Hi there!

A great friend of ours is celebrating his 50th birthday tomorrow!

Sometimes I wonder what happens to all the cards we make... Do you ever give it a thought ??
Especially those made for a male recipient?

With that in mind I decided to make a tag/bookmark. Perhaps its easier to keep, seeing that it is actually something a man can use, with men usually being  the more practical one of the human specie!

 I guess masculine doesn't necessarily mean monochromatic and dull... it can be bright and funny hey?!

The image and papers were both freebies downloaded from a online craft magazine.

This is a great tag. I agree with you. Masculine does not equate to boring, uptight and monochromatic. Thanks for joining us at Glitter Geeks. I hope to see you back next week.
