Man Oh Man!

Hi just stopping in for a quick post! I've not been on in quite some time because I've been having a pretty challenging time with my illness. That's life... or should I say, that's my life (smile). Oh now, don't feel bad. I'm a fighter and I'm stubborn. My minister, Ben, says that's a good thing for me (smile). Anyway, I have been working on a bunch of mens cards. We always forget the men until we need a card for them. I visit a lot of different card crafting blogs and mostly all I see are girly cards or cards I wouldn't be sending to any of the men in my life! So, I decided to devote a ton of time just making cards appropriate for men!

A few years ago (about 3-5 yrs), I decided I would get more organized with my card making as I am with my scrapbooking so, I started sorting and matching my men appropriate papers with stickers, and other embellishments I had on hand. Well, within that time there's been an awful lot happen in my life and thus threw me off track with that. I ended up with almost 50 folders, each housing enough stuff to make anywhere from 2-9 mens cards!! Well, I recently got on this cleaning spree in my craft room and a "finish old projects" spree and came across all of these folders! Whoo hooo! It comes at just the right time for me also because I was growing kind of tired and bored with my card making and wanting a challenge. I do like a challenge.

I'm happy with the way most of them are turning out and I hope you enjoy them as well. I won't be posting them for a while though because I just don't want to get off track with what I'm doing. I don't want to have to stop to photograph and load them. I'll probably be ready in about a couple more weeks so stay tuned and get ready for a FULL MEN'S CARDS BLOW-OUT!!! I'm warning you, by the time I'm done with all of these cards I'll probably have well over 100 cards. I'll give you a count when I'm done though. I'm hoping you get some inspiration and ideas from it!

See you all soon and thanks for stopping by!
