Hubby's Birthday Card

I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday afternoon. It is raining here in Northern Nevada and it has been since yesterday late afternoon. What a welcome site. We get so little rain that I truly enjoy it. Last week we still had 94 degrees = 35 Celsius but the coming week will be cold and autumn will begin.

Yesterday was my DH's birthday and I made him a little card. This is as manly as it will get for me. I left off the lace, the bows and other frilly things. He liked it and I think he even would take a Magnolia card from me, because it is handmade.

It is another PTI card and all the papers are from PTI, except the solid orange is Bazzil. The stamp is from the PTI set called "Vintage Picnic". The buttons are also PTI.

On the inside I used the same papers and cut the label with the Mat Stack 4 die. I had punched out leave shapes but they would not show up on the busy papers. So as not to waste them I clued them to the back.

That's all for today. I have to get back to working on my Christmas cards. I hope I'll get one finished today. There are only two months left before my overseas one have to be mailed out.

I like to thank each of you for visiting my little blog and leaving such sweet comments. I appreciate it so very much.... Thank you all.
