Old Bond Street Card

Hi Ladies (and a few men)!

I hope you're all enjoying our Autumn. It is my very favorite time of year!! I love the falling leaves and the puddles for jumping in, sitting by the cozy firesplace when the weather gets nippy,  pumpkin pie (correction: ANY pie!) and the weather actually seems the best here this time of year. Not too hot, not too cold!

I'm getting off track though. October is a busy birthday month for us. I have five of them and all but one are far away. Which means making the cards and getting them sent asap along with their gifts. 

So here's one card I got done. It has a vintage-y feel to it.
Everything goes well together, I just couldn't get the photo color right. In any case, I hope he likes it! 

Well, I'm off to make dinner!
Have a cozy weekend!


  1. Nice card---I have a harder time with masculine cards--cute is easy; I have to think a bit more on masculine.

  2. Carmen, this is a great masculine card. Thanks for the inspiration.


Thanks for the comments!
