I am soooooo late. My son's birthday was the 19th and he just got his card today. I am so far behind in everything that in a race I would look like I was in first place.
He has a trophy elk rack in his room, which I fondly refer to as the animal cemetery, hanging over his head in bed!!! I hope we never have an earth quake!!! This image is almost as big as the rack in his room. There is not one inch of room anywhere on his walls that does not have an animal skin, rack or picture of an animal on it. His buffalo head is in MY family room and I have threatened that his head will be next if I find another one any where than HIS room!! I also made one of these cards for my Send Love Today guy named Mark.
Thank you for looking. Comments appreciated.

OMGosh, this is amazing! Being on your tree makes it all that more manly too. You did a mighty fine job cutting out those trees. Love that tree border punch on top. Thank you again for mine. Your elk, that is an elk right?, any way it is the perfect image for this card for Troy. Maybe he'll hang it off the antlers in his room. Wouldn't that be fun. Sis, You Done Good. TFS :0)

Agh...men! Animal cemetery? You kill me Sput! Well, I think Troy will feel blessed, no matter how late. This card is super-masculine. I have seen that tree border punch, but had no idea it could do this! (Make sure he doesn't use this purty card for target practice, k?) Great work. Hugs, Buttnik

Oh such a neat card. Love your popped up trees w/this scene. Oh, you've created a master piece here I think. Troy was probably disappointed his card makin' mother couldnt even make a card on time. He and I are still struggling w/the whole whithered and arthiritic hands you must use to create these gems of yours. Hopefully, he was understanding, given your age and all. Honestly, at your age and with those hands, I'm in awe that you can create anything much less a work of art like this. Hang in there; it only gets worse from here.

Woo Hoo Sput, you're giving Pat Smethers competition on the masculine cards here I see. What a great one. LOVE the trees and the image is done so well! I know your son LOVED this card even if it was a tad bit late!!! At least if this one falls on his head, he won't be injured, right???? Beautiful job!! TFS!!

Beautiful colors on this wonderful card...your son is going to love it, for sure! I enjoyed reading about his room...sounds like my son and some of his friends. Funny how the things that we gripe about will become dear to us just because they love them.
