Cheers To You!


Popping in for a quick one today!  Needed a man card for a young man at work that has a birthday tomorrow... the poor guy has to sit in our area and he's one of two young men in a room of 11... and he's a really good sport!  He's one of my favorite people... probably because he reminds me of my kids... his sense of humor and fun.... so of course I had to make him a birthday card!

I'm using the No Worries paper pack (it's our theme over at the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge.. you should check it out.. you don't have to use the actual papers!)  I'm playing along with the sketch challenge over at Dragonfly Journeys (sketch is at the end of the post).  I'm also playing along with Heart2Heart Challenges Fiesta Challenge, and Cards 4 Guys Something Blue For Father's Day


I will admit... I don't have a whole lot of stamps suitable for a 20-something young man... or really a whole lot of man stamps...lol!  But I did have this cool set from Two Paper Divas with the Beer Mug on it and I thought it would be perfect... although I did have a hard time deciding between the Margarita and the Beer Mug...lol!  But I landed on this one because I thought it would be fun to color... I made some bubbles on the inside (I've made better bubbles but they were so tiny and an afterthought so not the best... but he won't notice..lol); I also added some white streaks for a reflection and some liquid glass to the foam and sliding down the sweaty glass... I don't think Two Paper Divas is around any longer, however you can still find some of their stamps on Amazon and on the Walmart website...

And I am loving that Cheers die from Paper Smooches... love their word dies and the fonts on their stamps.. I think it really adds to the fun feel!


This sentiment was from the Two Paper Divas set as well... and all dies are from Craftin Desert Divas except for the double stitched circle... I believe that is from MFT.


Hope you enjoyed your stop here today!  I'll be making a few man cards over the next week or so... don't forget to come back and see me!  You can sign up to get email notifications if you want!

See you again soon!
