Happy B-day Homer!

What the what??? It's February? Already? Sigh . . . I'm guessing I should start working on this year's Christmas Cards!! But . . . not today! hehe! Hey there, m'darlins, it's Thursday and that means it's time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! And, of course, since this is the first challenge of the month, this week's theme is . . .
Anything Goes!

Beware! There are NO FLOWERS or ribbons or frilly things whatsoever!! But I did do a little paper-piecing! What'cha think?
Today's card is for my sweet brother-in-law (my sister, Dee's husband). His name is Greg . . . but he answers to "Homer" . . . dubbed that by his kids shortly after Homer Simpson first appeared on television some 20+ years ago! Our "Homer" is an avid golfer . . . and he's having a pretty big birthday next week . . . the big 6-0!! Here's a close-up of this handsome golfer . . . he's such a snappy dresser! hehehe!
This image is called "Big Guy Golfing" and you can find it HERE in Mo's online store. Here's a side view . . .

My Card "Recipe" . . .
Very Vanilla cardstock: Stampin' Up
DPs: K&Company and Cosmo Cricket
Labels 18 die: Spellbinders

A peek at the inside . . .
And . . . one last photo . . .
Fun, huh? OK . . . now it's your turn . . . but before you get craftin', first you'll want to head on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog to check out the fabulous projects created by my talented DT sistahs! Then, please join us in this week's "Anything Goes" challenge. It's easy . . . just pull out your craft supplies and at least one Mo Manning image and start creating!!

Oh . . . and don't forget, Mo is awarding (selected at random) one $5.00 shopping spree at her online store for every 25 challenge participants! What an easy and fun way to get some new Mo images, right?!

And . . .  that's it for me! Thank you so much for stopping by . . . and, as always, for your kind comments. Hugs . . . until next time.

Stunning male card, Pat! The golfer really seems to be made for your BIL and you dressed him up very stylish! LOL Love the entire card layout and also the inside looks great, esp. the repetition of the image! Have to keep that in mind ... ;-)
Hugs, Anja
