Manly Monday: Owl Be There

I’ve got to say that had one very busy and fun weekend.  Yes, it rained some on Saturday, but it was gorgeous rain and it cleared up faster than the rain started.

I scoped out places to eat near Natomas in Sacramento where I will be attending the premier of Stampin’ Up!’s 2014 catalog on April 28th!  My Circle of Pals and I will be hanging out in that area that day and I can hardly contain myself!

If you want me to reserve your FREE 2014 Catalog please let me know right here!  Please keep in mind, you must not have a current demonstrator to get your FREE catalog.  Current customers are already on my list and you will be the first to get yours!!!  YAYYY!


Today’s Manly Monday card is a special one.  It’s one that was made during a One-on-One card class today with my friend Pam.  She’s no stranger to crafts and she’s been itching to come over and make a card.


Pam doesn’t have a blog and I would love for you to leave her a comment about her sweet manly owl card.  Thank you so much for stopping by.

Hola Tarjeta Masculina

Hola/HiPara leer en español, haga clic en la bandera de España en el lado derecho.

I know that as card-makers we tend to make more girly/feminine type cards.  Guys are not into rhinestones, pearls, or ribbon, so we tend to shy away from making them until we absolutely need them.  In honor of all the men in our lives, I have started posting a masculine card at least once a week (if you haven’t noticed by now)… LOL.  You can find last weeks card here. Hola/Hi When designing a masculine card you do not need to continually utilize dark colors.  But you do need to throw in there the macho nacho feel.  Having been raised in a Latino household I know too well the machismo that comes with the male gender.  In all honesty, the Latin men in my life are macho nacho on the outside, but teddy bears on the inside… LOL.  Go on and don’t forget to add a pop of soft color to lighten up this perfect designer series paper for a personalized card for the men in your life.
