Birthday Boy!

 Good morning and a very happy Wednesday, welcome to March!

After a lovely beginning to February (we were in Tenerife) we've had rather a poor ending as we both have Covid (again!) This time however I passed it on to Neil rather than him giving it to me as a birthday present. I will be able to let this go eventually, but not anytime soon!

Anyway, on to brighter things, it's time for a new challenge over at Country View Crafts, and the lovely Corrie has chosen Birthday Cards, but for a MAN! Yup, the thing all crafters love to make, a birthday card for a man who doesn't want it, already has it, or just can't remember where he put it!

As I've really been feeling quite poorly I haven't been in my craft room for ages. It's also the time of the year when it's soooo cold in there. So on Monday I literally found myself in need of a card for today (Wednesday)

So I decided that I had to keep it simple and pulled out a couple of sheets of designer paper. I knocked them back just a little with some gesso.
I added some stamping and stencilling and made the panels into tags.
These are my stamps, and of course Susan has a brilliant range here in the store. 
So it's over to you now, please join in with our challenge and show us your birthday cards for men,
Have a wonderful March, and thanks so much for looking x


  1. Oh Sue! I'm so sorry you've been unwell. I thought I'd been a bit lacking in creativity as we've been trying to find a care home for my mum but think we've succeeded now so maybe we'll both be in a better place soon. This card is brilliant. Men's cards are always a Bugbear for me and I've got one to make before the end of March so this mighjt just be enough to encourage me to get on with it. Take care and have a great week. Hugs, Angela xxx

  2. This is a fabulous masculine card, Sue! I love the stamps you chose and how you put the card together! I hope you are both better now! Take care! xx

  3. So sorry you've been unwell. Covid is still doing the rounds, a friend of mine has just gone down with it ...

    Lovely masculine card.

    All the best Jan

  4. Sorry to hear covid got to you again, I hope you are both recovering well from it. I know it can be so draining. Really like the card you made, love that stamp set, with the tags it's like three birthday cards in one.. I really struggle with mancards.
    Hope you feel better soon Hugs Tracey xx

  5. What an amazing card - love it! The muted colours and stamps that you used look so beautiful 😊. I hope you are keeping well and thanks for visiting me. Take care and wishing you a Happy March! Hugs, Jo x

  6. Amazing card Sue. I'm sorry to hear you've been poorly again.

  7. Fabulous male card, Sue! I hope you both feel better again!
    Have a happy March.
