Hello everyone and a particularly warm welcome to a couple of new friends who are joining us as followers this week. Nancy of the summers on 49thstreet blog is a talented artist who has two cute dogs and she makes lovely bright cards using a variety of materials, often creating really cute scenes.
Gloria has also joined us but I'm afraid I couldn't find a link to a blog Gloria, so if you have one, do please let me know so we can come to say hello.
I don't know where this week has gone to! Actually, yes I do. I made the mistake of deciding to sort through a lot of the things I kept from my children's schooldays. You know what I mean - pictures from playschool and beyond, stories, school reports and achievement certificates. I thought I would cull the rubbish and pass little packages on to the children who are now adults with their own households, but of course I had to read everything I picked up, and it took hours and hours. My husband joined me and so we reminisced about past events and holidays etc, and, needless to say, hardly anything got thrown out!
I'd like to share a CAS, monochrome, masculine card that I made for my son's 30th birthday
I used the Noted stamps from Papertrey Ink to create the chevrons, and cut the 30 out of the pale grey card so you could see through to the bottom layer. The happy sentiment was cut with a die several times and stacked together to add some dimension. I still struggle and am out of my comfort zone with masculine cards but Nick seemed to like it, so that is what matters!
I'd like to play along with:-
Crafting for all Seasons - milestone celebrations
Fab n Funky - masculine card
The Male Room - letters and numbers
Stamplorations - stamps and numbers
Thanks for stopping by
