why are cards for men and boys SUCH a challenge??

Evening all,

Every now and then I make cards that are not samples(;-)) Cards for men and boys continue to be a challenge - nearly as much as buying them presents! But, as one of my nephew's birthday loomed nearer it was time to bite the bullet and here's the result - what do you think?

In case anyone wonders the London Skyline is an x -cut set.

It's gonna be a bright, sunshiny day...tomorrow...possibly

Well at least Sheena's shows at 9 a.m. and 3 tomorrow on Create and Craft  should be bright and cheerful even if we can't rely on the weather!!

A trip to India may be just what I need ...hmm...! So onto a couple of sneak peeks: Other than on the sentiment  on the second card no stamps were used purely folders. The elephants are cut from the elephant embossing folder and the ornate  screen and lattice used on the background.

The second card is using the fab mandalla folder distress inks and a bit of silks used as a resist.

I love the loud colours and hope you approve? ;-)

I can see....2 Sheena Shows on Create and Craft Monday 12 May!

Evening folks!

Just popping by to share the great news that Sheena is reprising her recent Indian collection on Create and Craft on Monday 12th May at 9 am. and 3 p.m.

So there will be more demos, ideas tips and treats in store! I do love the collection and used a variety of the folders together with just the backing papers on the Sheena's Indian CD (that the Inkoids helped create ;-) ) to jazz up this mirror (that cost peanuts) from that well known Swedish store!

The embossed card has just a touch of gilding wax . The whole thing just made me smile and was a really quick make too!

Have a fabbie evening
