"Are There Any More Distinguished Gentlemen Around"

Hello Friends, Followers, Visitors and Viewers.
As a teenager you wanted your Knight in shining armor didn't you?
You wanted to find him or for him to find you so the two of you could go riding off into the sunset.

Some say chivalry is dead.  We don't have distinguished gentlemen any more.  You want the door open...he says "open it yourself."  You want him to walk on the outside facing the sidewalk for protection...he puts you there.   You want him to hold the chair for you to sit...he sits and looks at you wanting to know why are you still standing.  You waited for a Christmas present and didn't get one.  You are hoping a card and candy will come your way on Valentine's Day.  Maybe or maybe not!

Are there any men who classify as distinguished gentlemen today in 2016?  One came by my house and wanted a card to give to his sweetheart.  Basically, he wants to show her what I was up to with my talent.  He had seen some cards I had made during the Christmas holiday and he wants to share one of my cards with her.  He told me she likes things that are handmade because they seem to have more of  a meaning behind them than the factory made items.

Here is the card I made for him to give to his "sweetheart":

Supplies:

  • Neenah white; black and red Recollection cardstock
  • silver foil cardstock
  • MME Cupid's Arrow Designer paper
  • the use of a Fiskars corner punch; Spellbinders circle and heart die and Tim Holtz's script die
  • three black brads

The young man liked the way this card looked.  He also got three more that I had from last year.  Now, I'm waiting to hear the results from his sweetheart.  

Where does your male friend or husband rank?  Do you receive the distinguished gentleman act or someone who tells you to "do it yourself"?

Sending you a hug and LOVE,
Lois
