Hi everyone! It's been a beautiful weekend here with bright sunny days. Spring (and a hint of summer) has definitely arrived. Tomorrow is another story with heavy rain expected. I, for one, do love rainy days too.
Today, I have a masculine birthday card to share. Tan cardstock was used for the base. The papers and some ephemera are from Tim Holtz. The butterfly is Jenni Bowlin. The "Happy" brad is My Mind's Eye. I simply cut the prongs off the brad, glued it to the circular matted ephemera, and adhered it to the journaling card with pop dots. I tied a piece of hemp into a bow on the wooden button and added a couple of Recollections rhinestones to finish it off.
Masculine cards aren't easy for me to make. This was made for a nephew's birthday. While there are no flowers, I couldn't stay away from adding a bow!
I finally started my spring housecleaning this past week. How I hated to give up some of my craft time to do it, but it is a good feeling to see things fresh and clean! Of course, I did squeeze in a bit of craft time. I am working on my first pocket pal letter for a swap and hope to be able to share it soon. What are you working on?
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and for your kind comments. I do appreciate them. Have a wonderful week!
