Friends with Flare- Happy Day

Another Friday.  That means it is FWF day.

Today I am going to share with you my go to card for birthdays.  I have made this card a few times.  You can make it quickly and I think it works for men too.  I gave it to my, gulp, now 18 year old son yesterday.  The first card I made looked too babyish.  So, I went with the old dependable.  Isn't it hard to make cards for men?  Plus the men in my life do not appreciate when I make a card for them anyway.  I think my husband and son think I am nuts that I toil over making cards when you can even get them at gas stations.  That is right I live with a couple of Barbarians.  They reside in my basement and stare at the magic blue light together and repeat bad movie line from the action movies they watch and laugh at each other. Also, did I mention the smell?  I am sure none of you can related to that.  Oh yeah and they punch each other in the arm a lot...like I said, "Modern Day Barbarians".
Stamp: Unity Stamp
Paper and Sticker: Echo Park
Ink: Momento and Tim Holtz Distress ink

Thanks for looking on the second day of Spring.

    1. Thank you so much for coming and looking. My husband is the same. He only says anything when it spills out of my crafting area onto the dining room table.

    1. My nieces and nephews are having babies. I am a great aunt. The first time I said great aunt "ouch" that hurt. I can not believe I have an 18 year old. But I have a 7 and 11 year old to keep me young.
