Another Birthday Card.....

Are you like me, always looking for a birthday card for someone you care about. Sometimes it's really difficult for me to have the time to jump off what I have going on and make a card for an upcoming birthday, so I always try and have a few put back that I can write a note inside and send it on.  The outside doesn't always say Happy Birthday and that way it can be used for other occasions.  I have several guys in my family and of course they don't want ribbons and flowers on their cards so I try to keep it simple if I can.


I used the "By the Sea" collection from Graphic 45 for my card and just did layers and buttons on the front.  There is a button with a piece of white string tied in the center on the top layer.  I just noticed that my buttons are not showing that well here.  I can see this card going along to one of my grandsons or one of the other men in my life.  I will enclose a check and write on the inside.  I still need more for the very near future so stand by for more birthday cards!

That is all from me this morning.  Take time for  you and remember to "Breathe"!

A perfect masculine card! I love that piece of designer paper that says "mermaids wanted". I can see the buttons just fine, but I know there's nothing like seeing it in real life. We viewers never know what we're missing, so it looks great to us. I recently used up all my birthday cards so I'm working on replenishing, too. Yes, it's a good idea to keep a few all occasion cards for those times you don't have one specific for the occasion.

Sounds like you have a good system going! This card is perfect for any of the 'guys' in the family. Great job and I'm sure it will be appreciated! Busy time of year for you with all the veggies coming in ... I know my daughter is on a roll with her canning too. Have a great day and by all means try to stay cool ... this heat is brutal!! Hugs from Ohio!
