Crazy 4 Challenges C4C102

Hello there Friends!! It's Saturday and it's Crazy 4 Challenges time again! It's funny because, lately, I've only been blogging on Saturdays. . sorry about that. It's been a busy week for me. Okay. . .this week Frances' challenge is to create a "manly themed card". The first thing that crossed my mind when I saw the challenge was "oh no. . .no bling, no flowers, no frilly stuff". . .it was tough initially but I got over it. . hehe! Anyway, come and play along with us this week.

You want manly. . .I'll give you manly! I think this Stampin Up stamp is the most manly image I have. Honestly, when I have to make a masculine card, this is the first image that comes to mind. I don't have too many masculine stamps or images so this one always work for me.

Actually this challenge was perfect considering today is our wedding anniversary so I'm going to give this card to my husband. It was meant to be!!

The designer paper is also Stampin Up and it's a retired design. I still have quite a bit of designer paper in this pack. . ..I tend to use my SU designer paper sparingly because most of the ones I own are retired and well, when it runs out. . .they're gone forever. I usually use them for special cards.

I thought the sentiment is perfect for today's occasion! I also made another card for my husband that says "happy anniversary". . .which is a general card and this one is a special one.

Anyway. . .gotta run! Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!!
