Take two-a masculine theme!

Last week was my birthday
not only was I sick
but my husband was out of town...
the cats and I celebrated alone...
I talked with a few friends
and I knew I had an "incoming call" while I was in the middle
of one conversation...
I am not too techno-savvy
I do not know how to switch back and forth
so I didn't try.
A day later
I got the voicemail message from my stepson, Tommy,
wishing me a happy birthday!
It was a nice surprise
and I wanted to let him know I really appreciated
him thinking about me & taking time to call...
So here's what I made:
again-it's all SU papers and dies...the Framelets that I used yesterday
only rotated it on the fold..
this is really easy to do...but yet looks complicated & impressive ; )!

I used Baker's twine to add some red---
and embossed that anchor in silver...
of course popped up that image on the front
as well as the anchor!

stamped the journal pages several times and layered them
making a small envelope out of the top one and adding
a half-moon notch to it...

tucked in the letter and it's ready to mail!

Guy cards can be a real challenge
but these SU products made it really easy
and the fact that Tommy LOVES boats, boating...
well, that just sealed the deal!

Off to do some serious flyladying to an overflowing bedroom-
gonna do a few rounds of 15 mins. today
and try to keep that up until it's done.
Tomorrow I will have the card
I need to make tonight for my dear friend Betsy
who has survived (hopefully!) another frantic tax season.
(she's a CPA!)

Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
