Card Request

Recently my dear blogging friend Sue (Sharing What I Love) posted a request for anyone willing to send her husband a birthday card. On the 22nd of this month John will be celebrating his 90th birthday and Sue would love to present him with 90 cards on his special day. Sue is also planning an Open House and his cards will be on display at the celebration. If you would like to send John a card, please email Sue for her address at

This is the birthday card I made for John. I always have a hard time coming up with masculine cards; maybe I need to challenge myself to make them more often.

Thanks for visiting and thank you, in advance, to those of you that send John a card.
