Happy birthday!

   Hey there!  I have a birthday card and small gift idea to share with you today!  Nothing over the top fancy, but stuffed to the rim with love!  We have a very special family friend who is getting  ready to celebrate his big day and I wanted to send him a little something to let him know how wonderful we think he is!  This is the card I made for him:

Masculine card = guy colors!  Still struggle with these! I have to practically sit on my hands to keep from dressing them all up!  

Lots of embossing, some faux stitching, some plain ole' silver brads, but no bling, ribbons or buttons! LOL

Happy birthday to a truly wonderful person!

Matching mini comp book decorated to match the card.  You can never have enough paper...It's true! :)  (Also, no bling!)  LOL

Gift combo!  Will add some yummy candies to the duo and it will make it's way to the mailbox today!

It is warm, but beautiful here today!  Love the happy weather!  Hope you are having a great day! I will be back soonest with more to share!

Oh, he will love it!

I so need to get that(lattice?)embossing folder. I keep seeing it around and want to pet it!

Thanks, for sharing your awesome ideas.

You might not like sitting on your hands, but these are fabulous! The perfect amount of decoration while still maintaining the 'manly' balance!! Love the embossing on the card and journal!
