Happy Birthday Bryan

Good Morning.  I hope everyone is having a good weekend.  Today is the last day of my vacation.  Tomorrow it is back to work.  I had a nice vacation.  Unfortunately I didn't get as much done as I wanted but it was nice.  Yesterday I spend the day stamping with friends.  I always enjoy those days.

Today is the Stempeltraume challenge.  This weeks theme is to make a Male card.  The timing is perfect for me because my Nephew's Birthday was Thursday and this was the card I made for him.  Like so many others, I have problems making card for men.  I bought this truck from Fred, She Said.  I wanted to make it look old.   Pull out all your Male themed stamps and play along!! 

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Creative Inspirations - Sketch - I was looking for a sketch like this to make this card.  I really liked this layout.

Anything Goes - 3 Layers - With Male cards I tend to put alot of layers to make up for the fact there are no frilly embellishments.

Simple Doodles - Celebrate - Birthdays are a great reason to Celebrate!

Stamps R Us - Male Card -  I'm glad that someone else thought this was a good theme this week!!  I just found this blog and I think I am going to like it.

Paper Romance - Metal - I have the clasps on the corners and the round clip on this card.

Creative Belli - Round and Metal - I have brads to hold the corners and the round clip.

Ellephantastic - Male theme - YEAH....I don't make many male cards so I am really happy that this is the theme this week.

Secret Crafter - Blue and Cream -Both of these colors are in my DP.  

Create 4 Fun- Birthday card - I can't believe my Nephew is 26 years old.  It makes me feel old!

Thanks for visiting and looking at my card.  I appreciate it.  I also appreciate all the kind comments.  They keep me smiling.
