Need to get cracking on some birthday cards, we have a lot of birthdays in the first three months of the year and most of them are for the males. This one is for one of our Grandsons. I do enjoy making men's cards but I have been making cards for them for over 20 years and sometimes I struggle to do something I haven't done before! I have lots of male orientated stamps but nothing sprung to mind this time. The car is an image from Dover publications and the papers are some old Graphic45. Now I have to start on a card for a great grandson who is sixteen next week and I don't have a clue  . I'm entering this on Caz's new challenge , hopefully this challenge will give us lots of inspiration for male cards.

cardz4guyz - Happy Birthday

Make it Monday = anything goes cards for men

I've just noticed it looks like the car is flying through the air! need to put some shadow underneath to "ground" it  -


  1. Hello Joan, Your card is wonderful, I'm loving the vintage background and the very elegant car. I have found for 16yr olds you can't go much wrong with musical instruments or something related to music. I do hope we can give you lots of ideas for males in the future. I am so pleased you found us here at Cardz4Guyz and that we will see you often. Hope your well. Lots of love. Caz
