Happy Birthday masculine card?

Hi Everyone, I'm still rushed off my feet with one thing and another, yesterday I managed to do 42 inserts today for 6x6 and 5x7, designed, printed and cut to size and inserted into cards, well chuffed with myself. I got those out of the way, all Christmas cards are now finished. Whoop whoop!

I'm hoping to at least start writing the cards tonight and finish tomorrow, then concentrate on presents that haven't even entered my mind yet! I'm so late this year. Can anyone lend me some time? 

Anyhow, I made this for one of our God Son's, they get to the adult age of what the heck do I do, he has no hobbies to speak of, so I went plain and simple! Using my die cutting machine to cut the card out of  black card. I printed paper and placed it behind the words then stamped a small stamp onto the card in gold. Nice and simple and bright too, even though it is black card. He liked it, that's all I can ask for.

Lovely card; as you say male's are harder to craft for without hobbies but you've done a grand job. Well done on finishing the cards; sure the present list won't be as hard.

Faith, that's a great card, particularly for someone who has no "hook" you can work off of. Hey, you can feel better now as I'm way farther behind than you are. {Sigh} xoxo

Looks great Faith, all my cards are done, written and addressed but only because we go away on holiday next Wednesday otherwise I wouldn’t be so organised xx

Oh Faith, this brilliant card has blown me away! I love the background and the bold typography and I especially love the way the 'It's your day' sentiment fits perfectly in the space at the top of the T.
As for time... yes, I could do with a few more hours in the day too (and perhaps a bit of a sit down!) Vicky x

I wish I could lend you some time Faith, but sadly I am in the same boat. lol I am getting there, but it is so slow and of course time goes by so fast. sigh I'm still working on the inside of my Christmas cards, hopefully I will get the rest done today. Time to be getting them out! I love this card, simple but has a great impact and perfect for those who don't have any hobbies or interests. Love that background paper you used too. I just might have to CASe this one from you! lol Hugs, Brenda
