Birthday card!

Here's another birthday card for the stash drawer.  I think it will make a good  masculine card. I never have enough guy cards in my drawer. My girls will come to raid my stash with a list of all the birthdays they have coming up that month!  Married daughter (Domestic Diva)  has a huge circle of couples friends...of course they all have families now too. They do group get togethers for all the birthdays. That is a lot of cards and gifts so if I can provide a card from my stash it helps out!
I like the bit of a grungy look this card has going. It was fun to ink the over the embossed portions of the card. I had to use a stamp finger stick as you had to rub to get the ink into the low bits.

I took one semester of typing when I was in high school so this old typewriter stamp was fun to use. Brought back memories let me tell you!

Off to make a card for Glamour Girl. She is off in Southern France, studying French language...and visiting a special fellow in Monaco! She was away on a trip around the world for 5 months, home for less then 2 months and now off to France for 2 months again. Her life is so exciting! She teaches at University and will benefit from having a second language, especially Canada's official second language.
Now to search for my Eiffel Tower stamp...

I love how you used the typewriter stamp. I have one and haven't used it yet

I remember those typewriters so well and the card brought on a bit of nostalgia! Although it has a masculine feel to it I think it would work for some of us ladies of a certain generation:O) Fabulous card.

You are definitely on a guy roll. This is another wonderful guy card and love the simplicity of it (kind of like men)!

Great card I'm loving the typewriter even if it was my least favourite class at college. It's so much easier typing on a puter especially when correcting all my typing errors!
Hugs Erika.
