Happy Birthday Dad!

Just wanted to share a card with you that I made for my Dad's 87th birthday this year.   I am only about a month late posting it to my blog.  Sort of a simple card, but never want to overdo the masculine cards.  I almost always go to my staple for male cards....wood paper.  You all know where you can find this at right?   Yep,  McMahon Five Designs store.  It's a life saver for those of us that can't seem to muster up a way to make a card look manly on our own.  I am typically a very girly, feminine card maker, so this is pretty important to me when I am in need of a card for a man or even a boy.  I never used to make cards for my Dad or for any of my family.  Just thought they wouldn't like them I guess.  Come to find out, they love them, and now it's all they ever want : )


Thanks for dropping in for a quick peek.  I will be back next week to share something else I have been working on.  Don't forget to stop by for a look.  It will be with some great new-release images.  I'm excited to share with you.  I think you will love them too. 

Have a great weekend : )

What a special card for your Dad and I am sure he will love it. The paper is terrific and just perfect with that super image that lends itself to a card for a guy. Thanks for joining us at Whoopsi Daisy.
