Changing Seasons

Hi everyone! This is the birthday card I gave my father-in-law for his birthday!  It was a challenge figuring out what colors to use on the flowers and still end up with a masculine theme. Lucky for me he has a green thumb and flowers them in any color!

Here's a peak at the inside of the card and the verse I added.  I thought the reference to the big outdoors was perfect for a masculine outdoors themed card.  The image used on today's card is from the Changing Seasons rubber stamp set by Stampin' Up.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

This is a wonderful masculine card, Karen. Perfect coloring and wonderfully designed. Love the image. It's refreshing to see a scene the is masculine without cars, trains or being sports related. How all goes well with the studying.

Karen, this is SO VERY PRETTY! Love the image and your entire card!

I'm not sure what's going on....I hadn't gotten any updates from your blog recently so I popped over to check it out and saw that for some reason my name disappeared as a follower!!! I didn't do anything and now I'm wondering how many more it did the same thing too! Anyway, I signed up as a follower again. Hopefully it's going to work from now on. Blogger is doing strange things lately it seems!
