I am proud of this card. You all know how hard it can be to make masculine cards. My brother in law is a huge Red Sox fan so I think he will like this. His birthday is next week.
Oh and I used markers with the Cricut to do the Happy Birthday part. I like how it turned out. I could have used stamps for it, but I really wanted to try out the markers.
and this is a challenge layout from another board. I had to incorporate song lyrics somewhere into the page. The journaling says "Then they do is a song by Trace Adkins. I cry every time I hear it. I know that Jamie & Allie will grow up one day, but I won't be ready."
Those were not an exaggeration either. I cry every single time I hear that song. I will never be ready for my babies to grow up!!
Aww, that song makes me all teary-eyed too! I can not believe how fast these kiddos grow...anyway, beautiful LO! I love that you are in lots of pictures with your little ones...I don't like the way I look in pictures, but I have VERY few pictures of me and the girls.
And great job on the masculine card. I know he will love it.
That man's card rocks. Great idea...and way to use the markers. I've GOT tp get mine back out and play with them, because I love the way your card looks.
I love every detail of the layout. The sewing, title, buttons, everything...and awesome song too!

cool card ... but I'd like it better with Yankee colors. ha ha ha ha but really, I think it's terrific!
I don't know the song you're talking about, but I certainly know the sentiment. beautiful layout (mainly because that's just a wonderful and tender moment captured in the picture to go with the song). Love it!
