Masculine Challenge

Hi Friends! You might already know this, but I'm now designing for the Wee Memories challenge blog. AND This week we are having our August Blog Hop!
You should have arrived here from Cathy's blog, but if you got lost or want to start over just go to Jenny's Wee Memories blog and you'll find the yellow brick road there. Or the blog hop list.

This week's challenge is sponsored by Graphic 45, I love their stuff, and the new stamps they've been adding to their lines are sweet too! So if you like Graphic 45 be sure to play along 'cause the prize package is pretty awesome!  The challenge theme this week is (wait for it, wait for it.....) 

Masculine!  Sooo... I went of out my regular comfort zone a little bit and made this birthday card. For my Dad? His birthday is in December.. so I guess I'm ahead of the game this one time!
I used several papers from my scrap pile (mountain....Everest), some fun foam stamps for the word 'dad' and a purple onion stamp for the happy birthday portion. The rodeo type graphic was found online and printed...  I don't feel like i'm very good at making masculine cards but I actually like the way this one turned out! Victory! 

Now to keep going along the blog hop stop by Giovanna's great blog
