Aloha ladies (and gents!) and happy Thursday!  

One of the things we seem to struggle with in our card making is coming up with ideas for a man's card.  Personally, I like making them, but I do have to "think" on them for a while.  My guy is pretty easy - cars!  So of course that's what I did for this challenge , which was to make a male birthday card.  

I used SCAL for the great car that I found over at  "denises scrapbooking room . What a great selection of super art work she has done - and almost all of it is free!  The frame is from a set  called 4x6 Picture Frames over at  I raised the car and sentiment with pop dots, and put on the brads"...  I will be using this card with another sentiment that says, "You make my heart race!" for Valentine's Day.  (I just put this sentiment on for the challenge...  and on the inside you could say, "I'm still so happpy you're my guy!") 


  1. I love this!! FABulous card! Beautiful colors! =)
    Hugs, SannaS

  5. Well now, how cool is this? I too fuss with masculine cards, I don't know why! Maybe because I shouldn't put foo-foo things like ribbon/lace/flowers? Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this Joanne, and what a darling sentiment : )

  6. Hi Joanne, love this mans card just right, and I nearly missed your last card too she's so cute on her cupcake, and so girlie in contrast, hope your keeping ok,

    Hugs Liz xx
