Stampin' Up! Milk carton birdhouse
An unexpected surprise

Something masculine

When I sort through my stash of cards, it's easy for me to find feminine looking cards but I always run into trouble when I need something masculine.  I didn't realize how often I made cards with flowers!  Today's card uses a stamp I have had for years - probably at least 7 years.  It's not from Stampin' Up! but rather PSX.  I love the detail on this image.  This card is going to my son and he loves to golf so it was an easy choice.

I kept the embellishments to a minimum knowing the post office will charge me an arm and a leg if the card is more than 1/4" thick.  In fact, I may already have a problem with the button I used, but I felt it really needed something.  The button is from the Stampin' Up! Sherbet designer button pack which has a really nice variety of styles and sizes.  If you look closely, the center of the button is not tied with thread or ribbon, but rather a thin piece of chocolate paper. It adds an unexpected element to the card.

It's a beautiful day today in Central Florida.  I'm off to do my 3-mile walk with my friend and neighbor.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow so I can show you the awesome surprise my husband gave me over the weekend!
