Masculine Birthday

Happy Friday All!
WOW another week draws to a close!
Yep ... that snow will be flying here in Ohio before I know it!  LOL

Today I have a trio of masculine birthday cards to share.
Using scraps of patterenedpaper along the way.

Pretty easy peasy but that's how the guys like it!

This first card actually utilizes a piece of sky patterned paper
from a VERY old DCWV 12x12 paper pad.
The mountains were die cut using the a scrap of 'Halloween' paper
The Tutti Designs Happy and Birthday were used on all 3 cards.
A Martha Stewart bird punch was used to adorn the sky.

For this second card, I've again used VERY old DCWV paper
(probably from the same pack, lol) but this time a blue jean pattern.
Backed it with red card stock and die cut the Frantic Stamper
'Gear Collage' from gold metallic card stock.

And, this last card was literally a 5 minute card!
Another scrap of paper from the same DCWV paper pad
and a die cut called Memory Box 'Cottage in the Woods'
added sentiment and DONE!


So that's my THREE cards for today ...
anything more will be a PLUS for the sale boxes!
