SHOPPING OUR STASH #383 - Happy Birthday Dude!

 Hello and welcome crafty friends!
Donna is your hostess this week at
SHOPPING OUR STASH and she's thrown a curve ball right
in the midst of the Christmas-card-making-frenzy.
This week we want to see your birthday cards for the men in your lives!

 Here's what I came up with:

here's the inside:

 I did have help with my design, as I cased this card while perusing
Pinterest for ideas. (Not sure who made it as the link takes me
to a web store that sells the stamps, not the artist, so thank you
whomever you are!) I've had these tree stamps for at least a couple years, and
I think this may only be the second time using them. Glad I rediscovered
them while searching for something else, because I want to make a
bunch more cards like this now. LOL!

So now it's your turn. Put a brief hold on those holiday cards and
create a birthday card for a guy! Be sure to link up at
Shopping Our Stash so we may admire it! For more fabulous
male-themed cards, please do visit my teammies to see what
they've come up with.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

  1. Hi Chris, due to my comment winner (Retro Rubber 100) being based in the UK, she has elected to only receive the stamp set and so I pulled another number out of the hat and you came out - WHOOP. I have a grab bag, that has some NBUS and some retro (gently used items). If this sounds good to you, message me via my blog comment form with your postal details and I will send it to you when I get back to NYC. https://hamnmuledesigns.blogspot.com/.
