I always seem to have trouble making masculine cards. I was determined today to make a masculine looking card for my brother-in-law's birthday. I always liked tree stamps and especially the Lovely As A Tree set from Stampin Up. I love the mighty oak image. I thought, this is perfect. My brother-in-law is a very physically strong man so this suited him perfectly. I like how the close-up almost makes the tree sparkle (perfect for him too as he has a very charismatic nature which helps him makes friends easily). Have a great day everyone.

I received my selection of papers from Bluemoonscrapbooking today. from Graphic 45's Once Upon A Springtime Collection. Soooo sooooo pretty. I just had to make a little sign to remind me springtime is on its way. I love fairies and vintagy looking paper. I may ad a few more things to my sign, but wanted to show what I had done with the paper so far.
Not sure if this is "the one" yet, but I sure do love the way it came out. I think I may give this to my husband for Valentine's Day. I used a stamp from Hero Arts (stamped with Staz On) stamped on silver paper. All the "bling" is from Making Memories. Of course I had to had some shimmer!
