I made this masculine birthday card last week. Masculine cards are easy for me because of doing them for the VA patients. for so many years. It's a simple design but one I like a lot. I need to get some thank you cards done and my small swap group cards are also due. I think I will work on those today. We ended up going to YO for dinner to celebrate our birthdays. Have never been there for dinner. I had trout with a almond butter cream sauce. It was delicious.
Guess what I am having for lunch today.

Put your sun glasses on! I made this card as one of my swap cards for September. I am trying to use up some of my discontinued paper. Joe and I are going out for dinner on Sat to celebrate our birthdays. That's the day between our big events! You are only as old as you feel. That's my frame of mind and I plan to stick with that thought the
year!

I made this card for a September birthday. Red, white & black is always a nice color combo.

I made this birthday card for Julie. It's not Quite Navy & Pear. I am almost out of this ribbon. I'm not sure where I bought it but it is perfect with these colors.

I made this birthday card for a friend. It started out all black but I did not like that so I used white as the base. Much better. We had a great time in Nashville. There is a hugh outlet mall close to where we were staying. I enjoyed shopping and Joe people watched.

I made this as my swap card. I really like these colors together Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler with white. I am going to go play tourist in Nashville Tn. & then on to Indiana to host a birthday luncheon for Joe's Mom's 96th birthday. An added bonus is seeing my twin sister and celebrating an early birthday with her.

A friend fell and sprained her wrist. I made this card for her. I know I have a band aid stamp but could not find it. Next day there it was. I think I like the real one on the card better anyway. Saw the idea on pinterest but it was not a real band aid.

I made this birthday card for an Auxiliary member. The stamp is Hero Arts and they retired it but brought it back. It's a set of 4. The card base is Pacific Point. Not my favorite color.

This was my shoe box card for last month. I inked the stamp with markers and stamped on white card stock. It was not as inked as I wanted so I took the "pen{" point of the marker and just made light marks. Gave it texture and I liked it. The stamp set is StmpinUp Inspired by nature. It's double sided. The stamp is hugh and hard for me to use so it has not seen ink very much.
