No-Frills Birthday

Making "guy" cards is often not easy. Making "young guy" cards is even more difficult, I think. Two of my nephews have March birthdays. They are in their early and late twenties. This is the card I made for one of them.

The patterned paper is from a pad from Recollections I just got. The border piece and matting are from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is from All Night Media. I maybe normally wouldn't have bothered to share this card, but I had nothing else:)

On a personal note, our daughter-in-law had out-patient back surgery on Monday, and she is doing nicely. Hopefully she'll be back to normal soon. She will be happy to be able to lift her son again - after six weeks.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I agree, that " guy" cards are usually hard to make, but yours is so nice. As for me, i have a problem to make cards for man:(

I really like this card! The simplicity and sophistication make it a perfect guy card! Glad your daughter is doing better -- each day will get better.

This gives me an idea about a card for our grandson who is a teen and I always struggle with his card. thanks

Guy cards are definitely a challenge for me. Not every guy is a hunter to use deer or fishing themes or a golfer to us that as a theme. The bold stripes are great for guys and the nice CAS layout.

Thanks for the idea. I agree that guy cards are hard to come up with ideas for. I prefer CAS cards like this one.

Gorgeous card Lynette!! The layout is lovely, I'm positive he'll enjoy it.
Glad to hear your DIL is doing well.

Classy guy card Lynette.

Glad Brooke is doing well, I bet she's glad the worst is over, and hopefully the end of a stressful time for all.
