Because You Are Too Nice To Forget

Hello, today something for a male :-) kind of a drastic change compared to the last few cards, posted :-) I need a card for my step-father and omg i can not believe it how in time iam. The card came together with that new Fiskars punch i bought the other day. Isn't it crazy.. i thought its a nice match to the Marrakech paper and the Magnolia "Elephant". Oh well.. spent money in the past on other crazy things lol.

 The inside of the card says "because you are too nice to forget ~ Happy Birthday"
Stamps: Magnolia Rubberstamps "Pet Collection" 2009 Elephant, Sentiment: Stampin up "older and wiser" (retired)
Basic Grey 6x6 "Marrakech"
Tools: Fiskars border punch
Embellishments: Stampin up, Recollections

Another great card Claudia and i know wich stamp i'm going to buy, they say elephants don't forget , but i do.

This is a very nice way to let people know that you haven't forgotten them at all.

Thanks for the inspiration,

Hugs Yvon.

this is... handsome :-)
You think it's silly you bought a punch to match a paper collection ? I once bought papers that I thought was cute, then I bought a pair of pants for Ninna. Never got around to take the pic... she was 3 then... still have the paper :-)

Dear Claudia, a fabulous card. Cute Elphie (I've been calling him/her that as no one seems to have a name for him/her. LOL). Beautiful DP's. Love the colours--lots of different colour but they go together well. Terrific sketch.
