Masculine Birthday

Hello again ...
I have a second card to share with you today and since
I just realized the challenge I've been wanting to
play all week ends in just a couple of hours, this was truly
a 'quicky' card.

The challenge I'm referring to is the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge
and their theme this week is . . .

Thank goodness for die cuts because without them I would have never
been able to get this card made & posted so quickly ... literately 15 minutes!
(To create the card ... takes me twice that long to write my post!  lol ... Go Figure!)

I have an OLD stack of 6x6 cuts from various Stampin' Up designer papers
so I quickly thumbed through them and came up with this double sided panel
for my background.

In my stash of dies I found this Impression Obsession Truck (DIE218)
Impression Obsession - Dies - Classic Truck

from the Dies R Us Store found HERE.
Also my Tutti Designs 'Happy' and 'Birthday' can also be found at the DRU store.
They come in two sizes which is really convenient!!
And I think this old Frantic Stamper 'Gear Collage' was the perfect accent
to my 'manly' birthday creation.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you're having a fabulous start to your week!

As always . . .


  1. Wow, Darlene! Speedy creation of an awesome masculine card. Those gears are really the perfect touch. I love the grey you've used behind them and behind the truck. It pulls attention to the grey in your background Designer Papers (great choice of patterns, btw). Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  10. Good morning, Darlene! Guess I didn't see this one yesterday. It's as handsome in it's masculine way as your other card is gorgeous and feminine. Leave it to you to have, not just the truck, but the gears to go with it. Awesome card!
