It’s Your Birthday


I needed a birthday card for my dad, so I pulled this one out of my stash.  Even though it has some retired items on it, I still thought you’d like to see it!  I know I always need ideas for masculine cards.  Plus, I’m on a mission to use up some of this retired designer paper I have laying around!  lol!

I also haven’t used the My Way punch very much, so it seemed a perfect choice to fill that empty space!  The DSP is Western Sky, with Real Red, Whisper White and River Rock cardstock (sniff…I miss it!).  I used the Sanded in Real Red on the Real Red cardstock.  The Dotted Circle is from Think Happy Thoughts and I punched it with the 1-1/4 circle.  Then the Large and Small punches from Blue Bayou and Whisper White.  A red mini brad in the center.  The greeting is from It’s Your Birthday…a retired set now.  Really, a pretty simple card!

I have several things I’m in the middle of working on right now for swaps and design calls…except I can’t show you yet!  Our demo Round Up meeting is this weekend, so I’m trying to prepare things for that, too.  I’ll be able to share those with you next week!

Have a good weekend…I’ve been up late watching the Olympics (what is it with the judges for the Gymnastics!  USA has been RIPPED off TWICE now!)
