World Cardmaking Day: Masculine

The fifth challenge from Winnie & Walter is to make a masculine card.  Easy-peasy!  I have two teenage sons who routinely need encouragement. My 19-year old is living on his own for the first time and dealing with all of those life things that so often get in the way - "Mom, Dad, my car won't start", "Mom, my employer only gave me two shirts but I work six days in a row and the laundromat is expensive", "Mom, how do I fix my hamburger after I used an entire handful of dried oregano"!! LOVE his phone calls!  And I love surprising him with cards in his mailbox. My 15-year old is just a busy guy and there's always a need to encourage or applaud.  So I am well stocked for masculine cards.  Here's an arrow die that I had purchased just to point at a big sentiment.

WCMD You Are Amazing

I don't know which son is going to get this - because they are both pretty awesome!!!  (Also remember that I am home alone all weekend so I am feeling quite loving toward everybody since nobody is here to annoy me!)  But I'll put it away for when it is needed.

great masculine/feminine card! Did I ever tell you that you are so wonderful with that category of card making? The ability to make a unisex card with a unique sentiment? Its true! Maybe its because you are a witty woman surrounded by men!

Your cards for your sons always make me smile! Your boys are so fortunate to have your support and encouragement! The arrows are fantastic as is that bold sentiment! Handful of oregano? Sounds like something I'd do!
