Masculine Thank You Cards

Hello my crafty friends, back with two more cards for you today. These are more masculine thank you cards.  I love the way this typewriter card has a "tropical" feel to it. The little flies are so stinkin' cute! They are from a Paper Tre Ink stamp set, which was a gift from Aunty Darnell! Thanks Auntie!!!! 

 Here is my fishy thank you card. The bubbles have glossy accents on them. My blue panels are popped up on foam tape. I think those little gold fish are so dang cute. lol All my stamps are from the NBUS mountain that I have!! Yay for using up some more NBUS!!!

Ah sooo agree with you Brenda re the fish images, cute plus, but it's truly a superbly designed card as is the typewriter one too, well done on your marathon cardmaking treasures, lovely to see them all. And how extra nice to use up NBUS.
Thanks for the inspiration,

These cards are so cute. Love the papers. Adorable fishes and super cute flies! (flies can be cute, right?)

Darnell J Knauss said...

You are very welcome, Brenda! You've posted two more incredible cards! I mean, is it just me, or are you feeling like your designs are getting better and better? Both of these are again really well done. That fish card is especially tremendous!! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Auntie

Oh I DO like these! Love the leaf pattern you've done with the typewriter. Now that was a brilliant design idea! Glad you are using some of the NBUS...I'm with Darnell too, in thinking your designing is going all A+. It was good before, of course, but you're doing some fantastic looking cards. The fishies are adorable. Liked the idea of popping up those panels too. TFS & Hugs! MM (you got relatives all over blogland, kiddo! Tee Hee).

Super cute cards Brenda and I can see a man appreciating it when they receive them too :) Wow some crazy weather this week there is, looking forward to some warmer temps another 10 degrees would be perfect :) Hugs my friend, Tina

That typewriter sure brings back memories! Makes me remember how much I appreciate the delete and backspace keys on the computer! LOL! I went through some white out in those days! And your goldfish are adorable! So bright and pretty! Love the "bubbles".

My sweet, wonderful Brenda! First: THANK YOU for putting up with my slow-pokey commenting! Yeesh! The Awesome Friend Award has your name written all over it! Time for me to do some catching up and WOW! Talk about a couple of gems! I have Emma's typewriter, too, but I've never seen it dolled up with a tropical background. Totally works! And those little flies *are* cute (real ones, not so much!). Your smiley goldfish: ACK! Stinkin' cute with those happy faces and glossy bubbles! Actually, make that *dang* stinkin' cute *grin*! I didn't think I needed this fish set, however, you are certainly making me reconsider that decision!
Hugs~c
