Masculine Fall Birthday

Happy Last Monday in October Everyone!!

Today I have a quick card I created yesterday to cover a few challenges.  The Anything Goes/Masculine challenge at 613 Avenue Create ...add a charm or tag at the International Art & Soul Challenge blog... Fall Colors over at the Dare2BArtzy Blog ... add a charm or tag at the Moving Along With the Times Blog ... All Creatures Great & Small at the Simon Says Monday Challenge and Animals for the Southern Girls Challenge.



I can never have enough masculine birthday cards in my stash
and I think this sentiment is a perfect phrase for any hard working soul
(man or woman!).  If there's ever a day you should be able to rest & relax,
it should be on your birthday!  Am I right!!!

I had two WHITE Spellbinder leaves laying on my work station
so I decided to give them some fall color by sponging on some Tim Holtz oxide inks.
Spritz them with water to help them blend a bit then when dry added
some Crystal Glaze to the top.


Yvonne Creations - Dies - Reindeer

Nuvo Crystal Drops in Fall colors was used as an accent.

I hope you've enjoyed today's share!
Now I must get back to working on projects for this weekend's
craft show.  I'm running out of time!  Eeeks!  LOL

Thanks for stopping in ... have a great week ahead!
As Always . . .

I have a hard time with masculine as well, but this is fantastic Darlene! I love the background, those wines are fantastic and the little bits of bling are so fun! Your autumn scene of deer in the woods is amazing, and that sentiment really is perfect! A great card for any occasion! hugs :)
