A Beer Loving Friend

We have a great friend who is big into beer and barbecue.  Family dinners are fabulous because he has a smoker, a Big Green Egg grill and a brand new pellet grill.  For his birthday, I thought about a card with a grill, but my lowly charcoal grill die just didn't stand up to his arsenal of high-tech grilling options. So I settled on his second passion - beer!

Who is Counting

I used the Little Bits - Mug die by Taylored Expressions then I googled "colors of beer" and came up with this rainbow of colors!

Who is Counting CloseUp

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Bash Sentiments - it seemed just perfect for a row of beer mugs. Then to keep the theme going on the inside I used the "live longer" sentiment from Another Year Older by Taylored Expressions (upper left corner) - but I added something...

"Studies show:
Those who have more 
birthdays (and beer!) 
live longer." 

I think this will go over well - particularly when paired with the six-pack that goes with it!



  1. Well, I do live in Wisconsin after all, lol! I don't actually drink beer. Or anything containing me migraines, and boy would a nice cold mug of beer on a hot summer's day be nice every now and then! Great card! LOVE all those little mugs! What a fun card for your friend! Hoist one for me! Bev

  2. Love, love, love!! I could make a ton of these and give these to my friends!! Great design!!

  3. I think he'll get a kick out of it Kim, great card! Who knew beer came in so many pretty colors!

  4. This is a fantastic masculine card!! Who knew beer came in so many colors lol! Really great job tying the theme together inside and out.

  5. Your friend will certainly delight in this card, as would my husband. Beer, mugs, the sentiment: brilliant!
