Mens Cards..

_MG_1175 (Medium)_MG_1176 (Medium)_MG_1178 (Medium)There comes a time in every cardmakers calender when they have to do mens cards and mine was this week when it was time to book my June craft fair spot. Mens cards are always last on the list! This year I had some new dies to use so made it a lot easier, and I had my very old stamps which are dug out every year, stamped and coloured and teamed up with newer purchases to refresh the look. I kept the general layout very plain cos blokes really don’t like fussy! Next Saturday I have our first crafty girls gathering of the year so I have been very busy organising that and I am so looking forward to catching up with all the girls. Til next time….

A Boys Card..

_MG_1174 (Medium) A quick boys card today with some dies that I sourced, cut in a few different colours of stampin up cardstock and googly eyes added. The papers are old bits that I stumbled on while sorting out stash , which led to the making of this card…see how I get distracted?As you can guess the great destash continues….will it ever end? Til next time…

October Afternoon Sidewalk

I love the  clear colours of October Afternoon papers, and this new collection called Sidewalk is no exception. I have used the matching Miscellany pak and the card just fell together. The good thing about this paper pad is that it matches perfectly with previous releases so not too much thinking required to put papers together! In other good news today, all my blog and e-mail problems are finally ironed out – Yay! I didn’t realise how much I enjoyed blogging until I ran into this trouble, but all is good now in Helens blogging world! Til tomorrow…..

Cock a doodle doo…

I have a lot of photos in my file still to show from recent makes, but I have skipped ahead to show you one I made last night after making my purchases yesterday. I bought the new kaisercraft range of Madame Boutique, and I waasn’t going to get any of the other release – Cock a doodle doo… but on an impulse picked up the 6″ pad and the sheet with all the animals printed on it as well as the bag of collectibles. Have you seen those? This is something new Kaisercraft are bringing out with their monthly ranges ad they are great. A bag full of printed cardstock cut outs – absolutely perfect for cardmaking. Anyway I got distracted… I bought these on a whim, and when I got home I did make  a card with the Madame Boutique, but I made 6 with the cock a doodle doo and had  to force myself to go to bed . I still have a lot of ideas in my head for this paper its such great fun! Nathans camera is still away being fixed, but he has borrowed Kays for the weekend as he has a wrestling show to photo, so we used it today to take photos of my latest cards. He was just making sure the settings were right for him!Til tomorrow…..
