Men cards..

.. at last I am back with a couple of cards, the first was a quick make for a party Tom had been invited to:The image is a Bugaboo Freebie, coloured with promarkers and matted onto black card, then red card. The footballs at the front where from a Smirk pack that I stamped and punched out and coloured.

The next is for Ians cousin, who is a joiner and has recently moved house that needs a LOT doing to it, so he is always working:

What a faff on this was. I thought I had used just an ordinary square card blank, until I'd finished and stood it up and saw the fancy edge at the back - ooh poo (or something similar!!) - were my thoughts and I liked the layout so I cut the back off and made it into an easle card.

The image is a Digi Stamp Boutique coloured with pro-markers, then used two papers from my stash and matted onto red card. Finally adding, a button, card candy and twine again from my stash.

I am really pleased with how he eventually turned out.
