The cards today were made for my two married sons.  Notice the black screw brad on the first card.  It was originally silver but was colored with a Black Copic Marker.  Worked like a charm!  And even though they were both made as Father’s Day cards, with a simple change of the sentiment I think they would work well for other masculine occasions such as a birthday.

Here is the inside of Jeff’s card.

Card #2 was for Gary.  With a wife and three daughters… well he really is the king of the castle!

Wouldn’t it be easy to make this a birthday card!

Just have to share my latest picture (it’s what Grandma’s do!) of little Kira with her daddy.  Love it.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen my latest sketch challenge and blog candy stamps from Memory Box, check it all out HERE!
