OWH MWT - masculine cards

Go figure - this is actually Christmas paper, but it feels very masculine to me. I could see my dad sending this card to a hunting buddy of his, you know?

I used sketch #83 from the sketch challenges:

The red background is actually a piece of vinyl, I think. Don't ask me where it's from, I just dug it out of the scrap bin and thought, "huh. this would work."
Papers are Basic Grey Jovial collection,  sentiment is Lizzie Anne Designs and nesties labels 8 for the die cut.

I am incredibly scattered this week. See this cute face?

That's the face of epilepsy. My oldest was diagnosed this week. She's five. We are very busy learning all sorts of things to help keep her safe. Her class is busy learning that seizures mean people can fall down and get hurt, and if Nora has a seizure again in class, they have to go tell a teacher. They all thought the pictures of her 'brain waves' (the EEG printout) were pretty cool, though. :)

Come play along with the MWT over at the Stars & Stamps blog. And if you would, say a little prayer for us. I'm Tired with a capital T.



  1. Like the card. Said a prayer for your daughter and you. She is a cutie pie!

  2. I said a prayer for your family. Love the card...that moose or reinder paper is super.

  3. Great card. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. She is beautiful, by the way. Thanks for sharing your creation. Know that people and prayers are with you throught this medical journey you must take. Keep your chin up.

  4. Saying a prayer for you and your daughter. :)

    I love the idea of using Christmas papers for something other than a Christmas card. That plaid is just like a cuddly flannel shirt!

  5. Great card! Love those papers and sentiment! Gotta use the scraps! Thinking of you and your family.

  6. Hi Jen your masculine card is super! Sorry to hear your daughter has epilepsy, hopefully now that she's been diagnosed they can get it under control for her. You and your family are in my prayers. Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home!

  7. Hi Jen, I hope the beautiful cards you make will continue to be a good outlet for you as you deal with your little one's health issue. She is positively adorable. God bless her, and your family!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
