Here's another post for the men! I do have something of interest to tell you all. After trying to clean up a bit in my craft haven, I actually came across an accordion file that has SEVERAL more folders in it that are housing cut papers, embellishments, stickers etc. FOR MORE MEN'S CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can imagine the fright on my face after this find!!!!!!!!! I am now so sick and tired of looking at stuff for men's cards I just don't know what I'm going to do!!!!!!!! I don't really know if I should attempt to do them and get them out of my way forever, or pack them away for another time!!! I think it may very well be the latter of the two!
Well, see you all again real soon! I'm trying to get them out there to you.
Thanks for comin' back to see Casey and me!

PS. Hope your holiday shopping is going GREAT!

                                          Make A Wish... not to be bothered! LOL! I'm sure that's what
                                          my hubby's wish would be. No one EVER bothers him when he's
                                          on his throne! LOL! LOL!

Hi All,
Thanks for stopping in for a peek at my latest post! I'm praying you are spreading the word about my posts so I will perhaps gain some more exposure. Sometime I feel this is all for nothing. I do enjoy making the cards but, I get kinda down knowing I'm just not reaching many of you bloggers out there. I do appreciate all of my followers very much! You have no idea how much! A very big thanks to all of you for your continued support. I just don't know how long I can keep plugging away at this thing called a blog...
Thanks so much for stopping by and your continued support!

PS. I guess I'll keep em' coming as long as I have you "guys"!  :-)

Hello There,
Well, somehow these cards got mixed in with all of the men's cards I worked on! I have almost 500 cards but, I guess during my dilerium, my over-worked, under-paid, worn out moments, at least 12 of the cards ended up being for women, 14 ended up, in my opinion, being questionable and 12 are misfits meaning they have no grouping! I really don't know how this happened, but I thought I'd load these cards in between the  men's posts over time (it's a total of 38 others).

Spread the word about my posts so others may take advantage of this hopefully inspiring, motivating opportunity!
Thanks Much for Stopping By,

                                    I had the same intensions for these cards as well, to use what I have and to make
                                    them very simple but nice and easily sent through the mail.




The paper used on this card some of you may recognize. It's made to look like
layers of mulberry paper but it's really not! I actually added a piece of orange mulberry
to the layout just to give it more dimension.

Well, I know some of you have been really waiting for this post so here it is! I've actually completed almost 500 cards! YES THAT'S RIGHT, almost 500 cards!!! Never before in my cardmaking history has this happened in such a short period of time. I don't know exactly what happened. First let me tell you that my goal for this year was to start using up my older inventory and things that I already had! That was my real motivation for this post, other than I'm kind of tired of seeing sooooo many cards out here for the women in our lives and hardly any for the men! We tend not to make a card for "him" until we need one and why is that ladies??? Let's show our men some love! This post has cards for men of all kinds of taste, I've got hunting, racing, cars (general) and classic, sports of all kinds, including golfing, for men that like a little bit of bling (let's face it, most of us if not all of us know at least 1 man who likes jewelry just as much as we do!), vintage for the older men in our lives, I've also thrown in a few for the little men in our lives (not too many of those)!

Do you remember when stickers, cut-outs, punch-outs etc. were REALLY popular? Well, I accumulated a bunch just like the rest of you. If you've been doing this for any length of time, you know what I'm talking about! I actually started out scrapbooking so I ended up with a lot of stickers and papers from Creative Memories just to name one company. My goal for these cards was to make them, for the most part, easily mailed, keep them pretty simple and understated since they are for the guys, and to use what I already had like my stickers, punch-outs, and cut-outs and also to incorporate those cut-out saved images I've accumulated over the years from magazines and calendars!!!

Well, now you know what I use to do in my spare time... trust me when I say, "I do not look at anything the same as before I started card-making! I don't know about you but, NOTHING IS SAFE! Since I have so very many cards done for this post title, I'll be loading them over the next few weeks I'm sure! I have no idea how many or how often I will load because my illness is so unpredictable, you'll just have to check back often. If you're in my email list you'll automatically receive the new post announcements. Sooooo without further ado-do!  :-)

I will be loading these cards according to groupings so you can see how different each card looks using the same papers! Always Thanks for stopping by,
Bethann aka PawwPadd
