Friends of Unity Blog Hop June 2023 ~ Masculine

Hello, friends! Welcome to our June 23 Blog Hop with the ever so popular cue "Masculine".

I think most of us often struggle with creating Masculine cards. I'm certain you will find much inspiration throughout this hop! Enjoy!

My first card uses the work boots and a sentiment from the March 23 KOM.
Oh if these boots could talk. They'd speak from the heart of a man working for his future. For his family. Perhaps, for his future family. These boots represent my sons and my hard working precious husband. Who do they represent for you?

I cut out the middle pair and popped them up. I love the way they just lean over the I love you. My Daughter in law Jessie is giving this card to our son Billy Joe for his July birthday.

This next card uses the gorgeous vintage typewriter from the new June KOM. This card screams messy masculine vintage! Right?! I do love it.

Do you notice the glaze on the keys?? I love how the clear Nuvo drops I used created a realistic shine! You can also get the drops here at Unity!

As always I would love to know which is your favorite!

 I hope you’ll  join our Masculine cue and create some new cards to share in Unity Show & Tell! Please, TAG ME if you do. I would truly love to see them and read what inspires you to create!!

My hope is that you read through the entire blog. Makes my heart so happy thinking you do!

As always~

Until next time~

Be blessed, friends!
