HB2U

March 11th...a special day...it is d's birthday!!! I have to admit making masculine cards is something that I really have to work hard at...I tend to gravitate to girlie colors and embellies. Wouldn't you say that blue and grey are masculine? The papers are from one of my favs right now, Amy Butler's Lotus line. I've been hoarding the Making Memories metal tiles for awhile...

'd' wanted to share his "card wall"...isn't that sweet? This is in his home office...makes me smile whenever I see it :)

Make sure you check back tomorrow, it's my day over at 365 Cards!

Just a smidge of enabling...did you check out my new enabling button ---->

Crop Chocolate, it's a something that I picked up from my making memories newsletter. Oy vey...yesterday they had the Making Memories Embellishment Center for only $44.99....tempting...soooo tempting but I didn't hit the "buy" button :)

  16. What a great idea- do you just have string between two tacks? Or something more involved to hang those up??

  17. oh, this is perfectly masculine, Amy! love your use of those tiles (I have some of those stashed somewhere) and the big scale of the polka dots and the ribbon makes it all the more approriate. love that we get to peek at his card wall...how tender!

    HB2U, 'd'...Amy's a dream!

  18. I agree with you, the masculine ones are so hard for me. It's just easier to do the cute frilly ones, lol! Love the colors you chose!

  20. The card is perfect! The colors and the touch of metal make it masculine. Not all man cards have to have a deer or an eagle on them!

    Love the card wall!! Hmm...this one sounds like a keeper!
