!  LOL!
Till next time and as always . . .

A stunning Birthday card for a guy or even for a women. Loving how you did the Happy Birthday wording on the front.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

These are just gorgeous! Definitely masculine and I really love that image!! When you go to Pinterest for images, what exactly do you type in? Like for this image that you used, what did you type to find this?
I really love it!

Beautiful! I also would like to know how and where you find these images on Pinterest. I have some hunteres in my family and this would work perfect for them. Thanks!
