FTL 80 Birthday Boy

Lots of birthdays this month so I've been busy making more birthday card and one of them had to have a masculine vibe for my dad.

A very basic card but I think the colour combo works well and the diamond background stamp (Practicing Creativity) adds a little something.  Buttons always make a card more fun and interesting.  No frills, no ribbon or bling so I think that makes it masculine enough. 

Here on the home front we are still recovering.  I actually ended up back in bed with a fever this morning and not feeling well at all.  My lovely mother-in-law came by to take my laundry home with  her so that it was one less thing I had to worry about and my dear hubby has put on a lovely pot of soup for dinner.  How blessed am I???  The only downer is that we were suppose to have my son's birthday party with extended family tonight but of course because we haven't been feeling well no one wants to risk it...nor would some of us have any fun feeling the way we have.

  1. This is perfect for a masculine that background stamp :) yes, buttons make everything sorry to hear you're still under the weather...sounds like something nasty is going around...I wonder if it's hit our school...we'll see Monday :) Remember, clocks "Spring forward" tonight :)
