manly men

Hey there! 

Its the day before Father's Day and all through the house, all creatures were stirring even the computer mouse. 

Yeah, I don't know where that came from.  Anyway do you have your Father's Day cards done? 

Me neither. 

I will be seeing my dad on Monday.  And I thought we were going to see my FIL tomorrow but that plan has changed.  So here I thought I would have today to make him a card but now I'll have to mail it and it will be late. 

I don't have anything made yet.  I had the idea to go through my pics of manly cards for ideas and thought maybe you would like some ideas too.  So lets look together shall we?

I had made this for a birthday card but if your man is a gamer it would be fun. 

Lovely as a Tree and watercoloring with ink in the lid of the pad.

Season of Friendship and Sincere Salutations

Lovely as a Tree and Wonderful Favorites (retiring).  I think these were last years Father's Day cards.

Angler and Woodgrain Background.  Not sure about the words. 

Lovely as a Tree again and God's Blessings (retiring). 

Lovely as a Tree again and Sincere Salutations. 

Lovely as a Tree........just kidding.  D is for Dog. 

I think this is Angler again.  I used Crystal Effects on the one fish.  Now he is all slimy looking. 

Branch Out.

These are the Father's Day treats I made for the Ronald McDonald House last year.  Does your dad have a sweet tooth?

For the guitar player.  This uses the Neutrals Patterned DSP

Even more Lovely as a Tree and the square lattice embossing folder

Growing Green

Woodgrain background and A Word for You.  Leaves #2 die.

I'm sure I missed a few.  If you look over here on the left in the "categories" column you can click on a set name or occasion and see if something inspires you.  I think I'm going to use some elements from a few of these and make a new card.  I'll show you what I come up with. 

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to give some love to the men in your life. 

Blessings, b.

Beth, even after all these years I STILL have a soft spot for Lovely As a Tree...and I love these cards...your watercoloring is great, I need to try that technique yet again.
Hugs, Chris
