Birthday

The man birthday card...difficult!  Harder for friends; easier for family.  I did find two similar stamp sets that I am going to use for a lot of man cards this year.  Today the main image and some of the background is a Hampton Arts set. It is nostalgic set that I think works well for those guy cards.  

I have two this week.  First up, my BIL is having a birthday this week, and I wanted to make him a special card. He is a super guy, great husband and father.



I hope he likes it.  It is actually one of my five favorite man cards, I really enjoyed putting this one together.

Thanks for stopping by.
