50th Birthday Card

So…... Hubby comes homes and casually asks if I have or could make a card for a colleague's 50th Birthday. "Sure" I say, "when do you need it?" He says "ummmmm like tomorrow!?" LOL!!! So I race to my craft room and whip up this card. I have to be honest and tell you I find it a struggle to make masculine cards. I mean you can't put a cute stamped image, frills or glitter! That's my favourite thing about making cards. So I just tried to keep it simple but still co-ordinate colours and paper themes. Since this was a "rush" I didn't get time to film it or take pictures of the different steps. It was also hard to get good lighting to take a picture of it. It was dark out and my craft room doesn't lend itself to good lighting at night. But I wanted to share it with you anyway to show you that sometimes simple is just as nice!

So there you go, just a quick card and quick post for today! It's raining like crazy here and the power just flickered so I'll go and get out the candles!
Chat at you later,
