HB2U

Hello my crafty friends! I have a simple but cute card for you today. Son #1 had a birthday on Sept. 12th, but was still in Afghan at the time. He is now home and here is his birthday card. He is a heavy weight vehicle mechanic in the Army and has to be able to drive everything he fixes, so I made him a tool chest card. It's hard for me to come up with masculine cards at times. lol Now I have son #5's birthday card to do. His birthday is the 29th of Sept. and he teaches wood shop out in Iowa, so I think I am going to make him a tool chest too. lol Knock out two birds with one stone so to speak. I hope you enjoy this card. I used just red card stock and then used My Creative Time dies Stitched Party Dies which you can find here. The drawer handles are scraps of silver card stock punched with a discontinued SU punch. The tools are old stickers I used to look like they are "hanging" out the tool drawer (middle drawer is on pop dots) and the letter "wood" looking sticker are from my stash too and are old, old, old! lol  I inked the whole thing with Tim Holtz distress ink Black Soot. The inside sentiments are from Cardztv stamp set called Good Times and you can get that here. So what do you think?? Do you think it will pass for a mechanic and shop teacher??  As always thank you for stopping by to visit me today, I hope I was able to inspire you just a little!

Oh Brenda, I'm so happy to hear that your son is home safely. I can hear your sigh of relief. Your card is just too adorable. Why does it have to be so hard to come up with those guy cards. This is just a fab design and I'm going to have to tuck it away in my mind for my son and son-in-laws.
