A Card For Him

HappyWednesday Everyone!

I hope you are having a 'Terrific Tuesday.'This evening's goal was to come home and create at least cards #2 and  #3 for this week and begin working on card #4 when the new season of HawthoRNe begins tonight.. I enjoy that show and Drop Dead Diva. Do you remember when nothing good aired during the summer months? Now, in addition to those two, I also look forward to watching Rosalie and Isles too. Do you have a favorite program you like to watch as you create? I know the television is usually playing in the background; however, seldom am I actually watching it.

So, anyway, I need to produce a few masculine cards. Of course Father's Day is just around the corner, but I am also in need of a few cards for some up coming birthdays for a couple of my male friends. The wheels in my head started to churn and the colors craft and blue came to mind. The color white or should I say the lack of color is a given. I came across a challenge or two where the colors I selected would work well.

After reading my friend Pauline's blog, Craft Obsession, I decided to participate in the Ribbon Reel Challenge for the first time. If you're interested, hop on over. It's not too late to play along. Just below is the inspirational photo:



...and this is what I created....



I hope you were inspired by my masculine card. As always, thanks for visiting The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.

Great card and lovely sentiment! Like the colors you have used for this too. As to your questions regarding TV shows, we do not get many where I live as we do not have cable or dish satellite because of weak signals. But enjoy the summer!
