A manly card

My brother and my birthdays are just 5 days apart...
Growing up that meant joint parties,
And half the presents??
He he, no, I doubt that!
Now we live on opposite sides of the country, and only get to see each other
Every few years.
Today I made him a birthday card.
I don't do many men's cards, but this one was fun!
Plus I got to use my new "old jalopy" die from Tim holtz
I know it's a die that's been around for a while,
But it's new to me for sure!
I think maybe ill be doing more manly cards in the future!
I'm sure he's not reading this post, but happy birthday Russ!

Entering this into:
Card makin mamas: It's birthday time
Simon says stamp challenge: Use an arrow (I used two!)
Clear it out challenge: Happy birthday (must use two ribbons)
Craft room challenge: For a man
Anything goes: Make it manly

  6. Fabulous job on the masculine card, they are hard for me to do as well. I have never seen that die before, your use of it was great against the vintage paper thanks for joining us at Clear it Out for the Birthday card challenge using your ribbon stash.
