Hello crafty friends ~

I know it's highly unusual for me to pop in randomly on the weekend but I've had this card sitting for over a week now undelivered and thought I may as well share.  Many of the cards I put together don't even make it to my blog.  I'm not disciplined enough to photograph them all.  Shame on me.

A couple of weeks ago my neighbour's (adult) son helped me cut a few tree limbs and clear some bushes, and then he took all the waste away too!  How lucky was I?  I wanted to let him know how much I appreciated his help so grabbed a gift from the liquor store and put this little card together.  I really struggle with masculine cards and I didn't want it too tizzy because I don't really know his tastes.

I copied CASEd this card by Michelle over at the Card Grotto - love her CAS style.  How easy is that?  A few scraps of 'brights' dsp and voila, the perfect male card!

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.  Cool here in Canberra but we've had blue skies.


  1. Absolutely stunning! Those bold shapes work so well for masculine cards.

  2. I can't believe how simple this card is when you de-construct it, yet how effective. Plus it can be adapted for so many uses. Great job!

  3. Oh such a great idea to use up a few bits of DSP.
    I really love all your sentiments - you'll have to let me know where you get them from!!!!!

  4. Fantastic card, Patrice! I love the bold colours and the button tied with twine is my favourite thing at the moment :)

  5. Patrice this is so lovely. Beautiful colours and love the layout :)

  6. This is a great Male card.... I too struggle with them, but well done

  7. Bold, brash and beautiful (as much as a male card can be!!!) love it Patrice and I bet it was appreciated by him too. ooxx

  8. A great bold card, and so perfect for a young man too, love it!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I love reading them!
