Quick and Easy Masculine Birthday Card

Hello, everyone!  Before I get started, I wanted to let you know that my facebook account has been locked and I have no access to it.  They did not like my name of Fit Kitty and asked for credentials.  I could not provide any government-issued ID with the name of Fit Kitty so that's that. I'm not a big facebook user and I thought about letting it go altogether, but I do seem to need it for certain things, so I've registered a new account - Karen Garber. I'm starting from scratch and will have to find all of my old friends and rejoin various groups.  So I'll eventually be around to befriend you in facebook but I wanted to warn you about it first!

Today I'm sharing a quick and easy masculine birthday card. My newest follower Bunny told me of a new challenge over at Time for Tea Designs so I wanted to join in! I searched through my files and found Moustache and Monocle Themed Digital Stamp Toppers, which was a freebie at one point. I thought it was perfect for their birthday challenge!

This card only took about 10 minutes to make.  A bit of die-cutting, a few fun cat face stickers, and it was done!

I would like to support these challenges (listed alphabetically): Catch the Bug Masculine 1/3; Craft Rocket For a Man or Boy 1/3; Craft Your Passion AG 1/3; Crafty Calendar Father's Day or For a Male 1/3; Creative Fingers AG 2/3; Creative Moments AG Optional Stitching 2/3; DL.ART June Linky UE 1/day; Dragonfly Journeys Daddy Day Care Father's Day or Masculine; Eureka Stamps Masculine or Father's Day 1/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Joy Clair Masculine and/or Father's Day; Kitty Bee Aloha Friday Masculine Cards/For Dad 1/2; Lunagirl Moonbeams Fathers and Brothers 1/3; Not Just Cards June AG UE; One Stitch at a Time Layer it Up UE; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 1/3; QKR Stampede One for the Guys 1/3; Sasayaki Glitter Male Project 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Animal Magic 1/5; SUYP Cats Only Furry-thing Goes UE; Time for Tea Birthday 1/2; Word Art Wednesday AG Uplifting Sentiment 2/5

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Fabulous card Kitty! The images are so cute and I love the design.
I'm not a Facebook fan! I know lots of bloggers prefer it as it's much quicker to click "like" than visiting blogs which is s shame for blogland.
