Masculine Birthday Cards

Hey there!!

Happy Belated Easter! I hope you all had a fun weekend and enjoyed your Easter celebrations.

I've been such a slacker-blogger mostly cuz I've been a slacker-stamper as well!! :D But I'm trying not to worry about it, just do what I do and post when I post! :D I haven't spent much time looking at blogs lately either, I'm missing it! I was so absorbed in the Twilight books I pretty much let everything slide. Now I've finished and am trying to get things back in order. Although, I did start reading Twilight again last night! Starting the series over but I don't think I'll feel the need to rush through it this time, just read a little here and there.

I have a couple of birthday cards to share, one for my Stepdad, his birthday was this past Sunday on Easter, he's been big into finding great recipes for grilling marinades lately. And one for my mom's boss who is an avid fisherman and makes the best smoked salmon ever!!

Here are the cards:



All stamps and papers are from A Muse Artstamps.

I altered an earring base to make it look as much like a fish hook as I could. I also gave a little texture to the fish by using Copic blending solution on a rag and dabbing it on, thanks to Marianne, the Copic Queen for that tip!!

Have a fabulous week!!

Hugs and blessings,

WOW, these are both amazing Rhonda!! You are always so creative. Masculine cards are always a struggle for me. You make it look so easy! I can relate with the stamp/blog slack thing, as well as the browsing. It's hard to keep up with it all sometimes. Definitely don't worry about it. Enjoy yourself & ALL of the things that make you happy!! HUGS!
