Masculine Card ~ Another Stationary Set

I am finally getting around to posting the masculine birthday card for my swap on SCS. The paper I was given to work with had a really masculine feel. I don't usually work with too much black and grey, so after coloring the little fur ball I thought the card needed something extra, so I gave it some bling lol, ok maybe not so masculine now but I tried!
I am also posting a picture of a stationary kit made with Paper Trey paper and ribbon (black and white - go figure). I made for a friend of mine who is going through a rough time. I hope this little surprise picks her up a bit, if only bringing a smile to her face and a happy moment to her day. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff.
I have a nice weekend ahead, really nothing planned, just spending some time with a good friend. I am looking forward to it :)Last night I cooked him a special meal and he loved it! I was afraid it might not turn out so good because I had never made the dish before. It was delicious if I say so myself. He also gave me an idea to take pictures of my meals and create a recipe scrapbook....I am going to do that. I am in a recipe swap on SCS so that idea came at the right time. That is another hobby I want to get into (cooking that is), can that be considered a hobby? I only like to do it when I am not forced to.
Well August is here, enjoy every minute!

Very cute! I find it always so hard for me to make masculine cards. Great job!
