I just sent out my Feb newsletter….so it's been a very productive day today!  The NEW email provider has had a slight learning curve so BEAR with me!  Now, I have a REALLY quick Masculine Birthday Card sample to share with you.  How do I know that it's a quick card….well…I shared my 11th Hour scrapbook page with you last week and so I'll share my 11th Hour card with you today.  We had a busy weekend and so I found myself cutting cardstock for class early this morning and found I didn't like one of my cards…so yes, at 8:30 I was looking for a replacement for Card #5.  I needed a card for my Dad's birthday tomorrow, I needed a card without ribbon (yes, it's a challenge in my world!), and I needed it QUICK.  I happened upon a card that was stamped by one of my downline, Amy Pieters.  I changed the birthday saying, added a stamped inside, added some punched circle images, added another fish and removed the "ribbon" (ok, it was thread) but I wanted to actually stamp a card without anything knotted or tied! 

I had the card changed up and  all the cardstock cut for 12 students before 9:15!  So yes, I KNOW it's a quick one…
