Guy Cards... and the additions!

Happy Monday!! The sun is TRYING to shine today... after a night of RAIN... then it must have gotten very COLD.. our windows were icy when I took Justin to the bus.. a friend emailed me and said she heard the S word in our future... NOOOOO NOOOOO SNOW! (pretty please!... if I cant have one day in Jan.. I dont want any! HA!) ANYWAY!!

So this week I need THREE cards for the GUYS! :) I have such a hard time with them! I dont know why.. ok I do.. because I like to use flowers, and pinks, and frills and bling! and not to many guys I know will enjoy that! HA HA! So I put all that out of my brain and came up with these...

First off my brothers... he turned the Big 4-0 on saturday! :) Got to go have a FABULOUS dinner that THEY put on for us for HIS DAY! YUM! and sooo BEAUTIFUL!! (THANKS AGAIN Timmons Family!) (I got photos to share.. later! ) ANYWAY... I was out taking the photo of the card.. and as I did I decided.. ok it needs...
So here it is BEFORE!

and AFTER... with the PEARLS.. see they are MANLY.. colored with my copics to match the KRAFT CS! :)

Next up our good friends son turned 13 last week.... so I had to make up his card.. AGAIN.. when taking the photo it NEEDED something... so here is

and AFTER.. just added some brown dots around the edges... KNOW what STEVE said.. wow this isnt like your style.. the brown dots are almost perfectly spaced.. so unlike you! HA HA!! Does he know me or WHAT! LOL!!! What can I say.. a moment of almost perfection was mine! ;) it wont happen again! LOL!!!

I used my Spicas on this.. I WISH you could see them better.. all around the star and the 13.. just for a little extra POP!

So for card 3 I thought.. I will make it just right the first time... but OH NO.. again.. taking the photo.. thinking... it needs a little more.. so here it is

and AFTER! I added the black box around Happy Birthday!

For the center I traced around my fillable frame die from PTI... I LOVE new uses for things! LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by! I am off to grab lunch .. then visit some blogs!
Have a GREAT day...
