March seems to be the month for “boy cards” and this week appears to be Whipper Snapper week…

I have to confess this one didn’t turn out quite as I’d pictured in my mind but it will make a good birthday card for my brother…his birthday is this weekend so I’d better hurry up and get this in the mail.  Actually, his wife’s birthday is the very next day so you’ll see that card in the next day or so.

Here’s today’s card:

I used some K&Co paper from a mat stack.  At first blush it might appear that the paper in the stack is not very masculine but the colours are more muted and there are plenty of dots, stripes and “almost solids” to find a combination or two for a “boy card”.

This is really just a revamp of my last card layout – it’s been a tiring week and my imagination is not overflowing with creativity right now.  I do have a couple of cards that have to be made this weekend so I’m hoping the fact that they HAVE to be done will get some ideas pumping out.

I’d like to give a quick shout out to a few new blog readers that have been visiting lately – I really appreciate you taking the time to drop by and leave a comment.  It’s nice to know someone is checking out my stuff.  If you do leave a comment and would like to leave the URL to your own blog (if you have one) I’ll be sure to take a few minutes to check out your creations too!
