Men can be very difficult at times especially when it comes to cards!
I am constantly being asked about designs for mens cards.  They are quite overlooked when it comes to stamps and designer papers so its quite refreshing and also inspiring when we get new ones of either.

Graphic 45 are always a good resource for mascular themed papers.  Their kraft collection contains clocks and watches and deep espresso and natural browns.

With that in mind I have put a quick card together adding a deep mustard scalloped edge from Bazzill.
You can fix a picture or greeting on the inside of the accordian that is on the front.

With the Jubilee and Olympics hammering on our front door I have had to include a smattering of red white and blue! I love using these colour combinations anyway but to have an excuse is just great!

I have used these stamps on a design I am doing at the workshops next week so this card is from a selection of examples to go with it. Three iconic images that are recognised the world over! To get a more detailed image just double click on any of the cards I have posted and it will bring the image up closer!

Ollie is recovering from a horrible tummy upset - he has been feeling very sorry for himself.  The vet has been rubbing her hands together and booking her summer hols on the bill we have just paid - bring in NHS for animals!
Have a great weekend - whatever you are up to!
