I don't think these are my typical cards, but I just couldn't help myself. I went through my bin of Cuttlebug accessories and had to use the KIDS' Cuttlebug stuff!!! I used the party hat for the banner and I love it! On the bottom card, I used the kids' tulip die. I even used the Cuttlekids cutter! It's so tiny and did an excellent job cutting. It's a shame they didn't make it the right size to accept the border embossers. I think it would be a lot more popular if they had. But, I am impressed with the dies. Some of them are quite detailed and they're all really cute!

Belated masculine birthday card

My dad's birthday was in January. He's getting it today. I have a great excuse though. They (Mom and Dad) went snowbirding right before his birthday and have just returned. I made the card today. Hmmmm. Procrastination at its finest? I had visions of having a great card made and having it and his gift sitting on their dining room table so he'd be surprised when he got home. Yep. It was a great vision.

I love the SU Cool Tools stamp set. It's perfect for any guy, but especially my dad! He's one of those guys that can fix anything, build anything! I paper pieced some of the tools, computer generated the sentiment, and randomly stamped the background. He'll love it.
