Friday Fun Day

It is odd that we look forward to weekends (TGIF) even though we are retired.  But sometimes weekends are still really special because it is then that we get to have grandchildren come for a visit.  Two are here today and two more until Monday.  But before anyone arrived, I took the time to make a card.
Using stamps from two different unity sets, I also used the sketch at Unity
The patterned papers are miscellaneous.  The heart with twine is punched out with a SU punch.

Could you do me a favor?  When I made this, I had a grown son in mind. So when you comment, would you let me know if you think it is okay as a masculine card or is it too feminine.

  13. This card is fabulous! The color palette is so absolutely brilliant and YES- it is absolutely perfect for a guy! I'm sure your son already knows you're talented, but this should prove it! It is tender and touching without being overly froofy or frilly. The clean lines are also very man-approved, I'm sure. I thought it was just right in every way and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!
