Happy Birthday Jeff!

Jeff is an entrepeneur extraordinaire!  He is the busiest man I know - and has that capability to take an idea and build it into the most fabulous computer businesses - from caviar to knee-walkers!

    1. Brilliant card gorgeous papers and love the turned corner. The sentiment with a bold happy birthday works well Ginny x My Blog As I do Rodos

    2. So cute, Ginny! Love that curled corner. Thanks so much for playing along in our "Celebrations" challenge at Quirky Crafts this month. Good luck in the draw and come play again.

    3. Super card, my friend! The little guy looks like he could just step off the card front and onto my desk. Cool effect!

    4. You nailed your needs here, Ginny, a perfect guy card! Great coloring (no surprise there!), but I like that little unsuspected folded down corner touch. I think I'm going to have to steal that one from you. I am so with you on the 'mail-able' bit. What good is a great looking card if you can't afford to mail it?! And (in my own opinion, mind you) why make cards you don't mail?

    5. What a fun card. Even non entrepreneurial guys would be pleased with this card. That turned over corner is a nice touch!

    6. How darling is this image! You colored him perfectly!!! Now I gotta go check out Micron pens!! lol

      Thanks for playing along with our "Something New, Something Old" challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters. Happy New Year!
