Masculine Plaid Cards

Grandpa Gold in his heart

A lady requested this quote for her grandpa’s birthday. It was a good thing that my local scrapbook store found some very old BasicGrey papers in their storage room. They had one sheet of this so I picked it up along with some others. Good thing I did because it was perfect for this saying….at least I thought so!
I used Freshly Made Sketches 276 as my inspiration.

So I had a last minute order where the guy needed a graduation card for his grandson. He wanted 3 doors with signs and a male graduate on the card. This is what I came up with. Not super happy with the doors but that is all I could come up with quickly. He liked it so I guess it worked.

Hang In There2

So the lady at work wanted a card for her BFF whose husband has been injured and not healing. Been a long road but they finally found out he has something that keeps him from healing. There is no cure but they can manage it now that they know he has it. My co-worker wanted to encourage her friend during this time.
