Black and White

Hi Friends! Where has this week gone? I am sure I am not alone when I say that a Bank Holiday throws all the days of the week out for me...the weekend seems to have arrived very fast this week! Anyway hope you all had a good Easter with lots of chocolate and perhaps some crafting. Me?  a little chocolate (trying to be good) and NO crafting....mojo seems to have gone on Easter hols and forgotten to come home...maybe it will return this weekend!

A Black and White card for a male this week. I think it is pretty self explanatory.

The sentiment stamp is Woodware and the 60 numbers are Papermania stamps,stamped and cut out and then a lot of Glamour dust added for the sparkle. The scalloped edge is a Spellbinder die. A style that can be adapted to suit a female done in different colours.
I am never thrilled at having to make male cards, like a lot of us....must be that men are hard to please? Having said that it is my eldest sons birthday next here we go again!

Before I go I have to welcome my new follower ...thank you for joining me..and also a big thank you to all the people that have left such lovely comments on my blog.It really makes my day...and also reminds me that I am not just talking to myself! THANK YOU EVERYONE! so much.

OK...things to do......maybe that male card.......groan!...or the ironing? Which will win?...not much to choose between them...maybe the card is a better bet...but then the ironing will be started and finished ...the card? well I could still be sat thinking about what to do for that one next week!

Have a super weekend whatever you are doing.I am going in search of mojo!

  9. Sorry I missed this post! Brilliant man's card, yes why are male cards so hard to do??? Maybe it's the lack of reaction? Nick is the same whatever I show him - either a 'yeah' 'oh' 'ok' or even worse 'na'! Good luck with your son's card! xxx
