Happy Day

Today I'm sharing a quick card that I based on the sketch from Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  I wanted to make masculine cards as I always seem to be low on manly cards (do you feel the same too?) so I dug out the old manly papers from my stash to make this card:

Do you recognize the patterned paper?  The vertical stripes come from the old paper pack called Passages and the blue paper at the bottom comes from Lucky.  Back in those days CTMH's B&T paper was much thinner.  One side of it had a colored pattern while the other side had the same pattern in a monochromatic color scheme.  I've used the monochromatic side of these two papers here.

I've also used two retired stamp sets for the sentiment: Vintage Type and Bingo Alphabet.  Look cute together, don't you think?

This cardis entering the following challenges:
1.  Color My Heart Color Dare - Use two CTMH paper packs
2.  Heart 2 Heart Challenge - go Green [I'm so happy to use up the scraps!]
3.  Monday Lunchtime sketch challenge where the original sketch looks like this:


  1. I'm pretty sure I still have some Passages paper in my stash. Not sure about Lucky. Next Color Dare we should have a contest to see who can come up with the OLDEST paper pack! Thanks for joining us at Color My Heart...especially with a masculine card. We always seem to need those, don't we? Hope you will join us again this coming week.

  2. Lovely, Joyce! I didn't recognize them at all as they were before my time, lol. I really like that sketch for when you just need a creative boost. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Color Dare this week! :)

  3. Great quick and easy card. Good color combo also. Thanks for joining us at TSSC.


  4. I love to see cards that are easy to make and you chose great manly CTMH papers. Very nicely done! Thanks for playing along with us at Color My Heart Color Dare--hope you'll play along with us again soon!

  5. This just makes me smile. I love that Happy Day sentiment and how you added it to the card! Perfect masculine card, thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week, your samples is amazing!

  6. Great masculine card, Joyce! I like what you did with the alphabets to make the sentiment. I did recognize the Lucky paper, but never did get Passages, so I was clueless there. :) Thanks for joining in this week at Color My Heart!


  7. Great CAS design! Thanks for playing with us at H2H!

  8. What a perfect manly card, Joyce! I also never have enough of them on hand. May just have to 'lift this one as I have plenty of Passages and Lucky paper scraps left! Thanks for playing along with H2H this week!

  9. What a sweet card. Thanks for sharing with us at TSSC.
