For the Boys....



Being the grandmother of 4 boys, I always need a card for one of them.  Sometimes all of them.  So I try and find images that will work for them.  Of course they like the no frills approach and I struggle not to put flowers or pearls on their cards.  But boys are a whole nother breed, so I try and respect their wishes.  I did, however, add a ribbon on this one.  But if you notice, not a flower in sight!

I colored the image with my brushes and Ranger Distress Inks.  This one will go in my box of cards for the boys and then when I need it, I can just go to the box and pick one.  I hope you enjoy this one.

Well that's about it for me this morning.  Have a wonderful day and no matter where you are or whatever you are doing, try and find a moment just for you and "Breathe".

Glenda, this is a perfect card for a boy. I see you were up at the crack of silly this morning. Mind you when we farmed that was our rising time too. Have a lovely day. Hugs from Scotland. Rita xx

That is a GREAT boy card! I love the shading you've done. I'm the same way about not putting some sort of embellishment on every card - but you're right, they do like it better when there is less on the card. Fabulous work!

Love your boy card! I don't often make them but a friend asked me to make one for her 13 yr old nephew who plays guitar. Was thrilled with the card but forgot to get a picture before giving it to her!!!

Hi Glenda,

This is a great card for a boy!!! You are better than me - I don't try to make "boy cards." Oh well.

Hugs,

Hey, stranger! Just caught up again--what amazing cards! I especially like this one. A certain third grader in my life would love it!
Hope all's well with you. Have a great week!
