Birthday Elf

I make cards for all the fellas in my family -  husand, sons, 
brothers, nephews and grand nephews.  So . . . I thought I 
would dedicate a few more blog posts to all the boys and 
men in my life. Hope you find something that inspires you!!

 Looking for ideas for a birthday card for a man (or boy) in your life? 
Sometimes, the perfect image can be hiding in your stash!!

The little elf from Merry Pursuits. (Christmas/winter set from Close to My Heart) 
was chosen for a birthday card  -  he's holding a wrapped parcel (birthday gift ?)  
By using a blue, red and yellow colour scheme instead of green and red, 
the little Christmas elf was transformed into the perfect birthday fellow!!

Happy Canada day to you! I find it so inspiring how you manage such magnificent masculine and mini men cards. Case and point being this handsome little number. Love it!

Love that you used a Christmas stamp for a non-Christmas card. Love getting the extra miles out of the money that way. Perfect colors for a boy too....your coloring with pencils is such a fun whisical touch. Have a great holiday weekend!
