Happy 40th Birthday, Jim!

Happy Birthday, Jim! :)

This is a fun card that I made for my hubby, Jim, for him turning the Big 4-0 on Monday. I'll be giving it to him today since this is the day that we're having a joint celebration with all our friends, as our friend, Doug is turning 40 today, too. Our babysitter is booked and I can't wait to fly the coup for the night. I've scheduled this to post as we're on our way out the door, it should be a fun night out! :)

Wow, another masculine card...I'm on a roll, actually I'm a bit stressed to tell you the truth! lol :) I really can't wait to get back to making girlie cards...they're so much easier to design with lots of pretty embellies. I always wonder about what colours are going to be good for a masculine card. What I think would be 'manly' colours, sometimes just don't turn out looking right, or they're boring colours when put together. Well, I think this card is far from boring and has a fun design to it, so I think he'll like it. I hope... :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
