Challenge # 168 - Something for the man in your life

Chat Noir here.....This is the time of year I have to rack my brains, thinking of things for the men in my life, and it would have been my husband's 60th on October 21 so it made me think of what I'd be making for him too.  This tag is what I came up with

Each drawer is named for something special in his life, his family, his cars, his football team and his school amongst others.........and of course his favourite movie, apart from The Blues BrothersSee more details on my blog.

Take this opportunity to make something without the frills and flowers just this once........for the man in your life.

Electra here.  There is no man in my life.  Poor me.  (lol) Except for my little 18 mos grandson.  And I couldn't think of what to make for him, he'll just eat it.  Even if it's paper.  He'll eat it.  So...........
I tried to think what I would make if I had some kind of a sweeite waiting at home for me after a long hard day at work.
What can I say?  It's been a long time.
Credits are on my blog.

Rosemary here and I think men actually like color, not frills per se but color.  I've been making cards for Operation Write Home and most of them tend to look appropriate for kids or female adult recipients. But what about women serving in the Armed Forces who want to correspond with their male partners?, with that in mind, I humbly submit two rather colorful but I think male-appropriate cards.

There is a manly plaid but a pop of color and texture (corduroy buttons).  CAS sort of...

and with this one - well, I had this awesome holographic cardstock and I thought - well, a birthday is festive and the circles just made it seem clean and modern and masculine to me.  I hope you think so.  The bling?  Well, confetti and firework-ey!  I ran it past my husband and he liked it (so with a control group of one, I'm good with it)

Deena Here: 

This is my most masculine attempt at a Christmas card...I am trying to get them done and mailed by around November 01 so I can include my new address before other people mail theirs's not like we moved 6 months ago or anything...oh I am so bad when it comes to mailing things Merry Christmas Deer it can take it literal or not...however you like it!

This isn't for somebody in my life, but rather made per the request of a friend. However, as I am posting this I realized that I have not made a birthday card for DH and his birthday is today! Ack! How do things like this happen? LOL I had better get busy!

My artwork was inspired by the a Bible passage about God, so I think that could qualify as the man in my life. Blessings!
