Oh those dreaded man cards.  I could sometimes just pull my hair out thinking about what to make.  A friend of mine has a birthday coming up. I have known him for 30+ years, he is an outdoors kinda guy so I am hoping he likes this card.  I know the swing is a bit young...but maybe it will remind him of more carefree days!

I am playing along at Seize the Birthday, where the challenge is anything goes with a birthday theme and the optional topping is "the great divide".

The image is from Stampendous, the sentiment is a sticker (I needed something small).  The back drops are sponged inks from Simon Says Stamp, and the tree and grassy area are colored with copics.  Thanks so much for stopping by.


  1. Absolutely wonderful card, Cat! Love your coloring & the image is perfect for the quad design!

  2. Cat, this is so beautifully colored & designed.
    Your friend will love it.

  3. Love your take on The Great Divide - makes it look like you're looking at a scene through a window. Thanks so much for playing along at Seize The Birthday :)

  4. I agree with Shirley! Love the divided panel too! Super job with our challenge and so glad you joined us at Seize the Birthday!

  5. Absolutely beautiful scene and I love how you created a 'dreamy' feel with your ink blending! Another stunning card, Cat!

  6. Wonderful card! Great desing! Have a great day and a Happy Easter!!!
