KCC My Man Blog Hop -- Happy Birthday, Bernie!

Hey, girlfriends!
This "My Man Blog Hop" is being sponsored by the Krazy Crafting Crew and is hosted by a member, Katina Martinez's "Loving Life's Little Blessings"  ...


...
in honor of those pesky men in our lives who support our cardmaking habits, but for whom it is so tough to make something masculine.
 
Will they like the glitter? Doubtful. The bling, the ribbon?  Negative. Men -- gotta love 'em, even when they cause a crafting challenge!
 
Well, today also happens to be the birthday of one of my best male friends, Bernie. Bernie is the hubby of my "sister" Star -- one of those women whose sisterhood you've chosen, not one of your blood but of your soul. Bernie is a wise man who married Star in 1979, the same year Star and I met as work colleagues. I rely on Bernie for a caring ear, warm hugs, spot-on judgment, and sense of humor. He's seen me through some fun times, and some tough times. Bernie, happy birthday -- and many, many more!
 
Bernie, this card's for you:
 
 
I made this card using almost all Close To My Heart products.  The base cardstock is Daisy White, then a layer of Champagne cardstock.
The shapes were off-cut squares that I cut from Laughing Lola B&T Duo paper. I rounded two of the corners using the new CTMH Corner Rounder.

The Happy Birthday stamp is one of the fantastic new M-sized stamps by CTMH, Heartfelt Birthday Greetings 
M1033, priced right at just $2.95!  I stamped the greeting using Exclusive Black Ink, and used a colored pencil from Prisma to match the blue in the Laughing Lola paper.
 
I hope you liked this card, and now it's time to move on to see other projects made for the men in our lives by other members of the KCC.  Your next stop is: ROBIN at Scrap and Chat.
 
 
Thank you for stopping by, it was lovely having you!
