Just For You - Manly Challenge

Hello blogging friends. I thought I would get a jump on my Father's Day cards when I saw that Cheery Lynn was having a Make It Manly challenge. Most of my Cheery Lynn dies are flowers and doilies, but I did think these leaves would work and I did use a doily die to create my sun :) Here is what I came up with for my hubby, who loves to fish.

I love how realistic looking these leaves are when you add a little ink and curl up the tips. This card was made completely with some older Imaginisce papers and some cardstock scraps. I love it when I can use up some scraps.

Now I am going to spend the day planting my garden. Can't believe how late I am getting it in this year. Way too cold and rainy here. Have a great weekend.


  1. Marcia, your card is adorable. I love how you used the Rum Punch Tiny Doily to make the sun, very clever. Good luck and thanks for joining in on the fun at Cheery Lynn Designs challenge.

  2. Your'e card is so totally sweet. I love the fall leaves on the corner, the beautiful son, and overall theme for a wonderful hubby card! Thanks for playing along in the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge Marcia!

  3. Beautiful colours. Love the sun and the leaves. Great card

  4. Marcia, adorable card!! The cutouts and colors are amazing!!!
