Smile Please!

Hi blogging friends.......... Smile please it's a Bank Holiday weekend! and at this point I wish you all  a good one. Lets hope the weather is kind to us all.
OK on with the please, another male card, quite quick and easy........and if you read my last post I am still on with said sons card and fast running out of time, the inspiration is just not there :(    just taking a few minutes out and a cuppa to do this post. I often find I see things better if I walk away for a while and come back to's hoping eh!

The camera is my Dreamies stamp and I used Diamond Glaze on the lens but it doesn't show in the photo.The film strip is from the same stamp set and I stamped it on acetate...... the rest is from my stash...yeah I have used some up! I used Kraft card for my card blank and matting for a change, and quite like it.
Right well I had better get back to that other male card and see if I can convince myself not to be too much of a perfectionist. I'll be giving it to him tomorrow night as we are going out for a meal so best get a move on!
I'll show you next week...if I like it that is!

Take care everyone and thanks so much for stopping by, I do appreciate you doing so and you make my day if you leave me a comment.

He did commercial photos, not weddings. Like you, I struggle with men cards. I don't get much emjoyment from making them either. Have a lovely weekend. Supposed to be warm on Sunday!Lol!
