A selection of cards for men...

I felt inspired to make some mens cards last night, to put in my "box"....

 I thought these can images were great for some quick and simple cards...

 I used glossy accents on the can images, although you can't see that on the pics...

 I used my white sakura pen to put some little extra bits here and there -
lines and dots, etc.

....and I must admit, I am quite pleased with them!!!

Back to it...

I've been crafting away in black and white, lately.
I like the monochrome look.
Oh, and I had some birthday cards to make for friends, too! :)

I love this embossed border, bought it from a craft show a few years ago.
The stamp is a recent purchase, from Hobbycraft.
The sentiment was a free stamp in Creativity magazine a few months ago.
I decoupaged some of the stamp...the birdhouse and birds,
and added pearls to the embossed flowers.

 I used the same birdhouse stamp,
decoupaged the house and birds again,
a few punched butterflies, and
a "FRIENDS" stamp, which I got from QVC yonks ago...and I had
forgotten I had it!

This lovely chandelier is a Pink Petticoat image. 
(The backing paper too!)
The silver butterflies are my first try with my new craftler stapler
and staples... I love em!  Dead easy to use
and you can put them anywhere in a page!

Had to make these cat cards again...they have been popular and are
quick and easy to make.
Thanks for looking and any comments you might leave! xx

A January birthday and.. I forgot to show you another!

 I made this quickly, last week
for a relative whose birthday was this weekend.
Image is a digi-image from S.J , which I absolutely love!
I decoupaged parts, added a craftwork cards sentiment
and a few butterflies with opening wings.
I backed the image onto Pink Petticoat paper and
embossed simply, around the image.

Tjis is the card I forgot to show you...I made it for a birthday just before Christmas...
I was bag of nerves while I made this card...
It was a comission from a friend at work - for her niece.
"She loves Harry Styles and I don't think shes a girly-pink-girl."
Oh Help!!
This is the finished product....
(It looks a lot better in real life...honest!)
I diecut her name and age, made my own butterflies, with open wings,
added gems to her name and a bit of sparkle here-and-there.
I superimposed the lippy on his cheek,,,hopefully looking like she kissed him and
he's sending her one back!
My friend absolutely loved it, and apparently it went
down a storm with her niece!!!
