One for the boys

When it comes to making cards, there's just so much stuff out there for making pretty, girly cards.  Masculine cards though, are a different matter, and it's nice to know there are a few challenge blogs out there dedicated to blokey cards, and that others sometimes put up "for the boys" as the theme.

I made this card for a particular friend whose birthday is next week, and I chose this digi-stamp (from www.simplyinger.blogspot.com) especially for him as it reminded me of the time, when we were both around 10 or 11, that I buried him and another friend in a huge snowdrift and took a photo of them both with just their heads and arms sticking out of the snow.

It's just a very simple one-layer card, without any sentiment on the outside; inside I stamped 'happy birthday'.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

DigiDoodleShop Challenge #94 - One for the Boys
Hotshot Craft Challenge #4 - One one for the Boys
SweetNSassi Digis SNSDC40 - Hat off to you (any image or element that includes a hat and uses a digi image)
KaboodleDoodles - Where the boys are
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #12 - One for the men or boys
