Birthday Card For A Man Using Anna Griffin Products

Hello friends! I hope everyone is having time to craft.  I have had less time to craft; because I am trying to get healthier; which takes time and energy.  I know crafting helps keep my stress level down; but how do all of you manage to work in exercise plus all the other things that need to be done in your home?

I created these three cards last year; but haven't had time to post them.  I know they aren't the same as my regular cards; but sometimes you don't want a fancy card for a man; especially if they are just going to throw them away.  LOL!  I doubt that very many men keep their cards.  

These were created for 3 of the golfers in my family.  The top one was for my grandson, Trey (He just graduated last year from Golfing school in Myrtle Beach, SC)  The brown background was for my son, Aaron; who lives in Argentina (Missionary) and the bottom right one was for my Brother-in-law, Darrell.  All 3 are avid golfers.  My brothers, Buddy and David also golf; but I ran out of golf toppers.  LOL!

Supplies used to create these cards are:

Card Base - Anna Griffin Perfect Patterns for Him 
Toppers - Anna Griffin Collage Card Toppers For Him
Sentiments inside - Anna Griffin Artfully Said (Used different sentiments)
