Super easy B-Day card for a guy!

Ok, so I kept reminding myself it was my brother's birthday, and I had to get a card made, but I so dislike making masculine cards (because I can never think of what to do) that I kept putting it off. So, I was at storytime with my kids at the mall, and went to the card store to buy one (GASP! - I know, but it was getting close and I had nothing!). Then I came across this concept from, I think Papyrus, and said to myself "I can do that!". So I went home and reproduced it; it isn't an original idea, but very cute nonetheless!

I used Very Vanilla cardstock for the base. Used what I think is 18-gauge wire to make the shape of the hanger and used a glue dot behind the top part to secure it to the card. The sentiment is Papertrey's Paper Tray of course, stamped in Staz On Black. The ties are made out of MME Magnolia collection scraps. I love those papers! Super easy and quick! One the inside I stamped my own sentiment that read, "Tie One On - he-he!". I think he liked it, or at least got a kick out of it! He laughed when he left his message on the voice mail!
It's kind of dreary here right now, no rain, just gray. I like days like that, but somehow today I can't muster up the energy to get the kids out of the house! Right now that are playing well together, but you know that it is just a matter of time...
Hope you enjoy your day!
