tall and skinny {50}

Happy Friday {night}! 

This week it's finally beginning to feel a little like autumn around here --yay!  My oldest daughter has been talking about it for weeks already, and so I think it's definitely time for me to start breaking out my recipes for all things pumpkin.  Yum!  

Well, the card I'm sharing today is one I made for my youngest younger brother...who's technically not all that "young" anymore, I suppose.  Of course, age is just a number, and regardless of that number, you can still be young at heart --that's what I like to think anyway.  ;)  

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  {I've rarely made "tall and skinny" cards, but playing along with the theme of the sketch seemed only fitting this time, as it describes my brother pretty well so I thought I'd give it a go.}  I tried to make it masculine looking, but I'm not sure I succeeded.  Oh, well....ya win some and ya lose some, I suppose.  

Here's his card:
I still have a few more cards to make in the next couple weeks, but I think they're going to have to wait a little bit.  My weekend will likely be spent in the garden, trying to wrap things up for the season.  Whatever you have planned, I hope you enjoy your weekend.

Thanks for the visit, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!

Oooh...yes, autumn has arrived! There is a definite nip in the wind now. I'll bet your house smells heavenly when you get to baking and making your pumpkin recipes. Your card looks amazing to me. I do believe it has a definite masculine feel and I hope your brother appreciates the effort you made in creating this. The paper you used for the 50 is very nice! I really like that pattern. The banner gives it a festive feel and you chose great gems to give it a little flair. Thanks so much for sharing, Christi. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs!

It's a great card! The colors are definitely masculine, there are no ribbons (or bows) and the texture should appeal. I think it works beautifully! I love it!
