One For The Guys Challenge

It’s Friday and time for another Stamp Off Challenge.  This time we needed to make a masculine card.

These are always the hardest because men would probably rather have a funny card.  You know.  Many men would rather have one that has a monkey on it with some crazy (but funny) saying.  The first card Rob ever gave  me had a picture of King Kong on it.  The inside said “Razzmatazz.  Rooty toot toot.  I want to see you in your birthday suit”!  I do have to say that my boys seem to like my cards (at least they say they do) but I know they would probably rather have a funny one too.

I think the trick to making a good masculine card is to keep it simple.  This is exactly what I did for my card.

I used a new stamp set called Sorry For Everything.  You know how I love big sentiments and the word “Sorry” is super big.  Then the set has 9 other stamps that go with sorry such as “for your loss”, “I missed your birthday” and “for the loss of your furry friend”.  In this case I chose the simple one “I’m so very”.  That covers everything!

The Designer Series Paper I used is called Pick A Pattern.  It has these crazy funky designs on one side and great patterns on the other.

Let’s all go see what amazing creations Buffy and Jackie made!

Something For Baby Emory

If you read my blog you already know that I just had another granddaughter named Emory.  A couple of weeks ago we went down to meet her.  As a grandmother, can I just say, she is one of the cutest babies.  When I was there she was sleeping pretty well so that her parents got a few hours sleep in between feedings.  After I left, Emory started giving her parents a hard time.  Of course, I think it is because she misses me.  Her parents just roll their eyes.

I made this card with Emory in mind.  Her parents decorated her room in coral colors so I thought it was appropriate to make a card using Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride.  I used the stamp set called Something For Baby.  It has a set of matching Framelits called Baby’s First.  This is one of those sets that you will keep forever.  Babies are always being born and it will never go out of style.
