CAS HB

DSCF6555
Happy sunny Monday!  Woohoo!  I got my computer back and there was nothing wrong with it….go figure!  But that is good news, so I am pretty happy!  I have a real CAS card to share today, totally inspired by this card of Mary Brown’s—and it completes three challenges:
So “HB” is not really a monogram, but it does stand for Happy Birthday and since I needed a birthday card for my nephew’s upcoming big day, I thought this would a good masculine card:

I find it difficult to do cards for teenage boys, but he plays several instruments and is in jazz band, so I hope this somewhat appeals to him.  The flourish may be a little questionable but I imagine what’s inside is probably more important to him!!!  The card is glossy white (when was the last time you used that?) so it has a real contemporary flair.  The music wheel was stamped in Stazon; the flourish in Sahara Sand and the dots in Going Gray, stamped off once!  The Basic Black letters are die cut from the Timeless Type Alphabet.  Oh, and the music that inspired me was “Happy Birthday to You”!!! LOL!

One of the reasons I was worried about my computer crash were these pix of Cassidy a couple weeks ago as I was cleaning:

Ah, the imagination of a child….and no, it wasn’t running!  And hopefully I'll get her to USE it one of these days!!!

  5. Wonderful card LeAnne - so perfect for a boy and I have so many musical boys in my life that I'm definitely going to have to case this! Isn't she just too cute - you might have to really watch out if she does actually start using that thing though - she might just sweep up everything in her path. Too cute! ~chris

  20. I'm sooosooo happy for you that you didn't lose these precious pictures of Cassidy - what a doll.
    Your melodious card is very elegant in black and white. It's a perfect guy card - especially for a teenager playing in a band.
