A Fall Birthday Card

Dude Time Doodles is sponsoring Pile It On - Challenge 44 For the Birthday Boy this week so I just had to participate! I have been looking for a fun reason to use Leif Blower. Leaves are everywhere around here this weekend as the wind has been crazy. Good thing my DH has a tractor with a rake and a brand new leaf blower. He pointed out that his leaf blower is red and not gray like on my card, but I told him that red didn't go with the Fall colors I picked out for my card. I used the Seems a Little Sketchy Sketch for my card because it is such a fun one. My daughter told me it doesn't look like a birthday card on the front, but birthday presents make a great harvest! I know this because I am harvesting them now (my birthday is Thursday) - today I got a Press and Seal from my youngest daughter - I have been playing with it and it works great.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Pile It On - #44 For the Birthday Boy
Seems a Little Sketchy - Sketch #24
Digistamps4Joy Challenge #53 - Anything Goes With a Male

Hope you all have had a great weekend and those in the path of Sandy are staying safe! I stayed in Jammertown today and have had two naps - what a great day!

  12. That leaf blower reminds me of my hubby. He has a lot to blow every time he cuts the grass. Of course, that time is just about over. Leaves are everywhere now. I think I'll just about freeze tonight doing Halloween. Yes, it is still so windy.
    Great card. Happy 'soon to be' birthday.

  13. How cute. Just think years ago we had to do so much raking and no The leaves don't fall around here until Christmas believe it or not. From Christmas until about March we have lots of leaves. Great masculine card and love the colors.
    Bear hugs,Carol
