Guys’ birthdays… ugh.  I know that many of us have that same reaction to the prospect of making a masculine card.  And for me the really frustrating part is that I struggle with it even knowing that most guys don’t care what the card looks like (at least if they are like my DH)! lol

Well here is what I came up with for my brother-in-laws’ birthdays this month.  I let Martha Stewart’s “Happy Birthday” punch do some of the work for me.


Rob lives outside of the city and has had/raised horses… well at least his wife has.  But I love this image and thought he might like it, too.


Tim is a geologist.  I thought a scene with a rock formation would be a good image for him.


In the end, I like the way these came out.  *Phew*  Hope the guys like ’em, too.

Happy Crafting!
