January Blues

Hello peeps hope you are well today. 

I struggle with cards for men so am going to make an effort to join in with more male orientated challenges this year to increase my stock. So, here is the first attempt ( as promised Julie)!!


Now, I really didn't need any more stamps BUT another accidental purchase happened after Kat shared a couple of cards using the Taylored Expressions Party Grumplings so, unfortunately, I had to get them!! They are just right for man cards so I am intending to get value from them. He was coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers and the spotty paper was from a Craftwork Cards pad. The perfectly coordinated button was from my button tin and I added some hemp twine to finish off.

I am playing here

Cardz 4 Guys #103 - Blue is the colour
Ruby's Rainbow #121 - Animal Magic
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Create with critters
Dream Valley challenges #123 - New (my stamp!!)
Love to scrap #70 - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion #295 - Anything Goes

I'm off to do more of my crochet blanket, and to keep warm while in the process!!

Have a lovely evening xx

  1. LOL!! This is too cute!! I think it's a great masculine style card! My hubby loves blue and humor is a great idea for a masculine design! :) I always need masculine style cards, so I try to make one up whenever I can. Thanks for sharing! HUGS
