Masculine Birthday Card

I always struggle with male cards but it was step son's birthday a few weeks ago and I had to come up with a card.  It took a couple of days of pushing bits of cardstock around but I was thrilled with the end result.  Can you believe it took two days to make one card!!!!!!!

I wanted to use the Dictionary background stamp but I didn't have it so I had to improvise with the stamp from the Open Sea and my stamp-a-ma-jig.

I hope everyone in the southern hempisphere is keeping warm as it has been pretty frosty around our place for the last week.  Even the water troughs are freezing over.  Here is Bandit and Schiska sitting outside in the frost.  They weren't out there long and I soon found them warming themselves in the front of the fire.

This is Schiska's "I am not impressed" face.  She doesn't like the cold.
Thank you for visiting
