Down the local!!

Hello everyone, unusual for me to be here on a Sunday evening but have managed to grab a few minutes to myself for a bit of blogging and thought why not?!! Anyway, I know I am not alone in saying that the male species are often difficult to make cards for. However, I think this one fits the bill for almost any age.

 It's a digi from Buddly Crafts called " Down the local" that I coloured with Promarkers to compliment the digi papers, also from Buddly Crafts. The pint's "head" was glittered, the glass had a touch of glossy accents and I added the button and twine from my stash to finish off. 

Some challenges to play

A Gem Of A Challenge #155 - Spots and/or stripes
That's Crafty - Boys will be boys
Cardz 4 Guys # 91   - Button it

Enjoy the rest of the day xx

Super masculine card Sarah and perfect for this week's challenge over at Cardz4Guyz. Thanks for linking up.
The weather is a tad autumnal this afternoon and Al lit the log burner last night as sure sign that autumn is well on it's way. :)

A fabulous card Sarah, a great image - like you say perfect for those difficult masculine cards.

Was thinking about you earlier Sarah and wondered if your grass is having a late flush like ours, was quite surprise when I walked the paddocks earlier how it's perked up the last week. Mind you the boys still look for their buckets so probably not a lot of nutrient in it.

A super masculine card.

Lovely card Sarah. Really fabulous.

Kat W said...

It's hard enough to make male cards without also accounting for the age of the recipient but I agree, this is suitable for any age...over 18 of course!
A brilliant design and the twine/button detailing looks great :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

Sue said...

I agree wholeheartedly Sarah - blokes cards are sticky!! - and being in house of men I feel well qualified to make that observation! This card is fab though and one I may well take inspiration from - the image is fun and you have put it together perfectly with the colours you have chosen and the papers you have used.

*Vicki* said...

Such a brilliant masculine design!! Love the papers and colors to go with your image! ;) HUGS

Asha said...

So true, Sarah. NOT easy making cards for men...and they call us difficult to please! Hah! This card is perfect for a guy... in fact, stick a pint in anything and that'll please him!
hugs, Asha
