I just finished the most challenging card of the year - my husband's birthday card. I don't know why, but I have the hardest time making a decent card for him. Year after year he has received truly inferior cards, not because I don't care but because, because... I'm not sure! Partly because I don't have much in the way of masculine stamps and anything I do have that remotely qualifies as masculine I've already used.
So here's what I came up with. It's no prize winner but it's probably the best he's received from me.
I'm glad to have that done. Now I can get back to flowers and flourishes and stuff I like!
