Love for Hubby

This March was mine and hubby's 14 year wedding anniversary, though we've been together for 23 years now. I always make him cards, but this year I was sick and couldn't make him one specifically for our anniversary. But, when I got to feeling better, it was the first card I made for the week.

My hubby never minds if I use flowers on his cards, I had to use them because I didn't have another background hexagon, so he got 2 flowers. LOL
I really like the sentiment I put on the outside...

...but the sentiment inside means so much to me!

Well, Hope this gives you some inspiration for a masculine card (maybe minus the flowers? LOL). I used SU! Six Sided Sampler and CTMH Honeycomb Flair. I used the SU! Hexagon punch to get the pieces and the SU! decorative label for the sentiment punch out on the front.

Well, that's all for now, I am officially caught up on my blog posts! I hope you have enjoyed what I've shared and I hope I've given you some inspiration in one way or another.
Blessed Be

Classic Birthday

In addition to my mom and my brother having a birthday in April, my daddy's birthday is in April as well. Usually I make him a fish, a lighthouse or something like that, but I got this stamped image from a friend and figured I'd make him a classic car card this year.

Kick Ass Birthday!

This is a cute little ass! Just for my brother, haha. He is currently stationed in S. Korea (he's in the AF) and my SIL and 2 nephews are there with him. I miss them all so much. We don't talk as much as I'd like to, but I make sure to send them their b-day cards every year, no matter where they are!
This time, my brother gets a kick ass cool card from his bad ass sissy. haha

Hummingbird Birthday

My Ma's birthday is this month so I had to come up with a card that's just pure beauty. Seems that all the women in our family love hummingbirds, so I decided to make her this one.

Missing You, Brother

My youngest brother lives half way across Country from hubby and I. I miss him a lot. We used to have so much fun together. Now, we hardly talk at all. He works a lot, but I still wish we could talk more. Every now and then I send him a letter and a card, he loves my cards, so I hope he'll like this one.

I used 2 different embossing folders for this card, and mini staples to hold the flag down.
 Here's the sentiment inside the card. I accidentally made my watermark on it too big, but had already saved the pic, so couldn't go back, LOL It says "you're never more than a thought away.". I think of him often, I wonder if he thinks of me?!

Cards that are quick and simple, yet sophisticated or vintage looking are really easy to make. Once you have a general idea of your layout and your supplies, or just your supplies and making a thought turn into a card, you could make a ton of these small ones at once to have on hand for family or friends.

I hope you like this one, come back soon to see more because I have some more to share!
