Masculine birthday

Hi Everyone, my card today was for my eldest brother, this was his present. I had forgotten I hadn't blogged it. I actually cased a card I saw and had to use it, as I thought it so masculine.
My brother is a whiz with computers and is capable of anything really, he likes an occasional brew, (hence the present, so I incorporated his "Techie" skills and his "occasional" brew into the card. I'm glad that this actually had a "good card" from him, he is so understated in his words LOL.

An excellent masculine design. I have so many menfolk to make cards for and it isn't easy. (husband, five sons, six grandsons + two step grandsons and two great-grandsons. Thank goodness for one grand-daughter and some lovely daughters-in-law!).
I like that you have personalised it. Kate xx

It's marvelously masculine, Faith, and I know he must have loved it! His tendency toward 'understatement' reminds me of how my dad used to be. When something was roll-on-the-floor funny, a sparkly smile would cut across his face and be gone. :-D

Faith that is awesome. I think it could go for almost any man, lol. I love the foam on the beer.

What a wonderful card for your brother. Love how you did the sentiment.
It is great that he is so good with the computer. Many people of his age tend to be not interested in this device .
Hope his birthday was great and I am sure he loved your card.

What a fab card for your brother Faith! I love that you got both the techie in him and his love of an occasional brew. The card looks great and I am so loving the cute glass of brew. I also love your etched beer glass for him. I was thinking of doing my brother the same thing! lol Hugs, Brenda

I love how you make such individual cards Faith, designed just for the recipient. Love the beer foam on this one and what a beautifully laid out sentiment! Also chuckled when I read he'd received it with a "good card" comment. Men! Vicky x
