Masculine Cards

I guess I should introduce myself again....haven't posted for a long time.  Was sick for about 3-4 weeks with Bronchitis.  Hope you all faired better this past winter.  But spring has arrived and I have been playing with Art Impressions' stamps preparing for the holidays to come.  Before we know it Father's day will be here and you will be looking for ideas.  I hope you will try these stamps.  I had such a good time making these cards.
Hope you enjoy my efforts.  Mary
