Male cards inc Fathers day

I've had a busy week, and have been making some much needed male cards...

 I was wrapping a friends birthday pressie the other day and had some left over wrapping paper.
I thought it would be spot on for a simple card I had in mind,
using the kraft cards I bought at Samuel Taylors in Leeds this week. 
Buttons from stash, Digi sentiment, and wrapping paper!


 This is a lovely Trinitage image that I bought a while ago. I made it for Hubbys Dad 
as he likes this type of holiday...in little picturesque fishing villages.
I decoupaged some of the scene.


 This is an image I love, from S.J.Musings   and I have used it a number 
of times for different cards.
I decoupaged it and popped on two cats....  
as they look very similar to the two cats my Mum and Dad have.


I found the website that lets you print off your own keep calm poster.
So I made this one and then embossed lines as though they were a continuation 
of the union jack.

Brilliant selection of cards, they are all fabulous, I especially like the use of left over wrapping paper, such a simple card but a striking, great look.

Great Cards Vic, just love the one with Staithes on. I live just across the moors from this adorable old place. Spent many happy days there.
