There is nothing hoagie about your birthday!

Get it?  Heh... OK! I know, bad joke!  I couldn't resist though... :)  There is also nothing hokey about this post.  You may think it is a joke because there are no challenges, no Guest DT, just something I made for an upcoming birthday- for FUN!  Believe it!

So this card is for a guy birthday.  In my head I was thinking, what do guys like...tools, cars, fishing, etc...  How about a big hoagie!  They like sandwiches with lots of layers of stuff with a beer in the other hand and football on TV right?!  Well I hope it is true because that is what I went for here.  Actually the guy I have in mind for this card is a foodie, so I think he'll like it.  I used my new Paper Smooches Set Think Fast.  I also played up the summer aspect with the paper that looked like a picnic tablecloth and the brown card stock is embossed with woodgrain to give you the feel of a picnic table.  So this card is a big deal, just like the sentiment says! :)  Oh and speaking of big deals, there is a July DT blog hop  over at Paper Smooches with a give away- check it out!

It's time for the...(wait for it)...Question of the Day.  So today's question is- what kinds of things does one (or all) of the dudes like in your life that might be a good card theme or gift for them?

Also, I wanted to show you this fabulous card I received form Virginia Lu!  What a sweet, sweet woman she is and such an amazing designer!!!!!  Check out this fab card!  I love how she used the chalboard technique with this old time image!

7/26/13 ETA- Per instructions from one Savannah O'Gwynn, I am entering this into the Moxie Fab World Birthday Card Challenge.  With directions from someone as cool as that how can I not?!  While I am at it I might as well enter it into the Seize the Birthday Challenge. :)

Your hoagie card has me in smiles! The colors are so vibrant and yummy! Perfect for a foodie guy! I had an authentic hoagie when I was in Penn State in May! It was SOOOO good, but so bad for you (LOL)!Thanks for sharing my card! It is always nice to send a card to a card-making friends! I hope to do it more often!

A: not sure what the guys in my life like. It's only my brothers, father-in-laws, father, Poppie, and Trav.... So maybe music and technology.... Good question:)
